Games + Beer = Barcade

Where can you find Ms. Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Asteroid, Twilight Zone Pinball, $2 cans of Pabst, and bowls of ramen? Why Miss T's Barcade of course. J and I spent a goofy Saturday night at this Koreatown dive, competing against each other across the Ms. Pac Man screen to gobble dots and escape Inky, Pinky and Sue (J kicked my butt).

80s posters cover the walls, a Lite-Brite guards the door, and the bar is covered in quarters. The crowd was light at 9 pm, and we were able to play every game we wanted without a wait. The friendly bartenders will provide change and games cost only 25-50 cents. A DJ spins in one of the side rooms, and there's plenty of cozy booth seating if you need to chill after losing another game.

Look for the neon Pac-Man ghost in the window
