    The thread title's bad English but self explanatory.

    Oh, and NO Monty Python please!

    No cake, but one of the greatest sections of reasonably priced vinyl, CDs, DVDs and other media, often rare, that I have ever seen. It's so good, I drive there once a year to lurk and buy. Nice, knowledgable people, too.
    Happy birthday!

    Stick around for a couple of hours at least. They're processing new pre-owned arrivals and putting them out on the floor all day long. You can pick up some great stuff by being the first to browse.

    Expect your wallet to be a lot lighter by the time you leave.

    It's a great store....give yourself at least a few hours to go through all the aisles + the dollar bins.

    Great store. Be prepared to spend a lot of time there but be sure not to let your parking meter run out.

    Get there early to find a parking space and as others have already mentioned, have at least an hour and a half to browse and bring lots of your birthday money, as you will be spending a bunch there. I will admit that I have struck gold a few times there, but a few times I have left damn near empty handed. Best to a have a list of artists or titles of stuff that you are looking for, as that store can sometimes seem overwhelming!

    There's a parking garage a block or so behind the store which was reasonably priced last time I was there.

    Thanks for the helpful information so far. I'm not headed there until sometime this weekend (Thursday, Friday or Saturday) so if anyone else has something to add, keep it coming.

    Oh, and yes, the details of my haul will be posted in the usual place.

    Can't speak to Princeton, haven't been there in decades, though I know a few people that make the trip when they are selling off a newly acquired collection.
    Doubledecker has had some very good stuff- near or in Bethlehem; don't know how far that is from you.
    Happy Birthday.

    Street parking on Sundays is free (last I checked) and there's a free lot also by the University south of the main street.

    Getting there early is usually the best bet.
