As you all know, we love the Chicago Toy and Game Fair here. I've been taking my kids for years.

    • Inventor Meet and Greet throughout both days!! Want to meet the inventor of BopIt? Operation? Jenga? Nerf? Twister? You can say “hello” and get inside knowledge from all – they’ll at the Fair. Also meet upcoming inventors and try their products out. You’ll be able to say you knew them before they were hot!

  • R2D2 Dogs
    (Chicago-Style Hot Dogs)
    Served on warm poppy seed buns with all the fixins to include ketchup, mustard, relish, diced tomatoes, diced onions, sport peppers, and celery salt
  • Chewbacca Nacho Bar
    warm cheese sauce, jalapenos, diced green onions, diced tomatoes, and sour cream
  • Assorted Jumbo Wookies
    chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin and peanut butter
  • Darth Brownies
    (Fudge Brownies)
  • Jabba the Punch, Iced Tea and Lemonade
    (Fruit Punch)

My picky eater will definitely eat off this menu! Okay, I am going to be honest Bill and I are beyond excited ourselves. Shhh, don't tell anyone.
