North Texas' newest hobby store celebrates its official Grand Opening Saturday, August 23rd, at Area 51 Gaming & Collectibles, 103 N. Main #130, in Grapevine. Owner Erin wants area hobbyists to know that the gaming tables are always free to play on! The Grand Opening celebration will feature a charity drive for the SPCA, with raffles for such prizes as a Gentle Giant Darth Vader statue, a choice of any in-stock Warhammer 40K Battalion boxed set, a helmet autographed by all of the 2008 NFL First Round Rookie Crop and a half-dozen more; door prizes; and sales on most if not all of the hobby lines they stock! Also, comics artist Brian Denham will be making an in-store appearance from 1pm-3pm, signing autographs (including free copies of his most recent work on the new 'X-Files' title, which if you haven't seen it features a script by series writer Frank Spotnitz which, combined with Brian's spot-on likenesses, gives the book more of the authentic 'X-Files' buzz than the recent movie did!). Area 51 will be the site of organized events as soon as such can be scheduled--so get familiar with them early, enjoy punch and pie, and celebrate their Grand Opening Saturday!
