I'm at "The Garage" in Philly. They have Metallica Pro and AC/DC Pro. Both are pretty dirty but play okay. Sound is turned down to the point where you can't hear them. The Metallica is super wobbily with a sensitive tilt. They also have skee ball which is awesome. That's my report!

Music pins with the volume turned down. Just seems wrong.

Been there, and I would give about the same review, if you can get everyone to take their beers and jackets off of the machines.

Really wish a nice pin location would pop up in philly proper, but i think philly has weird coin op laws, dont quote me on that tho.

Who's this "ROB" who has all the high scores on AC/DC there?

That was my first time at The Garage. Cool bar. They really need to clean those pins...it amazed me how dirty the playfields were for their age. Guess that is the hard bar life of a pin. They also need to crank up the volume.

I wouldn't hold your breath. I'm very friendly with most of the bartenders there, and a couple months back I asked if they'd be okay with me leaving some notes behind for the operator on stuff that should be fixed. The said sure, and they'd definitely pass it along. Short list, nothing too picky. At the time, the ACDC had a busted right flipper, and I included a few other things as well.

Came back two weeks later, flipper was fixed, but nothing else had been touched.
