Pinball Pete’s is a pretty entertaining way to spend an evening. The floor space is split pretty evenly between pool tables and arcade games. Unfortunately, since the rise of the home console has pretty much killed production of new arcade games, you’re stuck with classic games and the occasional Japanese import, the most popular of which is Dance Dance Revolution.
The place seems to be pretty popular with younger residents and freshman college students that are too young to go to any of the area bars. Thusly, you feel a bit ridiculous walking in there if you’re over the age of 20. Nonetheless, if you want to shoot a game of stick and don’t want to go to a bar, this is pretty much the only game in town in East Lansing.
Despite being over the median age for that place, I still happen to find myself strolling in there about once a month or so and always have a good time.
