Any great places to play pinball in Seattle?
Shorty's!!! Unless you're with the wife and kids.
It's a dive bar.
It's the place that got me hooked on pins.
Not sure if you're a beerhead or not, but ask if they've got Mack and Jacks on tap. It's the best beer I've ever had. Most places sell Manny's and say it's superior to Mack and Jack's, but I disagree.
Also, I hope you're not one of those people that's really scared of clowns ... you'll see why.
Seattle has a ton! there were a few mentions of places in the Drop Target Zine...damn but I forgot them
Seattle Pinball Museum. 508 Maynard Ave, International District
Full Tilt Ice Cream in Ballard
Just got back from Shorty's, and damn it was awfull. Been there before years ago and loved it; but seriously crappy condition games. 75cents for games is arguable but didn't upset me, but usually I like the GI in a game to work; Oh well.
As Mutato said, skill shot looks awesome. Snoose Junction Pizza joint in Ballard had a MB & WCS that were better than 99% games at Shortys. Also there's an Ice Cream joint threre I didn;t get to goto but I think they got some good stuff. We were told on the phone they "only have Pinball, ice cream, & beer." Sounds perfect for sure but didn't get around to it.
