If you haven’t been to the Pacific Pinball Museum recently, or maybe haven’t been there at all, give it a try! They have a groupon going on.


Pacific Pinball League

The Pacific Pinball Museum just announced a new Groupon Deal.  Seven bucks gets you in the door for unlimited play on over 90 games.  $15 was a fair bet for that, but this is a can’t miss at this price.  Jump on it while it lasts!

Wade and Tilt Warning Creating Pinball Games for FAILE

FAILE has hired Wade Krause and Dave Baach of Tilt Warning Customs to create pinball games for FAILE’s DeluxxeFluxx arcade showing at the giant Art Basel art show in Miami this year.

FAILE is a collaboration between Brooklyn artists Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller, and they are HUGE in the art world.  Their recent work with the NYC Ballet helped re-introduce ballet to a new generation that might never have thought about ballet as cool.


I think Wade, Dave and FAILE can do the same thing for pinball.
