YOU ARE A WORTHY OPPONENT.

Modern Pinball NYC OPENS!

ModernPinballMondayMorning

Pretty good traffic for a Monday morning.

Today is the 28th of October 2013, and that means Modern Pinball NYC is now open for business! Today is the soft opening for Steve Epstein and Steve Zahler’s new pinball venture, and it already looks fantastic.

Nick from The Arcade Hunters paid a visit to Modern Pinball NYC a short while before it opened, and got some great video of the place and the preparations for opening day. Check out all of these great looking games in one place!

The first tournament at Modern Pinball NYC will happen on November 16 – 17, 2013 as part of the “Flip Off Hunger” series of charity events that will be happening around the country.

I will certainly be there, because I will be helping to run the tournaments. So, come on out and compete!

By the way, here is one of the owners, Steve Zahler, kicking some serious tail on Addams Family.
