As Paul Constant writes, “Besides being a fun time-waster, pinball is possibly the best excuse ever produced by man for drinking alone. John John’s Game Room is a boozy arcade featuring a few video games and some sweet pinball to keep your drinking problem company.” And as Gillian Anderson writes, “The cacophonous Pinball Museum in the International District offers more than 35 machines from the 1960s onward. You pay to get in, and then all the games are on free-play!” Go forth and don’t tilt. (John John’s Game Room, 1351 E Olive Way, 696-1613, 4 pm–1 am, 21+; Pinball Museum, 508 Maynard Ave S, 623-0759, 11 am–5 pm, $10, all ages)
