We met up at the Pacific Pinball Museum to play pinball for a few hours. We had a great time playing some two-player games, learning new machines together and dropping knowledge on each other when we could. It was very fun, non-competitive play.
Now, Gene is not just a super friendly guy - he's also an extremely talented professional photographer and a contributor to various pinball podcasts. He took a bunch of photos at the PPM, which he said I could post here (check out his site to see a bunch more great pinball photos) and he also recorded a quick interview with me, which appears in this episode of The Pinball Podcast (towards the end).
Anyway, it's nice to have a new Bay Area homie to play some pinball with, so hopefully Gene and I will play some more pinball again soon!
