    Monopoly replaced at Woodstock's by.......a claw machine. Ughh. Another pin location bites the dust. Woodstock's has had steller pizza, great beer and playable pins for as long as I remember and only two blocks from my house. Now I guess San Diego Brewing Company and High Dive will be fighting for my location quarters. Can't go wrong with either of them, but I'll miss having a pin within stumbling distance of my house.

    No, this was the SDSU one. I've lived within blocks of woodstocks in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo as well.... best pizza I've had outside of the year I lived in Chicago.

    Thoughts: I wish I still lived in San Diego. This sounds like a grand idea and I'm surprised you're not getting more takers. I still come back a couple times a year, but it's tough to devote an entire day to something like this anymore, as I'm a new daddy and usually lookin' after my little guy. Would love to meet up and shoot some silver ball for a couple hours if you're interested.

    Additional Thought: Have you sent an email to Nate Shivers of Coast 2 Coast Pinball? He's in San Diego. http://www.coast2coastpinball.com/

    Stopped by KMB and had a great time w/ their line-up. Took my 6-month-old son and we put some time in on each of their machines. The only issue to report was Godzilla's DMD was stuck on a single screen. Aside from that, games were all a lot of fun.

    Thanks San Diego Pinball Thread!

    Also dropped by to check the Kearny Mesa ones out with my wife the other day. Very fun . I wish I had made it when you still had the AC/DC one cuz I really want to play it.

    I'm closer to Mira Mesa Bowl so I go more frequently to check those out, my wife loves the mini pinball on the Shrek one hehe and I like playing Eight Ball Champ.

    I've got to say you are pretty brave having your machines in both bowling alleys, I tend to see a bunch of unattended kids with the parents bowling that don't pay much respect to the arcades/pinballs. Last time I was there I had to stop a bunch of kids cuz they were fighting with each other and playing with the pools cue ball, and once I saw it flying (luckily not towards any pinball) I had to scold them and made them stop :$

    I would have also told their parents!! By the way, nice collection!!

    #129 5 years ago

    Maybe open this up to all of Southern CA like you originally thought? We have all of WI and MN in one thread, works well!

    I had inspired this off the Nashville thread, but maybe one day I'll expand it.

    Quoted from kwiKimart:

    I would have but no adults came to claim their kids in the whole time I was there, it seems they just left them in the arcade with a couple bucks and bowl for hours. Of course that 2 bucks lasts like 5 mins.. so then is when madness happens hehe.

    Thanks! your collection is really awesome too! are you planning on using this (http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/jurassic-park-rules) on your JP?

    I'm still debating if I want to add the BOP2 to mine. I would love to but the price is pretty steep considering I already over payed for mine IMO(well not so much, got it for 1.7k but just cuz I really wanted one, I think it should have been in the 1.4k realm).

    Ditto. Me too.

    #133 5 years ago

    I think I'll just wait for actual reviews when the product gets released. I read it's not a one run kinda thing and they'll keep doing them as long as they have demand for it.

    wow surprised it would be worth substituting the old AC/DC Premium for luci one. Do you know if there's interest in walking dead there down the road?

    still semi-protesting the end of pizza there was there huge changes to the new menu or just the end of pizza? we went to the "last supper" of pizza Wednesdays a couple weeks ago / the day before the new menu and haven't made it back around yet.

    There are some cool new items on the menu. The Cookie Bones are very good. There is a decent chance Walking dead will end up down there.

    Anyone here in San Diego that wants to help a future pinsider out?

    I have been corresponding with an obviously nice person near Balboa Park who is trying to get a Bally Spy Hunter pin up and running. He is not currently on this forum yet, but I suspect that one day he will be.

    pm me if you want to help him out.
