Pinball in Japan?

This was originally posted on as part of my very first blog. Resurrecting here as a means of archiving/remembering the past.

Dawn and I went to Santa Cruz to play Pinball. It’s not the closest place to play I’m sure. If anyone knows of a closer place with a number of good tables, please let me know - especially if they have a good Addams Family or Creature from the Black Lagoon.

Anyway, it was great. We goofed around, played pinball, ate corndogs and artichoke hearts, and drove up Highway 1 to see my buddy Matt. He’s moving to Japan.

I’m not really sure how I feel about that. I’ll just say that I wish him luck and he should seriously consider coming back to the United States. But, only after he buys me something really cool - like a phone the size of my thumbnail.

The Austin Powers pinball machine is good. Matt is good. The salmon he made for us was good. Later.
