Where should I go to play pinball? Does anyone know if there's a TWD anywhere to play?

I know of Modern Pinball...just curious what else was out there. I agree with you on Bonzai Run. I've always liked it.

Yep, NYC. One of my best friends (Nate Bargatze) is filming a special for Comedy Central and I'm helping out with some photography. We're going to go out and play some pinball, so I'm trying to figure out the best places to go.

Life changing experience: pancakes at Clinton Street Baking Company.
Go as soon as they open, so you don't have to wait in line.
Do it, and tell me I'm wrong. I dare you!
Near Kat's Deli. South Houston.
Do it!

Listen to me and listen closely.

You absolutely MUST take one of "Scotts Pizza Tours" when in Manhatten. Just trust me. Later you will thank me.

Just did a little digging...I wondered why these places only have a few machines at a time and rotate them...turns out the magic number is 9...if they have more than 9 machines they are considered an arcade and have to pay more taxes or permit fees,something along those lines...so these places have up to 9 at a time and rotate them....I think modern gets away with having more because they say they are an "interactive showroom" and all machines are for sale...all are on free play and you pay a fee to enter...smart move as they priced the machines so high that they are not going anywhere...I mean their T2 has a $12,000 asking price...WoW......heck if your there for a bit might as well check them all out..........Joey

I used to play guitar a lot in college and this girl asked me to come over and help her with some songs. She had all these pics of her and Hank Williams Jr. I asked her if her last name was Williams and she said yep. I've always been a Bosephus fan and I mentioned that and we went to a show and I got to meet him. Super down to earth guy.
