  • What a weird weekend

    What a weird weekend

    We just finished our sixth event of the month Saturday night and then some stuff came to light Sunday morning. Almost all of you reached out yesterday and I very much appreciate it. The Arcade / Pinball / Coin Op community is small and very much connected. While we as operators and owners have our differences and have different approaches to providing our brand of amusement to the community, we are all very much on the same team. An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us.

    As we enter the “Find Out” phase it is my hope that nothing else stupid happens. The damage has been done and the process will run its course. We pulled all of our equipment yesterday and severed ties.

    We got into this because we love sharing our passion for pinball with all of you, the community. Every single operator in town is killing themselves to provide the best experience possible for you the player. Most of us are doing this in addition to working full time jobs, because we are passionate (and maybe a bit addicted) to bringing the gaming experience to the end user.

    Support your Local Operator. Support your local Arcade Bar. Support the locations that bring games into your neighborhood.

  • Debuting our Two Barrel Selects from Dancing Goat!

    Debuting our Two Barrel Selects from Dancing Goat!

    Enjoy Rye Whiskey aged 8 years, and then rested in barrels that previously contained Wisconsin Honey. The result is a Cask Strength Rye with a touch of sweetness.

    We were lucky enough to secure two sister barrels, one for Craft Beer Pinball and one for the Blue Moon Bar. Same Liquid, Same Barrel Treatment, but different barrels placed in different locations at the distillery, creating two unique but complementary Whiskeys. The Blue Moon Barrel is smoother, while Craft beer has a stronger rye burn up front with a bit more sweetness on the finish. Both will be available on site to sample as well as available to order neat pours or a cocktail or two. Bottles will also be available to purchase for your home cocktailing. We think this may be the first Pinball Whiskey in existence!

    Blue Moon Bar & Grill is currently doing Neat Pours of the Barrel Selects as well as two cocktails so be sure to stop in and give them both a sample.

    🥃 Two Cocktails! Visit Blue Moon! 🥃

    Gold Rush ~ Blue Moon Select, honey simple syrup, lemon juice, garnished with lemon twist

    Lazarus ~ Craft Beer Pinball, ginger beer press, bitters, cinnamon, honey simple syrup, garnished with cinnamon dusted orange
