8-Bit Fun descends upon Downtown...

As a 37 year old I am at the perfect age to remember the good ole days of Atari, Commodore 64 and all the other game consoles that brought us the classic games of my youth. As a kid I was the ultimate 8-Bit hustler, I had no problem playing for quarters against anyone who would try to challenge me at a good game of Mrs. Pacman, Frogger or even QBert. So when I heard that a brand spakin' new arcade was opening up in Downtown my heart started pounding at the prospects of playing all my favorite games again. 

Over the last several months a totally nondescript building on Fremont Street, right smack in the middle of the Entertainment District, has been slowly and meticulously transformed into another awesome destination Downtown. This Friday Insert Coin(s) Classic Arcade Bar and Lounge opens to the world. Insert Coin(s) is the latest in a string of new attractions in Downtown that are making our neighborhood even more livable. 

Stay tuned for my review of Downtowns newest hot spot... Pong anyone?
