Quoted from LTG:

I've seen this time and time again. Raise rent until an established tenant leaves. And then stands empty.
They don't seem to care. Higher rent or nothing.
LTG : )

Quoted from LitzDoc:

I agree. Raising the rent was a stupid move. It feels good in the moment, to exert your power, but that feeling is fleeting. The long term consequences are not considered. It's all about the ego blinding logic and reality. People can't look into the future more than a day or two. Incredibly short sighted.

Bummer Post Alert

Was driving through Pelham over the weekend. It's like it was never even there

That's heartbreaking

I almost want to drive up there just to look through the door. Hope the landlord is happy he won the negotiations...

Is there anything in the PWA space? Is it rented?

The Superman pizza place is gone too?

Word is the trampoline place is opening in April and is hiring now. I helped Sarah move some of the last stuff out, it was not a sight I wanted to ever see. I used to live within 2 miles of the biggest 2 arcades on the east coast (PWA and Funspot when I am at my camp) and now I have to wait for summer to go to Funspot. Unfortunately, the pins at Funspot are crap.

#158 39 days ago

the last few time I had been to Funspot I thought the pins were pretty ok, a couple had more serious issues but most the gameplay was pretty good for what the machine was. I think I had my best game ever on #superman the other Atari pins I was getting the hang of. the classic Bally's were great I thought

I'll admit the place could use a row of Jersey Jack tables and/or Sterns

I'm still depressed she closed the doors. Completely understandable but what a loss for us all.

Quoted from PinballWizardArc:

The Pinball Wizard Arcade will be closing their doors on Sunday April 30, 2017 at 8pm.

Thank you,
Sarah
Owner, Pinball Wizard Arcade

Ironically that is the date of my birthday. Sorry to hear that and wishing all the best in the future.

I stopped playing in league when the PWA shut down. Its hard to find a location with such a selection. The only thing missing was a splash of EMs. Sarah said they simply not profitable. No one played them.

#165 38 days ago

While its sad that PWA closed down the local scene for pinball has been getting better by the day. Boston has several new locations to play and the SNHPC has been a welcome addition to the NH scene. here are a few suggestions to check out- all of them are host sites for NEPL too. Flat Top Johnny's (Cambridge), A4Cade (Cambridge), Down the Road Beer company (Everett), Town line bowling (Malden), Trina's starlight lounge (Amesbury), Southern NH Pinball club- (Nashua). there are also several private sites that have opened up to hosting the league.

Went to where Pinball Arcade was on Saturday and the place looks fun. It's just WAYYYY open. Front staff had fond memories of the arcade and let me take these so thanks. This was like 15min right after they opened so it's dead empty. It's hard to picture "oh that is where Tron is" and "oh that is where the bathroom is and it led to the arcade games and the old Bally, etc". This is a video of the place: https://www.facebook.com/derek.karamanian/videos/10160298476150506/

It looks like the trampoline park took over way more space then just the old Pinball Wizard floor space to the way left in the outside parking lot picture.

Quoted from KozMckPinball:

The space they have taken is the same only that they removed all walls, got rid of the back room, and then took over the dead area between Chunkys and Pin Wiz. Suppas is still there and all the businesses except that now there is no more giant paper wall that says "this space for rent". The place is quite massive. I mean imagine Pin Wiz only double the size and a bigger ceiling so you can jump around. It's unrecognizable now. Go back to my previous post and watch the video and compare.
