    Just saw the articles and thought I would pass it on - not many specifics regarding the makeover but good to know they are expanding.

    Great spot, I go there a lot!

    The Silverball he owns in Del Ray Beach Florida is really cool too (couple of full bars and live music inside). Heard they were trying to get alcohol permits for NJ location but wayyy too expensive.

    Thats great. Im hoping they add some newer non JJP games as well. Some sterns or spookys would be great

    I’ve spoke with a couple people there and for some reason they do not like stern machines. They say it’s because they don’t hold up as well as JJP and older Bally/Williams but I think there is more to that story - just speculation of course.

    Dont hold up as well service wise? That would
    Be crazy because most of their JJP games are a mess. Chipped/ripped playfields and many times Im there those machines are having issues. The GnR there had terrible playfield issues shortly after arriving there.

    I would think sterns would be the most serviceable newer game in most cases. But I dont route games so I wouldnt know for sure I guess.

    Now if they just dont think Sterns are worth it gameplay wise I guess thats ok for them to think that way.

    They will never have any of the more recent Stern machines unless someone donates a freebie.

    Are the JJPs donated from jack or something?
