Retro Gaming is Back

School is back, and let’s face it, everyone is bummed about it. But your teacher’s dirty looks aren’t the only thing to look forward to. “Retro Arcade Night” is back at Arcade Games Sales, and it’s full of all the Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga/Pinball anyone with pent-up academic or employment-related stress could wish for to relieve some of that tension. Feel like running over your boss? Why not run over your opponents in Cruis’n World by Midway? Feel like swinging a golf club at your principal? Why not swing one on Golden Tee Golf by Incredible Technologies? Doing this will not only save you from potential arrests/prison shower soap mishaps, but the games are a lot of fun. Plus, there’s a good chance you’ll get to see Billy Mitchell, star of the documentary The King of Kong. “Retro Arcade Night” takes place Saturday and costs $10 for adults, $5 for kids 12 and under, and includes free gameplay. The event runs from 6:30 to 11:30 p.m. at Arcade Game Sales, located at 829 N. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-270-6949, or visit arcadegamesales.net.
