Couldn't find a thread about this location so I figured I'd create one.

The Black Cat, longtime home to W?D and STTNG, recently expanded its selection of pins, creating a room called "the lucky cat". It officially opened last weekend. I stopped by and participated in a tournament, and had a great time!

The lineup while I was there:
Wizard of Oz
AC/DC
Twilight Zone
The Addams Family
Star Trek: The Next Generation
Who Dunnit
World Poker Tour
Gorgar

I think some of those machines were only there for the tournament. not sure what the everyday lineup is.

I'm kicking myself for not taking any photos. the tournament was late Sunday night, and there were 30+ people there participating. it was a young group -- most looked like they were in their 20s. the tournament was well-organized and ran smoothly and swiftly. overall, a ton of fun. hope they do more!

I've been going to the black cat for 20 years, now I have even more reason to make the trek.

They removed some tables from the small cafe area on your left when you walk in.

The pinball room is right through the window facing 14th st, where the cafe was.

That block of 14th is in some of the nicest parts of DC now!

Too nice...you used to be able to park around the Black Cat when 14th between P and T was a dead zone. Now forget finding parking on 14th, and all the side streets are newly zoned for residents only even at night. At least I can still park around Lyman's
