Exile on Main Street

Apparently Exile on Main Street has been open for about five months without me knowing anything about its existence until yesterday. During my lunchbreak I was smoking a cigar and walking around downtown Champaign when I noticed that one of the store fronts at the new One Main building had an oldish stand-up coin-op video game in the window. Turns out Exile on Main Street is a new and used CD/DVD/videogame establishment. Not exactly my cuppa but still pretty durn cool. The music section includes a resptable shefload of local musicians and labels. I nearly bought a neat looking magazine called Retro Gamer, but it was a British import with a cover price of thirteen dollars American. Yeesh. I take back all the things I've ever said about Dragon being too pricy.
