Ground Kontrol

Someone suggested on the #railsconf IRC channel that we have some evening festivities at a place called Ground Kontrol, a “barcade” featuring a reasonable-looking selection of beers and an amazing (and nostalgia-inducing, for those of us who grew up in the ’80s) selection of video games and pinball machines. The DJ offerings for this weekend also sound pretty promising to this late 30-something nerd’s ears.

Video and pinball games at Ground Kontrol

Ground Kontrol is located at 511 NW Couch St. (here are directions from the convention center), and will be open until 2:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday night. Anyone interested in checking this place out?
