Where is the best place to play pinball in Melbourne?

number_nine  said about 8 years ago:

hosies tavern, opposite flinders street station, flinders street, near the corner of elizabeth.

they also have ping pong.

ChrisBrimstone  said about 8 years ago:

why didn't i ask this before I went to Melbourne?

marz102  said about 8 years ago:

I saw someone get kicked out of hosies on friday night. He was a middle aged pissed bloke who punched a bin after he was tossed out onto Elizabeth St. The only words I could understand in his vocab was ''Fuck You Cunt!!''.
I later remembered something a mate of mine had told me. He said.... ''Marz don't ever go into hosies. It's a titty bar for criminals''.
My mate may or may not be a huge bogan with a love for metal.

number_nine  said about 8 years ago:

i was asked politetly to leave on friday.

and i didn't punch the rubbish bin, i kicked the shit out of it.

i collected a total of 7 ping pong balls this night.

still lurking, occasionally.

sideshow  said 19 days ago:

IFPA-endorsed pinball tournament in Fitzroy tomorrow night. Details

stirfry  said 3 days ago:

serious question - how/when/why did those Jesus is the Way things start popping up everywhere in pinball? Who put them there? I thought it was a Williams thing, but I played World Cup 94 (Bally) yesterday and it was on there as well.
Was it the death rattle of pinball from the emergence of pokies that made the companies think there was a potential market for Christians to play pinball? Even religion couldn't save those pinball companies in the end...
