Did you have a list of those arcades in Pittsburgh on your website? I
couldn't find them.
I grew up in Pittsburgh with my parents taking us kids to the arcades,
hanging out in arcades at night as a teenager, and so on.
Maybe Dave and Busters qualifies as an arcade --- but I like the the old
school retro games myself. (of which they have a few)

Hey, btw, I'm glad to see some of the various initiatives that you
run/are involved with in Pittsburgh. Like the robotics club, vintage
computer stuff, etc etc. Good job.
