    Hi!
    Seattle is opening its first Pinball Museum!
    Located at 508 Maynard Ave. S. in the International District (south of downtown Seattle), we have managed to get 13 pinball tables and 3 pachinko games in here so far! We're trying for another five tables so we can claim to have the most pinball machines in a public place in Washington State.
    Grand Opening is TOMORROW! The Big Opening Bash is on Saturday starting at 5:00PM!

    I'm not just a player, I'm a co-founder!

    I'll post up our opening exhibits if anyone would like to see...

    That's just what we've done, lb45! See Fiorella LaGuardia smashing a machine with a big sledgehammer! See Roger Sharpe making the shots that would make pinball legal again! See pinball being enjoyed through the last 80 or so years!

    We're still working on the Pinball Evolution display that shows how the different parts evolved.

    We have old backglasses and tables up on the walls too. Lighting is very good inside.

    It's an all ages place, too, which makes it practically unique for any pinball place.

    Oh, yeah, more than 100 people showed up last night! Hell of an Opening Night, I'll tell you! We had originally intended to close at 8:00, but we saw that at that time all the games were being played and there were close to 40 people inside, so we wound up staying until 9:30 when things had finally tapered off.

    So I'm prepping up the pictures we took and getting them ready for a web album. When I'm done I'll post the URL. Sound good?
