This location is a law firm. We are lucky they let us use this site and we have never had any drama here in years of use for pinball events. Please help us keep it that way and behave accordingly. No alcohol is allowed on the premises (this is strictly enforced, no exceptions) and you should be dressed in business casual or nicer clothing. Park properly and do not in any way disturb any staff of this law firm if they happen to be working or departing when you arrive. If you do not behave appropriately you will be asked to leave. There are no practice games allowed. This is an elite collection we are all enjoying with HEP restored games, Keith Holbrook restored games, refinery edition games, and legit HUO single owner B/W games, treat the games well at all times or you will be asked to leave.
