In Los Angeles in 1933, a company called Pacific Amusements invented Contact, the first game with a ball shooting out of a little hole into a “pinball” playing field. In Seattle in 2011, a company called Hilliard’s invented several new and delicious craft beers. Enjoy both inventions at this first-ever pinball rally at Hilliard’s Brewery. Pinball collectors will show off their machines, and it’s rumored that someone is bringing a tricked-out Addams Family game. Play for fun or enter the tournament with a cheap $5 buy-in. (Hilliard’s Brewery, 1550 NW 49th St,, noon–8 pm, free, all ages)
