    Congrats. I still think you should put a mirror on the other wall.

    #20 3 years ago

    Great shirts and FLYNN'S based "FROLIC'S" sign too! Now you just need a miniature version for the TRON pin!

    #21 3 years ago

    This looks awesome! Nicely done.

    I was inspired early on by other collectors, and certainly other pinsiders like pmWolf who raised the bar for basement arcades. Happy to pass on a little of this madness.

    Very nice, congrats on the article. I just installed a 8x4 sheet of mirror acrylic on the side wall to do exactly what you did. (I didn't know any else did that).

    #24 3 years ago

    Great article... I've had 3 non-pinheads (friends and family) send me this article because they knew I'd love it. Funny the last place I see it tonight is on pinside. When is the next charity night? Would love to check it out in person.

    #25 3 years ago

    This is amazing! Thanks for sharing with us!

    #26 3 years ago

    Great article. Thank you !

    You have to pass the super secret initiation ritual before frolic will give you the address. How do you feel about raccoons and small spaces?

    #28 3 years ago

    I believe confining raccoons to small places to be a cruel and unusual punishment for them, but if it gets me in to a charity night I will turn a blind eye and just enjoy the pins. Poor things.
