Chicago Toy and Game Show or lots of COOL STUFF TO PLAY WITH!

ChiTagLogo_Hi_ResThis weekend is the 10th annual Chicago Toy and Game Fair!  We went last year and what a great time we had (thanks to The Rock Father for getting us invited). Two dads and two kids got to check out the latest and greatest in toys coming out.  Not only do you get to play with the toys many times you get to meet the inventors as well.  The kids were pretty much totally rocked the whole thing and we got to enjoy the blogger breakfast as well.  If you have a chance head on over to Navy Pier this weekend as it is open to the public. This Saturday, November 22 from 10am-6pm and Sunday, November 23 from 10am-5pm. A great time for the whole family! $10 adults, $5 kids and under  3 attends free.

CHITAG!!!

Tomorrow starts the Chicago Toy and Game Fair on Navy Pier.  I will be going with my 8 year old daughter and her friend.  It is the only one in the country open to the public.  It runs Saturday and Sunday.  If you like Star Wars there’s a luncheon on Saturday with some Jedi and what not.  I’m looking forward to a great time!!!.  Go to their website here for more details.

This is something a little different than the norm here at A Man, A Band and a Plan HQ.  I have not told the kids yet but the Joyce family is headed to the Chicago Toy and Game fair coming up on November 23rd and 24th.  We have garnered a bloggers family pass and I am pretty excited to see my kids reaction when we arrive. Plus it’s happening at one of the coolest places to visit in Chicago… Navy Pier!  They’re having a Star Wars luncheon on Saturday which if my kids were interested I would so be there!.  I have heard form a reliable source (The Rock Father strikes again) that this was a really good time last year.  To add more coolness there will be a man whom I have blogged about before in attendance with his great family.  No other than the guy who writes one of my favorite  blogs and whom I went with to the Grammys – Mr. Jeff Bogle.  You can read about our adventures here which I really should of titled Rolling With the Bogle.  Plus there shall be a few other Dad bloggers in attendance whom I’m looking forward to meeting.  If your interested in going just click on the picture at the top and it will take you there.  Perhaps a kids music stage in the future?
