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

A: Get a copy of Beatles Rock band in the house with the drums and mike.

When I left with the kids to pick up the game at K-Mart the party was winding down, a lot of people (not Rush fans apparently) had left early to see the patriots game and the teens were ready to go.

When I got home and the game was set up, suddenly Joey didn’t have to leave 45 min earlier, Crystal didn’t have to go to her grandmothers for fried chicken (mmmm fried chicken!) Dominic left the blowout and was on base guitar and Kevin whose cough was keeping him away from the party was well enough to come over and play till 10 p.m.

The kids final birthday party was VERY heavily attended and his coffers overflowed. He had said since Late August that this is all he wanted. We told him bluntly it was too expensive, he said what if he only got cash for his birthday and picked it up. We doubted he would get enough and told him to wait till Christmas, however the kid has always been lucky and yesterday was no exception.

I must confess it is cool on steroids.

My review of the game Punch-Out for the Nintendo Wii gamesystem is available at Amazon.com here.

I’ve actually only played the game sparingly but I’m spent MANY hours on the couch watching my son play the game while I was tapping away posts. I’ve seen more of this game than almost any other straight video game out there.
