Well now’s your chance! Because Seattle’s very own Monday Night Pinball League (also on facebook!) is starting its new Spring season on February 12th and you’ve got until Jan 22 to sign up for our team, the Raygun Magic Saves. Cool graphics and jackets pending but I’m sure we’ll get that all worked out any day now.

Seattle’s Monday Night Pinball is a welcoming, coed, 21+ featuring 22 teams playing weekly games for ten weeks. It’s a great way to have fun, meet people and get to see, and try out, all of Seattle’s many pin spots. I mean, just look at all these happy healthy people!

You know… now that I think about, I’m pretty sure those guys kicked our asses… but that’s neither here nor there because a good time was had by all along the way!

If you’ve interested in checking out the MPL before joining, you’re welcome to come out for any of our home matches, every other Monday from February through April. The league’ll announce exact dates on Jan 29th and I’ll add them to our very own Special Events Page when they do so you can come check out all of this sweet team on team pinball action for yourself!

And if you’re not interested in league but just want to give our house pins a spin, come on by any day of the week, noon to 11pm (noon to 1am on Fridays and Saturdays!). We’ve got eight unique pinball machines for you to play, including newcomer (to us), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

and house favorite, Ghostbusters!

Plus, we’ve got a rotating batch of retro arcade cabinets featuring retro classics, a full cabinet shooter and two different four players! So come on down and check us out. You’ll be glad you did!

For us, the New Year begins on Labor Day. Labor Day is when everything shifts for us; the weather finally cools back down, the foot traffic shifts from visiting tourists to returning students, key members of staff inevitably move on so new staff step in, and both of my children return to school, necessitating and facilitating changes to my personal work schedule which affects everything else. All as we clean up and recover from our personal weeklong New Years Celebration, PAX.

And with every new year, comes changes. The two biggest for us so far this year are taps and our schedule.

Yes, that’s right. I just said TAPS! With custom D20 tap heads no less!

Actual D20 taps in their natural habitat.

Thanks to an unprecedented collaboration between ourselves, Maeloc Cider, Fremont Brewing & the Seattle Indies, we were able to get our initial tap system fully installed, tested and operational just before PAX and now it’s ready for you try out too.

We’re currently offering our ever popular Strawberry Cider, Fremont’s amazing seasonal Lush IPA and Odin’s Gift Amber on tap and will be rotating through a range of seasonals, many of which will be selected by you through our tip wars voting system.

Our Tips Wars! Now featuring... Your Mom!

Draughts are $6 and pitchers $15. We look forward to serving you.

Additionally, after seeing how many people were trying to get in early every day to get some of our great espresso now that Stumptown has closed, we’re going to be opening every day at noon and staying open until 11pm, 1am on Fridays and Saturdays, making us a great stop for all your lunchtime and afternoon coffee needs.

So come on by, get yourself a drink, play some pinball, and check out some of our events. You’ll be delighted that you did.

Say, speaking of pinball, have you tried our our BRAND NEW Ghostbusters machine yet? It screams!
