    That Uncle Fatty's place is HUGE. I probably won't ever go there but that's a pretty cool idea if they had more than pinball. I had no idea Headquarters was there or what it was.

    I'm pretty fucking awesome at all of those games, except pool. Pool I'm good somewhere between 3 and 4 beers, never before or after. I also own worlds in ping pong

    That's really the only game you need to play. My personal favorite.

    I like Emporium infinitely more than Headquarters (even tho HQ plays wrestling on the TVs).

    Emporium seems more like an arcade that has a bar whereas HQ a bar with arcade machines if that makes sense.

    I haven't been to Emporium, but from what I've heard that makes a lot of sense. Seeing as 1 charges you for games, while the other doesn't but gouges you on the drinks, it seems like a good assessment.

    I've been for HQ once. Played Blitz and drank some 11% IPA that very good.

    I went to Emporium on Friday. Place kind of sucks. I don't think I'd ever go back.

    Got schooled by some chick at Street Fighter II. I don't like how they have the button system that isn't flush. I got to Goro in Mortal Kombat but couldn't beat him. I have the high score at Metallica pinball. Also drank a few gin and tonics.

    Are the games free at Emporium?

    Also, we stopped by Logan Arcade after reading a friend rave about it on FB. Turns it was a special friends & family party only that day.

    I lasted 3 hours on $10 Saturday. All you have to do is kick ass at Dig-Dug.

    Nope, you have to stand up and the joystick is kinda bummy.

    Place sounds awesome. If it's a less turded-up version of D&B, I could see it doing well
