    Quoted from dannunz:

    WOW 33 different vendors so far are coming to Pintastic 2017!!
    Go here https://pintasticnewengland.com/links-2/ to see the amazing line up of vendors that are coming to Pintastic 2017 so far. Room is getting very tight and we still have 2 months till show time.

    How about playfield glass vendors? Missed out in 2015 and Allentown pieces had a logo on them that I didn't care for.

    And updates on the beer wenches please , I'm not opposed to skating above PG 13 pics either

    Mayfair will be set up in full force. If you are looking for a specific glass contact them and they will bring it.

    I'm still working on the beer girls. They are not wenches be nice please.

    #404 6 months ago

    Um, "Beer Girls" are daughters of Dad's like some of us.

    The true meaning of "Wench" is a "young girl", "Bar Maid" etc, nothing offensive. So in theory the girls working at say, Tilted Kilt could be described as "Wenches" in old world English.

    And he was asking about pf glass being available, not BG's...Will there be a vender selling pf glass?

    ^ this . Although Steve from Mayfair only brings some of his glasses to the show I'd be more inclined to track down Shay or Webb first.

    #407 6 months ago

    "Ardvark" (Allan Davidson) who sets up in the vendor hall, usually has play field glass. However, it's best to call him ahead of time to confirm if he has any in stock.

    Beer girls are not looking good at this time. If anyone has any leads send me a PM. Thanks

    #409 6 months ago

    Would people be interested in standard size tempered glass brand new .. I can bring some but don't wanna cart it around .. it would be for sale at the temple of wow ... let me know if you have interest...

    #410 6 months ago

    I think I have about 20 sheets of glass left. I planned on keeping it for my own use, but I'm starting to use more invisiglass. PM me if you want some.

    Lots to do at Pintastic other than pinball! If your family gets sick of playing pinball all day well they can lay out on the beach and take a dip in this naturally fed lake that's connected to the hotel.

    Re Beer Girls: I forwarded our first applicant's contact info to the person hiring . She's willing to bring us beers and she's not 250 with Leprosy , so we got that going for us .

    I like your determination. How should the beer girl work? Will she be taking orders and bringing us beer while we play pinball?

    #429 6 months ago

    Beer girls doesn't really sound like top priority. Massage girls? Is this a pinball show or casino?
    I personally don't need a ''girl'' serving me a beer or a massage, do you want to have private side room with velvet curtain next?

    If that's how you get your rocks off, so be it but the whole concept borders on unecessary stupidity.
    My daughter has just started to get into pinball, my wife wants to go to this show, see how it's not really sounding like a family friendly event?

    I understand trying to appeal to the guys without wives (and apparently even those with wives..) and you can't appeal to everyone, but why not see if people in this thread have a willing wife or girlfriend to serve beers to thirsty pinballers? See how that flies.

    This is a great show, Gabe is a great dude, and I like the adjustments but this is sounding like a bunch of horny trolls.

    Flame away, don't really care.

    #430 6 months ago

    If they don't hire me as a beer girl, I don't really care. I married my own beer girl, and I'll be bringing her.

    Another bump for this thread and a fantastic show!

    #431 6 months ago

    I did not suggest beer girls initially Gabe did. I'd like a nice girl serving beers like a cocktail waitress. Did you even read the Ad posted that clearly stated family Environment?

    #432 6 months ago

    Well this is why I'm rethinking the concept of a beer girl. What will she actually do? I was thinking she could have samples of Rapscallion at the beer counter but I don't want it to be weired.

    #433 6 months ago
    Quoted from dannunz:

    I like your determination. How should the beer girl work? Will she be taking orders and bringing us beer while we play pinball?

    It's your show , I only stepped up to fill a void in your initial outline. The girl or girls you hire will be dressed PG13 not like strippers so they won't offend women or children or parents. Bringing cold craft beer as you play is a nice touch. I'm just trying to help the show . I can't really drink much beer after my cancer surgery, I'm putting in my free time and effort for others. I can easily pull the ad if necessary.

    #434 6 months ago

    Don't beer companies typically employ their own "brand ambassadors" to attend events like these and hand out samples? If you really want a beer girl, the companies would be the people to ask.

    Rapscallion does not do that kind of promotions they are a small brewery. Sounds like it's not going to work. But I will contact them and see if they have any ideas.

    Maybe Yeungling and Sam Adams do but I think for a small outfit with craft beer they may not. But I could be mistaken and if you're correct, this would alleviate some uncertainties .

    #438 6 months ago

    I mention what do clowns, kiddie rides, and face painting have to do with a pinball show ! I'm told the show wants to get kids into the hobby. I accept Gabe's response because it's his show and I do like kids playing pinball. Then when Gabe brings in craft beer and beer girls are discussed some of the people with children are up in arms SMH

    Massage girls, that's borderline but whom am I to judge .

    Everyone gets offended by everything these days, I'm surprised they have not censored all the T&A on the games yet (I'm sure it's in the works in someone's head). Last year I went to my best friend's 40th bday party wearing a "F it, let's Drink" Chive t-shirt. Approx two hours in, his father in law storms up to me and demands I remove it immediately as it's offensive to the "women"...If it was any other venue I would have told him to GFY, but I obliged (As my buddy tried to kick him out lol). My wife asked me why I changed, then wanted to put the shirt on herself lol.

    So yeah, Beer girls usually come as part of a promotion team, so I doubt we will see any, but if they were there and I was with my wife and daughter, my wife would not be offended..hell, she picked my buddies and I up from an all day open bar/buffet rager at Desires (Gentleman's club) once (Those days are long gone, it was some time ago)

    O, btw I freaken HATE clowns(with a passion), but I won't be offended if I see them at the show

    I'm not everyone, and I'm not offended by it, so you misconstrue the word ''offended'' with what I was trying to make people aware of. Some people don't need or want to go to gentleman's clubs, or have wives that are down for picking them up at one, just as some people don't hate clowns with a passion.
    My point was, what are we really trying to promote here? A family show or something else? Offended has nothing to do with it, it's about taking a step back and thinking about everyone and not just yourself because you want it to be.
    Gabe knows he can do what he wants, it's his canvas, I'm just one voice.

    I was generalizing society as a whole, not directing anything at you. And yes, everyone is different, if we weren't, this would be one boring as F world.. So yes, some people do live by the the Bible, some consort with unsavory characters and live life on the edge, while some are somewhere in the middle. (And as a public event, they will all be there) Point taken(without repeating everything you typed)... O, and F clowns

    #442 6 months ago
    Quoted from 1974DeltaQueen:

    Sh1t not good. Flyers at local colleges maybe? Some girls stay in the area between semesters .

    I've already encouraged some male and female college students to attend *as players*. This whole creepy and stereotypical obsession with "beer girls" makes me rethink that decision.

    If that's what some people really want, I suggest they find some shady place to get lunch. No reason for everyone to ultimately pay (in ticket prices) for something that a (hopefully large) segment of the attendees has no interest in supporting.

    Pintastic has always been family oriented by day and adult oriented after 8pm. If the beer girls are their it will be after 8pm

    Ticket prices are not going up. This is something that will be added If I see it's feesable. It's not going to be creepy at all. They would only be handing out samples of beer and taking pictures with people. It's all in good clean fun.
