I would like to share this post I came across on stereophile.com written by Stephen Mejias which is all about how he planned and then carried out his way of celebrating Record Store Day 2012. Having first decided to go to one if his favorite stores, he was then lured by J&R Music World in Lower Manhattan. Following that there was the Living Stereo store, which offered live music, merchandise discounts, and free beer. Sounds like my kind of store!
A really good read if you’ve not caught it yet:
