Addams Family was out of service while I was there (12/30) and Avatar went down while I was there as well. Shadow was in great condition as was TOM, with LEDs in both and strong flippers. They had a lot of sterns and 2 AC/DC for some reason. Breakshot is just a lame pin, not sure why they have it. Tons of classic arcades all around the perimeter, all worked pretty well. All games were a quarter (1 token) which was the best part. Wish they had more pins though.

The TOM here is one of the best-maintained pins around. LEDs look gorgeous, too.

My go to arcade bar in Chicago. Owners take care of the machines and do rotate in different games. Great beers on tap at reasonable prices.
