Great Idea Rob. Thanks for doing this.

Are all those machines playable to the general public or just for tournys?

Quoted from Chitownpinball:

Are all those machines playable to the general public or just for tournys?

Yes, all the machines, including the ones running TOPS tourneys, will be there from 5/27 to 6/5 for folks to just walk up, coin up and play as normal.

The only time there will be any restriction on them is for the 9 games that are selected for the Memorial Day tournament for a couple of hours until it's over. If you're there while the tour is going on and don't want to play in it, then there will still be 9 games we aren't using during that time.

So come on out any time the bar is open and enjoy the games, same as if just the usual 4 were there

#6 4 years ago

So many great games in the mix - can't wait for this!! For anyone that doesn't know, Brixie's always has an awesome selection of beers on tap and solid bar food. And Rob keeps his games in tip-top shape, so don't miss the chance to come out and play some games you'll RARELY find on location.

#7 4 years ago

Wow nice lineup!!! This sounds like fun, I am going to try to get down there 5/28
Thanks for hosting this Great Event!!!

Right on! 32 taps of craft bliss. The pulled pork fries are something special, and the burgers are pretty damn good too.

#11 4 years ago

Memorial Day just got awesome. Can't wait!

#12 4 years ago

The one week away bump.

#13 4 years ago

Anyone know if the Rocky at this show will be for sale?

#14 4 years ago

Rob would know

#15 4 years ago
Quoted from Gilkins0718:

Anyone know if the Rocky at this show will be for sale?

I very, very seriously doubt it.

Nine day bump!

#16 4 years ago

I'll be there one the days. Not sure which one yet. Great line up for public play.

#17 4 years ago
Quoted from Gilkins0718:

Anyone know if the Rocky at this show will be for sale?

Unfortunately no, none of them will be fs, but on the plus side Rocky and all the others will be there for duration.

It's not really a show as much as it is simply a pinball location that is expanding the lineup from 4 games to 18 for about 10 days.

#18 4 years ago

You should change out the GNR for Radical. Better Sounds. Nothing beats a Keytar.

#19 4 years ago

Four day bump! Only 96 hours 'til I drink all the beer and brick all the shots.

#23 4 years ago

I'll be out there signing autographs, I'm pretty good at faking Steve Richie's, pops dukes and kinda getting Pat Lawlors down, so bring some shit, I'll sign it

Thanks for posting those pics Chris! and of course for helping out big time too! Special thanks to CraigC and Scribble who were key in helping to make this happen too!

Been meaning to get on pinside and pump this a bit more, but I been working like a dog the last 3 night to make sure it was all ready for today.

#28 4 years ago

I gotta say, the Trudeau Row is looking pretty bad ass!
A tribute to one of Pinball's Greats!
