Usually Ground Kontrol's free play night—where five bucks gets you in the door, and then you can play as many games as you want for free—only goes down on the last Wednesday of the month. But tonight? Bonus! The press release:
From 5:30PM until close tonight, you can play all the pinball and video games you want for five measly dollars! Master the Picard Maneuver on Star Trek: The Next Generation pinball, smash the top score on Tetris, all guilt free!
At 8pm, DJ Ken Dirtnap plays punk, garage, hardcore, power pop, new wave, etc. from the '70s-'00s!
What: "Bonus Round" Free-Play Party
Where: Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade, 511 NW Couch St. in Old Town
When: 5:30PM-2:30AM tonight
I mastered the Picard Maneuver once, but my girlfriend just said it "ruined the mood." Pfft. Anyway, now you now, and also, yes, I have used the above image before, and no, I don't care that I'm using it again, because I WILL NEVER GET SICK OF IT.
