Friendly Local Gaming Stores in SE Wisconsin

I strongly feel that you should support your Friendly Local Gaming Store!!  Here are some links to the FLGS that I have been to in Southeast Wisconsin.  I get almost all of my games at Rockheads in Kenosha.  Whenever I have to go to Appleton WI for work I stop by Chimera Hobby shop in Appleton and Fond Du Lac to see if they have any cool deals.  In fact I stop in at hobby and game shops where ever I go.
