    Heading down on Saturday...and leaving the kids at home for a change. Can't wait.

    One of these years, I'll spend the weekend and really let loose with my fellow pinsiders.

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    yup, lol
    milwaukee.craigslist.org link

    Seems legit. lol

    I'm no regular on the pinball circuit (and have only been to Expo - no other shows anywhere else), but how do you allow a show in as big a market to be handled or advertised like this?

    It seems to me that a pinball 'expo' in Chicago should be second to none.

    Had a great time today at Expo!

    Thanks to everyone who runs the show, but even more importantly, THANK YOU to everyone who brings games for the free play area.

    Saw a bunch of old friends, like Dan Spolar who runs Project Pinball, John Borg who is not only a great designer but a great guy and great friend, and I even met an ex-NBA player in Todd MacCulloch who was a really nice guy and fun to talk pinball with between turns on Star Wars.

    Played a bunch of great games, some for the first time. Found myself having a blast playing pins I wouldn't have thought I'd like, such as Last Action Hero, Demolition Man, and Family Guy. And I finally got to play a Tron! Tried Star Wars only one time, because I couldn't stop from playing a pin I keep wanting not to like: Aerosmith! I really don't want another rock band pin, but I don't think I'm going to be able to stop myself from buying one. It's just so damn fun.

    Again, thank you to everyone involved with Expo! Leaving the kids at home allowed my wife and I to stay most of the day and got us talking of actually staying overnight next year. The countdown to 2018 begins...

    Edit: Actually the countdown to 11/1 begins. Heading back to Stern after my son's next clinic visit/checkup to see the Borg in its natural habitat!
