Pandemonium Books & Games
File this one under oldies-but-goodies: Pandemonium Books & Games has been a local nerd institution for more than 23 years, and they stock the best in old-fashioned geeky fodder: books and tabletop games. Their specialty? Sci-fi and fantasy, of course. But there's no need to just buy your books and go — stick around and socialize with your fellow nerds, why don't you? Every night, the Pandemonium basement hosts a different tabletop game, from D&D to Warhammer 40K to Magic: The Gathering; check up on the schedule at Pandemonium's Web site.
