Photos from Level 257's PAC-MAN Art and Fashion Show

Level 257 isn’t new, but it’s new to me. It’s a Schaumburg restaurant, bar, arcade, and bowling alley inspired by PAC-MAN. Given that I frequently rock my PAC-MAN t-shirt and belt, it seems like I should’ve stopped by sooner. Finally, last Thursday, it was my turn. Geek Girl Jess and I were invited to Level...

10 geeky bags and purses for fashionable fangirls

Quite a few chic Star Wars handbags have entered the market. My personal favorites are these bowling bag-inspired pieces. I have the R2-D2 version.

Does My New Year's Resolution Suck??

Happy New Year, geeks!  Welcome to 2014.  We’ve only been here for 3 days, and I already need some feedback.  You see, I’m starting to worry that my New Year’s Resolution sucks.  I only made just one, as opposed to last year (FAIL), and well… I’m afraid it might make me a hypocrite. In 2014, I’m resolving... Read more »
