    Time to plan the next get together...in Allentown

    5pm. PM me for details if you don't have them already.

    A few local folks will becoming over to my house in New City this Saturday night to teach me how to play some real pinball. If anyone in the area is interested in meeting some folks and playing pinball send me a PM. New City is a few miles from The Tappan Zee bridge from the east and the top of the GSP from the west.

    I'm just a skip from the Palisades Mall, which locals should know very well. All machines are up and running well: ACDC premium, avengers LE,TFLE, SM and CSI.

    I'm much more agreeable in person...and I promise not to talk about guns, religion or politics!

    Just kidding about the car wash....

    #2 6 years ago

    Just over an hour and a half from me.... Tempting offer. What time?

    #3 6 years ago

    I'm IN! Come on Whrild! (I'll bring cigars!)
    Playin' pinball, talkin' movies!

    #4 6 years ago

    We can start fairly early. I can BBQ. I have a thing to do in the afternoon that won't take long and then I'm here. We could start around 5pm or 6pm, probably.

    #5 6 years ago

    This is getting better all the time!

    #6 6 years ago

    If your going Ted I will try and be there. If your bringing cigars I might have to try one. Never smoked anything a day in my life.

    BBQ is cool. You won't kick out a vegetarian now will ya?

    Quoted from spfxted: Playin' pinball, talkin' movies!

    Talkin' stooges! That thread got me back into watching some episodes again. It's been awhile since I've popped in a DVD of theirs.

    #7 6 years ago

    BBQ, cigars, stooges...alrighty then! Who else is IN??

    #8 6 years ago

    Wish I could come but bad timing for me as I'm heading to Pinburgh the next day & will be gone for a week! The wife would never allow me to come to this! lol I was lucky she let me go for the whole week for Pinburgh! I'll try to make your next one though...if there is a next one?

    #9 6 years ago

    Without a doubt! Vyzer is away too otherwise I'm sure he'd be there...

    #10 6 years ago

    I definitely would be there. Have a good time.

    #11 6 years ago

    Pinburgh isnt for a week!

    I have an old Laser Disc player and a projector in my game room, so Ted, if you have any of your films on Laser, bring them and we can play them on the wall, big as life!

    Vegetarian is fine...so long as I know how many are coming I can make lots of different foods. Can you grilled vegetables be cooked on a grill that's also cooking meat...or so we need an auxiliary meatless grill?

    Man, ACDC is playing so hot that I can't stand it. I LOVE Avengers LE but it's not in heavy rotation since ACDC arrived...and my beloved TFLE just sits there...,looking beautiful, practically untouched.

    #12 6 years ago

    No extra aux grilles needed. I will know for sure Friday if I can
    Make it.

    I was registered for pinburgh. Had to give up my spot as family events arose that weekend :/. Will be nice to get out and play with a bunch of others.

    I think I have some nice bourbon around the house too I can contribute to go with the cigars. Unless everyone prefers beer. I can bring some of that too. Don't think I have any homebrew left tho!

    #13 6 years ago

    I agree AC/DC trumps them all. Not that there is anything wrong with the others. AC/DC is just that kick ass

    Hope you can make it!

    #17 6 years ago

    I'm checking with the wife...I promised her a pin-free weekend!

    #18 6 years ago

    There's no such thing! Not anymore.my wife got "pin-free" weekends from 1992 until 2008...

    Anyway, I know I PMed to bring your wife, but I just found out my wife may not be here! Probably a good thing. She has this nasty habit of slapping burning objects out of my mouth...

    #19 6 years ago

    Well, you'll be gone and she can be pin-free!

    #20 6 years ago
    Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

    Might be fun to see...

    #21 6 years ago

    Bring your panavision!

    #24 6 years ago

    Come on!...Where are you NJ, NY, CT guys??

    #25 6 years ago

    I'm here...trying to free up my Saturday night so I can show off my feeble pinball skills!


    #26 6 years ago

    Sounds like its gonna be a blast.

    Unfortunately, I work the two nights most people reserve for these occasions.

    If you ever do anything on Sunday, or during the week, I'm in.

    Have fun fellas!

    #27 6 years ago

    If I wasn't tied up, I would carpool with these guys!

    #28 6 years ago

    Damn... gotta work all weekend or I'd' be driving across the Tap and driving my Flintstones pimped out for the party. Sounds like a fun event and it would be great to meet other NY pinheads! Have fun and drink a brew for Westchester!~SpOoKy

    #29 6 years ago

    Wish I could make this one... hope it goes well so there will be another when the weather gets warmer. Cheers!

    #30 6 years ago

    Sadly I can't make it this time around. Have fun.

    #31 6 years ago

    yes, considering all the folks within an hour or so, more regrets than attendees...I guess one must plan these more in advance.

    #32 6 years ago

    Is there a train station nearby?

    #34 6 years ago

    there's a NJ Transit train stop in Nanuet (very close) and also in Suffern (about 10 miles away). There are metro north stops in Tarrytown, just over the TappanZee bridge.

    Or, alternatively, maybe Ted or someone is near a station and could pick you up and drive you here.

    #35 6 years ago

    Are we on for 5pm?

    #36 6 years ago

    New City is that anywhere near New Jack City ? where they shot that movie

    #37 6 years ago

    Right next door...

    #38 6 years ago

    Get the Meat! Isn't that a Jagger line from New Jack City?

    I think 5pm works...no one has expressed a preference for start time...so let's tentatively say 5pm and see how the feedback goes.

    This is shaping up to be a decent little party. Certainly not an out of control "Woodstock" style pin festival like that held by Gerry...or the very impressive NoVA pin event hosted by Mr. Wizzo...or the highly sophisticated gatherings of Hwawonyu, but hey, some folks hanging out playing pins is always a good thing. Just wish I had some B/W to balance out the Sterns. Someday.

    So Gerry, Dave, Dan, etc. I just have two words: Road Trip!

    #39 6 years ago

    And hey, unlike Reciprocal - and you know I love you Big Erhle - my machines are set on free play!

    #40 6 years ago

    You fu$k@d up...you trusted us!

    #41 6 years ago

    Have plans, otherwise I would be in. Have fun!

    #42 6 years ago

    Ok, so maybe the car wash part is made up. But if you're coming, see you tonight!

    #43 6 years ago

    If there was a cheerleader car wash, my existing plans would be ditched.

    #44 6 years ago

    Hey, I know some cheerleaders! Former cheerleaders anyway. They're all around 50 years old, but they can still wash a car!

    #45 6 years ago

    The games are free. I charge for having to open the glass to retrieve a stuck ball, which just happens to occur every game!

    #46 6 years ago

    Would love to make it gents, I am in Chicago unfortunately. Have a blast and hopefully will meet up next time.

    #47 6 years ago

    Anyone else coming? Putting the food on the grill!

    #48 6 years ago

    Thanks for the invite but I cant make it.Had a great time yesterday, see ya around dude.Scott

    #49 6 years ago

    FANTASTIC party! Great company! Fantastic host (and wife) Food, booze and PLENTY of PINBALL! Got to play Avengers LE, Spider-Man, Transformers LE, CSI (Great game!) AND, finally AC/DC LE...I have totally changed my opinion...FANTASTIC game! Sooo much fun we didn't even get to the cigars! Thanks to Nelson for being an outstanding host! PIX TOMORROW!
    (went from 5pm to 12:15!!)

    #50 6 years ago

    Lets see 3:48am and I'm in my room at the Tropicana, Atlantic City listening to a guy fight with his girlfriend next door. Earlier a trip to the soda machine yielded a guy passed out, stretched across the hall with what looked like a baloney sandwich flung on him. Oh, and there's more police sirens outside, joy. I'm so bleary-eyed trying to get back to sleep.

    Yep, I would've rather made the pin party.

    Glad you all had fun guys. Next time around.
