Looking for a place for your event or youth group? + store update

Posted in Uncategorized on January 28, 2011 by arcadelegacy

Looking for a place to have your event? The arcade has recently been home to many great events like CONCERTS, COMEDY SHOWS, TOURNAMENTS, BIRTHDAY & BACHELOR PARTIES and soon a CLASSIC GAMING EXPO. If you need a fun and unique venue for your event of any sort, give me a call and I’m sure we can work something out. The arcade can also be rented out for private events.
Any youth pastors looking for a great event for their teens? I will offer a deeply discounted rate to any church that would like to set up an event at the arcade during normal business hours.
Call me (Jesse) at 513-874-8766. Leave a message if I can’t get to the phone and I will get back to you quickly.
