Default Chicago Hobby Shops

Seems like as good a forum as any to post this... So, I'm stuck in Skokie for 3 days next week. Where are the good hobby shops in the Chicago area? Any with any kits?

My vote for the best is Venture Hobby in Wheeling. I no longer have a card as I know where to go when I'm at one of my kid's house up there. Phone # is in most any phone book or from operator.

Shop is located in a strip mall on the north-side of Dundee Road and it's very close to the west side of Wheeling and east side of Buffalo Grove. It's a big store and has about everything including a vast selection of plastics, however RC airplanes and cars are the main ticket.

To put things in proper perspective, I think you are "stuck" in Pekin for 362 days, I've been to Pekin.
