Just a quick note to share that today the famous Buffalo, New York pinball location / billiards hall Pocketeer Billiards broke ground on a big expansion that will supposedly enable it to double its number of pinball machines, to around 180! I've somehow actually never been to Pocketeer, but once this expansion is done I'm definitely going to head on up there.
On a related note, one of my favorite New Jersey arcades, the Silverball Museum in Asbury Park, recently opened an expansion as well. I'm planning on heading down there this fall to check it out. I love seeing these locations expanding!
