At funspot today I showed the management the post I put up in March during the last visit. They liked it so much a manager gave me a whole handful of tokens, must have been worth $5 or more!

So be aware that tokens did pass hands today and judge accordingly!

In NH conservatives aren't the silent type

to Funspot. Today’s posts will be mostly scheduled so approval of comments might be slow. I don’t know if they have wi-fi but I don’t know if I really want to spend time posting from there.

If you want to see my post about Funspot, the largest arcade in the world it is here.

Update: My son and his young lady classmate are off playing games and my hands are a little sore from 2 hours + of pinball so taking a break to use the Wi-fi and blog a little to give em a rest.

My youngest and myself are both Pinball fanatics so on the occasion of his rising grades we took a trip up to Funspot with his friend Kevin and DaHospitalityGuy. A young lady who was to also come with us begged off due to sickness.

The drive itself in a couple of hours as it is located in central NH’s Lake’s Region. The entire area is rather beautiful although each time I visit it seem to be developed just a little bit more.

There are a series of photos that will show up in the Gallery below but there was one sight that caught me totally by surprise when we pulled up, so much so that everyone had to wait for me while I waited for the sign to refresh to the same spot:

In NH conservatives aren't the silent type

Being from Massachusetts I was a little surprised but much less so after I had the great pleasure of meeting the founder:

When you have an arcade that has been in business since 1952 and at it’s present location since 1964 customers are unlikely to make choices based on your political leanings, particularly when you provide a good product at a great price. Particularly when you offer free tables and space for Birthday parties.

We didn’t confine our interviews to management…

UPDATE: His name is Dylan not Ian my bad there.

The food is pretty good, but if you want something more substantial there is no shortage of restaurants nearby, but they don’t give you the free tokens that you earn for buying a Pizza.

There are more interviews, and a photo gallery below the jump
