Last year, Lisa and I went to Long Beach WA after leaving the ham convention in Seaside for our now-traditional trip to the large pinball palace located there. It's only open weekends and holidays 11-5. But it wasn't open at all last year because the shop next door had caught fire a few days earlier and they were closed for repairs. I called them last weekend to confirm that they did in fact reopen. So the bottle of quarters is stashed in my van as we make our plans to maximize pinball playing time on Sunday. Unless Lisa's foot isn't up to standing, of course, although it appears to be getting better. She didn't have to use the electric buggy when we went the grocery store yesterday, for instance.
