If you grew up in the 1980s, chances are you’ve played your share of arcade games —hanging in the local arcade, scrounging for quarters, and enjoying countless hours trying to beat Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and Space Invaders. 

Before you brush those wonderful memories aside, consider stopping out to Ted’s Beerhall where you can enjoy all those nostalgic classic games now as a grown up. 

Ted’s is opening their former wine bar to Double Dragon arcade games. The local partnership came about after Double Dragon Arcade closed its doors after months of struggle due to the pandemic. By coming together, it supports both parties and more importantly keeps money in the community. 

The Beercade is now open and folks will be able to play arcade games while enjoying food and beverages from the Beerhall’s recently updated menu. 

Capacity is at 25 people and there is a $5 cover charge to play the games. 

Masks must be worn while playing and games are to be wiped down after playing. You may have grown up, but your inner child hasn’t. Head out to Ted’s soon!
