Going to Chicago this weekend. Any good places to hit to play some newer titles?

Also, probably bringing a Jeep Wrangler which I believe hauls pins just fine if anyone has something interesting (SS and newer) they are looking to sell.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Due to time we ended up checking out Logans and Headquarters. Enjoyed them both (although they mostly had the same pins, it was cool the Headquarters games were free!) Got a chance to play a bunch of games I hadn't before (including Alien...sort of...the ball kept getting stuck)...now the wife wants and AC/DC or a Ghostbusters (which was quite a surprise).

One complaint though....

Newer games rely SO much on audio. This isn't really an issue on pre-toy, pre-tunnle pins. At Logans, the sound on most games was turned completely off, and/or the bar music was so loud you couldn't hear the games at all. This just doesn't work on games you know nothing about..especially the new games that have 20 second audio clips etc. You end up not really knowing what is going on. It was slightly better at Headquarters that you could actually hear most of the games callouts. We had a couple friends with us that weren't really into pinball but had a good time, but they said the same thing. Or to quote a bit more " there would be times the ball would be gone for 10-20 seconds, and you'd have no idea where it went, and then it would shoot out from somewhere'. Now, sometimes there might be some sort of light flash, but that is rare, especially now with all the led's going crazy constantly. Just something for people to think about.

Problem with the headphone jack idea is you're going to get people who have imbibed a bit too much who snap them off while humping the game or forgetting to take them out and walking off, but I'm sure it would be fine most of the time.
