    Heading there soon, looking for someplace to play. Pin Map doesn't look promising.

    Nope. How long will you be in town? I'm 2 hours north on I-49.

    I'm another hour from Nevus if you wanna swing by.

    I appreciate the offer but it's too far, I don't have a rental car this time, I'm sharing one with another guy.

    There really isn't anything here. Someone said they thought there was a pizza place that had a couple, but didn't know which pizza place.

    I guess it's more Zen and TPA on the laptop :\

    There is a skating rink in Pineville that someone though might have a pinball machine but they are closed for mardi gras week.

    Mardi Gras is today so they may be reopening tomorrow, 2/18.

    Well, here is one of the rare instances where simulated pinball prevailed. I'm glad they didn't bolt the TV to the stand

    LOL. That's funny. You must be a high roller to be in a hotel that doesn't bolt the TV down.

    It's likely the cost of the security kit for the TV is now more expensive than the TV itself so they don't bother anymore. The room actually had 2 TV's.

    Glad I'm back home, there's nothing to do in Alexandria as far as pinball.

    Zb,
    Agreed concerning pins out on locations. Not very many in LA.
    That's why we've been building up home collections and started up pinball clubs, and go to pinball festivals & expos in Dallas/Hou, etc.
    There is barcades in N.O. & Lafayette, and maybe now one opened up in B.R., but not sure.
    Then the random pin in a bar/pizza place/movie theatre/etc.

    Perhaps you can take the lead on organizing and running the annual Louisiana Pinball Festival, complete with pinball machines, tournaments, guest speakers, raffles, t-shirts.

    Yes that's what I mean pins on location. I live in Houma and I've only seen 1 pin on location and it's at a meat market and its a run down south park that dosnt at very well. I'm not interested in taking the lean on any festivals but I would be interested in joining a club and attending festivals. I would be interested in bringing a pin to a festival. I had plans on going to Texas pinball but I ended up having to go on call. But I'm def attending the southern fried in Atlanta in June. It will be my first arcade expo. Do you know if it's worth going?
