Happy Fourth for gamers!

3 07 2012

If you plan on staying in this Fourth of July, we’d recommend playing Super Stardust to get in the holiday spirit.

The Fourth of July is upon us and the crew at LAN Speed Games plans to celebrate in style with a barbecue for their regulars.

The BBQ will take place at the venue on the 4th and there is no entry fee. Instead attendees are asked to bring items to grill up such as hamburgers, hotdogs, and other meat items. What better way to celebrate the fourth than a good old fashioned grill-up?

LAN Speed Games is located at 6750 West Peoria Avenue in Peoria.

And from The Pause Button, a very happy Fourth to our readers. Thanks for your continued support!
