Mr Bulgogi Food truck and a new pinball machine make a great Saturday afternoon! I can’t wait.

So I'm eating at my favorite wings place in Pittsburgh (Burg's wings - get the canjun) and guess what I see on the menu? HELICON raspberry wheat! My favorite.

Congrats on having it served at Burg's.

The best Pinball. Fantastic beer. Great owners. Cheers

Edit drinking #2 so good

That's awesome! I absolutely love the raspberry wheat and I'm not really a drinker so that tells you a lot.

Thank you! I get the cajun wings at Burgh's at least once a week usually 2-3 times. Great little spot! Wish they had some pins instead of the poker machines and pool table... Cheers!

Haha. When Chris B realizes I can't keep track of my inventory at Helicon, he sends me this. I love it! It is getting insane in there again ladies and gents. Next free play will be epic.

The prizes for the Elvira's House of Horrors (Limited Edition) have arrived! The tournament is Saturday 11/2. Unlimited qualifying games may be played from 2pm-6pm. Top half of the scores moved a single elimination bracket at 6pm. The finals are best of 3. No cost to enter beyond coin drop to play each game.

Cheers,
Chris

I had the opportunity to stop at Helicon Brewing with my wife and teenage kids as we were passing through the area yesterday. I asked them if we could take a 30-minute detour to stop and play some pinball for an hour. Little did I know, I would have to force them to leave after 2.5 hours. We had a great time playing pinball. The beer was good as well. You have a great establishment!

It was really nice to have so many new games in one place. I had previously only played about half of the games you have on the floor. I enjoyed Wonka, TWD and Batman 66 much more than I expected. There were also a couple of pins I expected to like but did not like them after playing them. That's the awesome part of having all those machines in one place. Thanks for the experience!

Just found out my frequency of work trips to Pittsburgh is going to double next year, there’s only one reason I’m excited about that

See you soon, Helicon!

I'm looking forward to the second annual Helicon Open. I'm hoping to improve on my 8th place finish from last year.
