    Gryszzz finally made it out to Columbus Ohio. Although he stayed for less than 24 hours, it was a great time! He arrived at my house shortly after 5pm Wednesday with his Mustang Pro. We unloaded it and set it up in the carport. About 20 minutes later, Rick pomc showed up from WVa to buy Gryszzz's Mustang. The three of us played a few games outside on Mustang with my 13 year old son and then went downstairs and had some fun with Strikes & Spares, Skateball and Metallica. Rick loaded up the Mustang and left before 7:30pm to make the drive back home while gryszzz and I knocked back a few more beverages. Around 9:30 we called an Uber and headed 15 minutes away to Arcade Super Awesome, where we downed several more beverages while playing the superb offering of pins. Spent most of the time playing Aerosmith, which we both agreed has an amazing light show. Took an Uber back home before midnight and played some more pins in the basement. Staggered upstairs after turning off the TV and asking Gryszzz if he wanted me to leave the TV on. "Nope," he mumbled, staring blankly at the dark screen. As I ascended the stairs, I yelled, "Remember, the second bedroom is the guest room. It's all yours." "Second bedroom. Got it," slurred Gryszzz. Woke up at 7am Thursday to take the kid to school, and Gryszzz was not upstairs. Descended the stairs to find him curled up on the little half-couch in front of the TV, which was still off. Must have just fallen over stayed put. He got up a few hours later and I funneled about three cups of coffee into him to bring him to life. We were both feeling a bit rough, but managed to play a few games on Skateball before Gryszzz trudged out to his vehicle to make the hung over 4 hour drive home. Great to meet PoMC and always an adventure with Gryszzz. Thanks for the weekend in the middle of the week! Cheers, my friends!

    Excellent writeup! I wish I could have gone to that arcade to play some Aerosmith with you guys but I had a 6 hour drive home. I actually knocked a half hour off of my ETA and made it back home in five and a half hours and got in about 12:30.

    It was great to meet you and thanks for your hospitality and pizza. Always fun to play pinball and race slot cars.

    Gryszzzz is an awesome dude.

    #7 2 years ago

    Hell yeah. The Gryzzz and Violin Steve reunited. Two kick ass fellas.

    Thanks for showing everyone how well the springtime 2017 diet is going, dick.
    Worst thread ever.

    I took out the biggest beer gut pictures, Buttmunch. You should be happy I didn't put up any hibernation pictures. Just documenting for evidence purposes. Dick.

    Did you guys break into the arcade? Where are all the people?

    This arcade is only open Wednesday through Saturday. We went on Wednesday for the last two hours they were open. They have Killer Queen tournaments on Wednesdays, so pretty much everyone that was still there at 10pm was playing Killer Queen. Nice to have the pins to ourselves.

    I find it quite the coincidence they have the same first name, and use the same nickname for it...

    Sound like you guys had a lot of fun and made the most of a short visit! Kudos!

    If it makes you feel any better Gryszzz,
    after seeing all the loaded plates at the TPF breakfasts and the nightly aftermath from the free happy hour, most pinhead's springtime 2017 diets went off the rails WAAAAYYYY before yours did.

    Good to see you and Steve together again!
    It's like 15' Expo never ended!

    #18 2 years ago

    Wait a minute - I never got the memo that pinheads were supposed to institute a Spring 2017 diet. WTF?!

    Guess I'll just have to wait until Spring 2018....

    Hey,Dickcheese, obviously you don't know your geography very well. Columbus is the capitol of Ohio and last I heard your not allowed in Ohio.

    "Dick" talk got you excited?

    #22 2 years ago
    Quoted from Skypilot:

    and last I heard your not allowed in Ohio.

    Neither is proper spelling, apparently.

    Quoted from chadderack:

    "Dick" talk got you excited?

    Nope. Just two of my favorite Pinside people getting together there. But Skypilot just reminded me that he lives there, too, so that kind of cancels it out.

    Keith is up northeast a couple hours away. You're always welcome in central Ohio, boob. I think it's far enough away from the blast radius of Youngstown that you should be pretty safe here.

    #24 2 years ago

    I might come knocking at your door!

    Have a new Home base in Nashville, so Im hoping to start there and visit the middle of the country!

    (Ill bring Boob from NJ!)

    Thanks for stopping by the arcade! Sorry Batman and ACDC were giving you trouble. Next time, give me some notice and Ill meet you guys there. Either that or text me that the change machine is broken. That gets me there real fast.
