Hardware Happy Hour (3H) Chicago for June 2017

Hardware Happy Hour (3H) Chicago was excellent this past Tuesday at Saint Lou’s!


Sebastian Gajate was in town all the way from Argentina and presented The Amp Hour host Chris Gammell with his own fútbol jersey!

Brian Rutkowski’s impressive LED spinner project was a crowd pleaser!
