Location Closings

It’s always sad when local businesses close; especially when it’s locations with great pinball line-ups. Two long time businesses have recently announced their imminent closing (both due to lost leases): Full Tilt Ballard, whose last day is January 29th and The Kraken Bar & Lounge, which will close on March 4th. We’re sorry to see them go but hopefully both the businesses and the operators who have games there will find new homes in the near future.
The Kraken’s Still Drunk Sundays pinball tournament will continue until further notice: still-drunk-sundays
