Good morning and happy 4th of July weekend! We just realized something very special – exactly one year ago on July 2nd, 2020, we opened up our Dumb Records arcade to the world. We haven’t had it open for a full year exactly – since we did have it shut down again for all of December and January this past winter, but this is still one year from when we opened it.
Almost completely coincidentally we are debuting a brand new game today! That game is an original Stern 1982 pinball called “ORBITOR 1.” It is really wacky. Check out a video below. This is one that you are really going to have to just come play in person.
Our arcade is still open along with regular store hours (every day 11:00 am – 6:30 pm). Entry is $5 or free with store purchase of $10 or more. – One more side note: we will be closed this upcoming Sunday for 4th of July!
Downtown music festival season is officially here! One of the major downtown music festivals, Legacy of Giving is kicking off tonight right at 5:00 pm. The music tonight goes all the way until midnight, and then tomorrow it’s an all-day festival going from noon until midnight!
Since our original post about the festival earlier last weekend, they have uploaded the full schedule for Friday and Saturday to the Legacy of Giving facebook page. And as you can see on the poster above, there are too many bands playing for us to even list off here. The headlining acts look to be Enamel, The Longmeyer Band, The Station, and This One’s Pink. There are probably about 50 bands listed on that poster playing throughout the weekend. Update – there are actually 60 bands playing 5 different stages for 10 different charities! The festival also features food trucks, a kids area, a vendor fair, a disc golf tournament, and much much more.
