Ground Kontrol to Major Fun

Did it. Watched it die. Waited 2 decades for it to rise from the dead. Did it again.

The future (of the 1980s) is now!

This is the interior of an awesome arcade in Portland called Ground Kontrol. Apparently this is the best arcade remaining in the US; I can believe it. The first floor is a mix of classic and semi-modern video games (Discs of Tron and Bubble Bobble FTW), while the second floor is filled to bursting with an assortment of 28 pinball machines. Oh, and they also serve beer (5-6 taps) and food (or a reasonable substitute anyway). Let the laundry ripen for another week and blow your quarters here. I got my ass kicked in Mortal Kombat and I loved every minute of it.
