Galaga gone. Arkanoid in the back room w/ Centipede. SW Ep I pinball out front next to new Blasteroids. Theater of Magic is the 3rd pin.

A couple preteen boys were there w/ their dad. One of the boys checked out Blasteroids & reported back to his dad "it's the sequel to Asteroids!" I corrected him "no, that's Deluxe. This came out in '87 or '88." The kid looked at me like "how dare you speak to me!"

Had to educate him, just doing my job.

A sad note, tomorrow is DeLeo's final day open, closing at 2pm after a 5 yr run. The games go back to Mendota Valley Amusements. None of the plans/expansion mentioned above was ever realized. Honestly, I hadnt seen the owner the last few visits, & I felt service dropped off.

I spoke to my family about dinner there one last time tonight, but unsure if they'll be able to accomodate us, no longer operating at full scale. My wife was never a fan anyway.

Sad. I feel bad only going there twice in my life now. I read on pinside that some Wisconsin operator guy's moving to Minnesota, so there might be a possibility of a pinball hotspot opening.
