Games and Gizmos is where I play on alternate Friday nights. Formerly Genesis Games and Gizmos, it recently moved to it's current location, dropped the Genesis from the name, and seems to have more space by my reconing. The schedule of events is available at the front counter - on Friday nights, there is a regular Magic: The Gathering tournament, as well as a 4th edition D&D game, plus our game (lately it's been Savage Worlds). While the noise can get pretty loud on the Magic nights, the overall atmosphere is good. It seems pretty family friendly and has a good selection of board games.

I've been very satisfied gaming there as this is the first time in over a decade that I've actually gamed in a store. After the game, I usually check out the new stuff and recently picked up the newly released Zombie Dice and Cthulhu Dice from Steve Jackson Games. There is plenty of street and lot parking as well as good (and cheap) restaurants nearby.
