This fun retro place in Alameda has over 85 pinball machines all on Free Play with admission ($15, $7.50 for kids under 12). This is a kid-friendly event. You can arrive early and they will love it. For those interested in the history etc. of the museums, and have questions about specific machines, the volunteer docents will give our group a private tour for free. Many of them are collectors themselves.

Afterwards, we will go to Calafia Taqueria nearby (1445 Webster St) and commiserate about the ball that got away and / or take turns bragging about the super shot we made that no one else could make.
Hope this will bring out the East Bay lurkers out there like myself and bring out your fun side mixed with a museumy event.
Most people are trustworthy and we thank those who keep this meetup running smoothly and enjoyably as a shared community. We have found it necessary to remove members who do not show up or cancel less than 4 days ahead two times. If you have problems finding the group, please call or text to find the organizer at the event:
