the weather is as gorgeous as it is today.
We're kicking off the festivities at Toad Hall with Pete & Richard.
Happy Pride, everyone!
We had a really nice visit, before having to get him back to catch his
flight. We went to Max's in Burlingame.
Todd was my "Art School Buddy" when we were both at DeAnza, and then
at the San Francisco Art Institute. We formed a great friendship
during those years. We had a lot of classes together, and even worked
with each other at the school's computer lab.
Todd and his family live in Monterey now, so we don't see each other
as often as we used to, but when we do, we always have such a great
time catching up.
That was SO much fun!!
Here's a little information on the Pinball Hall of Fame from their website:
The Pinball Hall of Fame is an attempt by the members of the Las Vegas Pinball Collectors Club to house and display the world's largest pinball collection, open to the public. A not-for-profit corporation was established to further this cause. The games belong to one club member (Tim Arnold), and range from 1950s up to 1990s pinball machines. Since it is a non-profit museum, older games from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s are the prevelant, as this was the 'heyday' of pinball. There are no 'ticket spitters' here (aka kiddie casinos or redemption). It's all pure pinball (and a few arcade novelty games) from the past. And since it's a non-profit, excess revenues go to non-denominational charities.
What a great place!
