Arcade Fever!

This is a multi-group meetup. Please do not double RSVP.

Due to popular interest, we're running this event again. If you missed it over the summer, this is your chance!

If you grew up in the 80's and 90's, the video arcade was probably a big part of your childhood. There wasn't quite a feeling such as playing Defender in a dark, dungy room while listening to awful hair bands of the day.

While the classic arcade is now a mere artifact of another age, there are places like The Pinball Wizard Arcade in Pelham, NH which try to remind us of these good old days. They have over 200 classic videogames, 70 pinball games, Skeeball and all the fun stuff you used to play with as a kid.

Come join the C&C crew as we plug in and get our nostalgia on to play all those games that we couldn't beat as a kid. Maybe if you're good, you can collect enough skeeball tickets to win that clock radio you always wanted! :)

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

  • This place is about 40 minutes north of Boston. Here's a link to Google Maps. We'll be carpooling for those that need a ride... just let us know in your RSVP. If there's interest, we can meet up at Oak Grove for the subway peeps. The arcade is in the corner of a mini-mall... be sure to look for the signs as they are not completely obvious :)
  • We'll meet at the front door of the arcade at around noon for about 10-15 minutes. If you are running late, come in and find us!
  • After a couple hours of gaming, we will venture out to a nearby restaurant to get something to eat, or watch a movie at Chunky's, which is just around the corner.

    Alright, it doesn't look too bad, and it's supposed to switch to rain later, so I'm still going.

    My car is bad in the snow, and it's already beginning to accumulate on my sloped driveway. I'll check on it again in about 30 minutes, but it's not looking promising. I'll be very disappointed if I have to cancel.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
