    My #1 choice of all the awesome "barcades" on the west coast???

    Blairalley in Eugene,Ore with it's great selection and variety of ERA'S
    This place ROCKS!!!!!

    While there are many other good "barcades" to choose from,my only
    wish is that I live in the Eugene metro area,but I don't.

    Tell us your FAV'S

    It's been awhile I really need to go back there.

    Ground Kontrol in Portland gets my vote

    I got to go with my local - Coin jam in Salem. Nice well maintained pins, friendly staff, good brews.

    -- On the other hand, Blairalley does have a nice selection of older pins not often seen in the wild....

    Shorty's is good, but last time I was there some of the pins were dirty & not in the best of shape. Need to maintain them a little better.

    My vote would be for the 8-Bit Arcade in downtown Renton, WA. 26 pins, all in top nick because the owner/ops are all great technicians and love their games. Good beer from Big Al's (also local). The owners also run The Local 907 sports bar across the street which has a High Speed II and serves great sandwiches and other bar food.

    Yeah I go with shortys.

    It's a great bar first and pinball second.

    Ok, it's not officially a barcade, but there are two pins there... Portland, OR

    Not a barcade but the Seattle Pinball Musuem is a great spot too

    #10 5 years ago

    The Museum sells beer. It's a barcade.
    Shorty's is having their big annual tournament tomorrow. Dunno if I'm gonna play, though. 80 or more people in a tiny area like Shorty's. Nope. Not my thing.
    Which is another point for the 8-Bit. 80 people could easily all fit inside. Nice outside back patio where you can smoke, phone, and/or just chill with your pinball pals too.
    Other Seattle locations:
    Flip Flip Ding Ding (Georgetown, 16 pins)
    Add-A-Ball Amusements (Fremont, 18 pins)
    Another Castle, Arcade Edition (Lynnwood, 15 pins)
