    Hey All!

    we are only about 2.5 months away from TPF 2020! Just got confirmed we will have a large Suite at Embassy Suites, so I'm happy to announce we will be doing a room party with pinballs, Drinks and food at TPF this year like we did at Expo and several other shows! More info to come but we will have 3-6 Games, Drinks, Food and fun! All will be welcome!

    Just booked my flight and room. This will be my first time going to TPF, really looking forward to the event and meeting new people!

    It doesn’t appear I’ll be going this year, which really bums me out, particularly when reading this...as it sounds like a blast.

    Me and the wife will be there. Already counting down the days until the fun begins.

    Unacceptable

    I'm 75% sure I'll be there. Still working out travel plans, and whether adding a leg onto my flight will be worth it. (Luckily, I will NOT need a hotel room, as I have friends in the area..)

    #7 4 months ago

    pinballinreno and pinballgoddess will be there.

    Dont lose her badge this time lol.

    #8 4 months ago

    Did you say beer?

    #15 4 months ago

    Wonder if I can talk JJ into going out for a steak instead of that nasty stuff he always post pictures of

    For you! Of Course.
    In Other News, we will have a corner of the room dedicated to some old guy named Bryan yelling at people to get off his lawn! For $20 he will make your child cry!

    Every year my first stop off the plane every year is Hard 8! I normally post up about it and a bunch of people meet up. Its a great way to start out the weekend.

    Have you guys considered going to Hutchins BBQ instead of Hard 8?

    Its right up the street, like 10 mins away. Locals rate it better.

    I think its better and way closer to the Embassy Suites.

    I went there last year, its similar to Hard 8, but the food is way better.

    Check out the ratings and location.

    #23 4 months ago

    Hutchins is tasty! We hit that place last year.

    #24 4 months ago

    So, just to clarify, we no longer do a Fri afternoon meet-up at Wild Pitch bar n grill next to the hotel? Correct?

    #25 4 months ago

    Another infamous JJ Suite? ......interesting ...... I’ll make sure to “drop by”......

    #26 4 months ago

    There are a ton of good places to eat at the star across the tollway.

    I am a local, and yes, https://hutchinsbbq.com/ is MUCH better.

    I hear the show has required you to wear only soft soled shoes such as mockasans to avoid donkey kicking doors

    As a local as well, I will also confirm that Hutchins BBQ is better than Hard 8. Not that Hard 8 is terrible but Hutchins definitely has the better BBQ.

    #33 4 months ago

    First-year attending and it'll be nice to meet some new pinheads. So, Count me in.

    #34 3 months ago

    This will be my first time as a pin owner and doing the whole weekend instead of just coming to play for a few hours. Looking forward to meeting everyone. 99% chance I’ll be wearing tie dye.
