Anyone from Madison, Wisconsin see this news item? Parched Eagle Brewpub. Anyone familiar with this location?

Didn't someone on pinside have an alien on location there?

#3 1 year ago

That's not a "Madison Pinball" location, which is Hilton's group that has the Alien.

Address of the place actually shows Waunakee. It doesn't show up on Pinball Maps.

lol, hilarious that there is a news artcile on this.

something locked on, main fuse did its job and blew.

No smoke/minor smoke from what I was told. Just smelt of burning. Game will be fixed later today.

All is good.

Lucky the firefighters didn't use axes and foam. Happened twice at my fathers arcade when employee called fire department rather than unplug a game with a malfunctioning score reel coil. Two games destroyed.

I'm in a Slack group that is testing a Google Alert for the word "pinball." It came up on the Slack channel.

Emily Friese also spelled "allowed " incorrectly in her story . Normally I wouldn't mention something like this but spelling is part of her job .

Wait, so this IS a Madison Pinball location? Parched Eagle Brewpub isn't listed on your internet web site.

I wouldn't be too surprised unless Madison, Wisconsin is the new pinball capital of the world for pinball operators

Kind of ironic that "Sparky" is reporting this fire don't you think?

#24 1 year ago

Good thing it wasnt his Alien pin.

I remember when smoke and haze was expected in a bar.

wisconsin is a VERY active pinball state.

Amazing to some, but then again we are only 2 hours from the pinball radiation of the entire world.

Reminds me of a song I heard back in the day -"I wear animal pelts. I eat raw meat. I sleep in a hollow tree."
