It’s well-known that The Creek and the Cave has an awesome pinball machine collection downstairs. I, myself, have played them and had a great time (Star Trek is my fave, what can I say). And with a great pinball machine collection comes great responsibility, so behold—The Creek and The Cave’s Summer Pinball Tournament!
The actual tournament is Sunday June 22nd, but registration/sign up actually begins this Sunday, June 15, at the restaurant. It will cost you $10 if you sign up in advance, but if you show up on the date of the tournament, it’s $15. That day, show up by noon to sign in and the games start at 12:30 p.m.
So what do you win besides having an awesome time? First, second, third, and fourth places get cash prizes. There will be double elimination. Additionally, Heineken will be there with beer between 3 and 4 p.m.
The first ever pinball tournament in Queens was held here at The Creek and the Cave back in February—here’s a post by Amusing the Zillion just before that competition.
Let’s hear it for pinball—cooler than Flappy Bird.
