Political Cartoon 1307.22

I spent my day off last week strolling around downtown Portland, and spent some time here:

Ground Kontrol

I spent an unseemly amount of my childhood in arcades, and back in the 70’s, that meant pinball machines. Ground Kontrol has dozens of pinball machines and 80’s arcade video games. There’s also a full bar and kitchen, and all the machines have can holders for your beer.  Prices are reasonable: 50 cents a play and $2 PBR’s, so depending on your skill level, you can spend a pleasant couple of hours here for not much money. This is definitely on the ‘must-see’ list of places to take out-of-town visitors.

Also on the ‘must-see’ list is this business just down the street from the arcade:

Hung Far Low
