Where to begin with this amazing store. Well first off Dan is awesome with hosting all these events and has a great card selection to buy from and he is very talkative on commander matters. It is a close place to home and I enjoy the atmosphere there along with the occasional laugh with other customers. I have been to a lot of card stores in my time but I would have to say enlightened minds is one of the most fun environments I have been in.
