First stop, the annual CHIRP record fair. Held in a union hall. Lots of bargains and not so much bargains. The place reeked of stale cardboard. I love that smell almost as much as new vinyl.
After that, I had Uberman take me to hipster Wicker Park
Recklesss Records - Chicago
According to the Record Store Day store locator, Reckless Records was located on Milwaukee. Well they won't be at that location for a few days. Their old location, which closed the day after I visited, was up the block. The new location will be much larger. They have a few locations around town including one in The Loop.
Then there was Shuga. Hadn't heard of this one. Nice vibe and selection. Turntables for sale as well. They have the old neon from Record Surplus - a store that used to be nearby.
Also hit up the new kid on the block, Dusty Groove. Nice vibe, but they tend to specialize in Jazz and Hip Hop. Not my cup of meat.
