    I did not see this on ifo Apple Store or Apple's website, but it was confirmed to me by Southlake Town Square's management office that Apple will be opening their Southlake Store this weekend along with the Grand Opening of "Grand Avenue."

    For those of you who don't know, Southlake is just North of Dallas/Fort Worth by about 15 minutes, and would be a great place to spend the day as they have many great shops and restaurants.

    I can't tell, but by the looks of the flyer on the Grand Opening, it looks as if the Apple Store Southlake might be giving away a $500 gift certificate. Anyone know anything about this??

    Photos of store were from ifo apple store, and for more information on Southlake Town Square, check out www.southlaketownsquare.com .

    I'll be there with a buddy of mine. Anyone else going?

    What's up peterparker, what time are you guys coming...I am picking a buddy up at 5:30 to be there around 6:00am. The wait will most likely be outside this time, and it should be nice weather....now if I could just find an extra battery for the pb (or maybe I can squeeze 4 hours out of mine), I'll be in business. Ha!

    I'll be there hopefully around 8ish, leaving today and staying in Irving tonight. Mrs. peterparker has a prior engagement so she'll be missing out on this one. See ya there.

    Yes, my wife really wanted to come to this one, but is working tomorrow. (the first Sat. she has had to work all year)

    Sooo...my equally fanatical friend John is coming, and we'll save you a spot.

    See you there.

    Just a word of warning to everyone coming to Southlake for this event. Saturday is not just the opening of a new Apple store, but the opening of an entire new division of Southlake Towne Square (Southlake's "outdoor mall"). In fact I have driven through the part of the parking lot that is accessable and have not been able to see the Apple Store as much of this new section is partitioned off to the public and I imagine it will be until the Grand Opening. I don't know what this will do to those planning on standing in some sort of line.

    This has been hyped for quite a while and will be the thing to do. There is a parade planned and the majority of the community is expected to be in attendance. Good Luck.

    Fear not, my friend, there is a Starbucks onsite, which should cure any road wear, and we should be toward the front of the line.

    Wpod, Capt. Underpants, you guys coming to this one?

    I am the empty chair, 5th in line. My buddy John is next to me typing on his pb. Wives did not make it this early. The kid in the front, and his dad were here at midnight, and there was a break-in overnight in the town square. The cops came up to them and they said they were waiting for the Apple Store opening. Ha!

    I'm sure the cops were like, ummm..hmmm.

    Edit: Fingersssss are freeeeziing! Trying to run as many programs as possible, maximizing heat. Hope the battery lasts.

    It was neat being first to go in...for a second I was kinda worried because some of the people were complaing and acting foolish! But the Apple people made sure I was first!

    I'm working on a video so I'll have that out in a second!

    razzmatazz, sweet, glad you are a part of the greatness of MR. I am glad they recognized letting you guys in first. It was chaos this morning. I am actually back here for a second time. Our wives drug us back up here, so we are playing w/ the macbooks and they are looking at clothes.

    Sweet!

    I am on the left in peterparker's pic and my buddy John is on the right, and am actually standing in the same place that pic was taken this morning, I am most definitely a geek.
