Back in December, I went down to Boston for a few days to attend the 30th birthday party of my good friend Liz Prince. When I got to town, Liz told me she knew a good place to go play pinball. Did I want to go? Yes, yes I did. So we got into the car and drove over to Lanes and Games, in Cambridge. Here's Claire and Liz in front of their billboard:
I gotta say, when I heard this place was a bowling alley, I didn't expect much. We have a Lanes and Games in White River Junction, and the machines there work, but aren't that great. I was pleasantly surprised therefore when I got into the arcade room and found that it had EIGHT machines, all of which were in PERFECT working order.
From left to right: Twilight Zone, Scared Stiff, Addams Family, Tron, Iron Man, Family Guy, Spider Man, Sopranos. What a collection! They were a little pricey, but worth every token. I put in a little time on Tron and a LOT on Twilight Zone, which I finally started to get the hang of by the end.
Anyway, if you live in the Boston area, I HIGHLY recommend this place! You can walk there from the Alewife stop on the red line, which is right around the corner. Tell 'em Drop Target sent you!
