I forgot one
Knoxville, Tn, Old City
Curious Dogs (I forget the name so I looked up hot dogs in old city. it’s a counter service bar/ resturaunt)
While this isn’t the best or most extravagant venue, it has good food, a huge selection of drinks, and a large portion of the space is dedicated to arcade cabinets that were all clean and functioning beautifully. They had an NES playchoice cabinet with castlevania, asteroids with the buttons for controls, another vector graphics game that was impressive but I forgot the name, and, most importantly to me, it is the only place I’d ever played R-TYPE on an original arcade cabinet. I love R-TYPE very much. Everything was 1-quarter-per-play. This experience cannot be beat. The stools they had were perfect height and I was very comfortable sitting at the cabinet. The audio on the original R-TYPE arcade board was coming out from the cabinet beautifully. Something I hope to experience again some day.
Hard to rate out of 10. I want to dock points for skimpy selection of cabinets, but this place was so comfy and one R-TYPE cabinet is all I need for a couple hours of fun.
