Cameraman and I heading there tomorrow.

Heard there's loads of pinball in this city. Marked "Ground Kontrol" on my Google Maps, wondering if there's anyplace else we should make a point to see?

Also if any local pinballers want a cameo on our show let us know, we'll be filming the event.

While not pinball, hit up Voodoo Doughnuts for a snack.

C Bar has great games and there is a joint across the street too!

You might want to check out Quarterworld. It's about 15-20 minutes from the airport in SE Portland. I believe they have 31 machines there. I haven't been yet but I've heard good things about it now that they've settled in (the grand opening was a bit rough). And as Fishbeadtwo says, C Bar is pretty great.

Ground Kontrol
Quarter World
C Bar
Blackbird Pizza

Those are some of my favorites when I'm down in Portland.

SOLID list. C-Bar is one of my absolute favorite places to play pinball on the planet.

I would add POP too. I know Greg and Nicole are going to have a booth at PRGE, so best to check the website for hours.

Thanks for all the tips!

Holy cats I smell a lot of pot here. Is it legal or just uber-decriminalized?

legal (oregon, washington, and colorado are all legal).. you can walk into most shops, register your name, and buy it completely legally.
