Bopped on down to the arts district near Little Tokyo to check out the new Barcade (bar-arcade hybrid) called Eighty Two. In what used to be a little used Japanese language bookstore, a rad as heck arcade now exists!
When I went in the afternoon, there were a lot of people there, hanging out, being young and playing games. It was kind of a shock to see an arcade with, you know, people in it.
The selection of games was good, evenly divided between video games and pinball which suits me just fine. As far as pinball goes they could have a few more classics like Black Knight 2000 and Tales of the Arabian nights, but still room to grow.
