Of American Ties and Adventure

So as I sit here, like I always do, I will be watching The King of Kong for the 1st time. "But Dave, no one gives a shit" you say. I agree, watching the movie is kinda pointliss in this story. What this is really about is the fact that I will be heading up to "Funspot" in New Hampshire tomorrow. "Funspot, what's that?" you say to yourself again for some reason after only hearing about it once. Why no one thats actually saying any of these things to themselves, it's the world's largest arcade. I KNOW! THEY STILL HAVE ARCADES! Well they do and this one is pretty big. How is this connected to King of Kong? Well they filmed some of it there, and it is also where Billy Mitchell played the world's 1st perfect game of Pac-man. It is also where Steve Wiebe got the record for Donkey Kong.
 
I think I'll take some pics and junk and when I return, I will write a longer (probably not) blog post about the experience.
 
Has anyone here in the NE been there before? I went many years ago, but I forgot it all.

I had the fortune to randomly be taken there with my GF and some of her friends on a trip to NH. I had the misfortune of being the only guy, and all they wanted to do was play candlestick bowling. And I was like "but its a fucking arcade MUSEUM! That i can PLAY!".  I wanted to explore and take pics and do a good blog post. But nooooo.
 So in short, fuck those bitches. Want to go back, but its was a crappy 9 hour drive, and New Hampshire kind of annoys me.

@Mrnitropb: What the fuck is wrong with them. You can bowl anywhere. You could have played like any arcade game ever. 
 
If only you GF was cool :P jk jk
 
It's going to be 3 both ways for me.
