We’ve got a fun weekend lined up for you arcade-lovers at the end of the month:
aUFO Halloween Party!
Date: Friday, Oct. 31
To kick off Halloween this year, which amazingly falls on a Friday, we thought there would be no better way to spend a little time and a few quarters than to play some games. Bring your costumes, let us give you some candy, and play special “Halloween” themed arcade titles for the classically low price of 25 cents.
Date: Saturday, Nov. 1st
After recovering from all of that Halloween FUN, we’re going to be back at opening to start prepping for our first tournament. This is what you’ve been waiting for, fellas. Come make history with us at Arcade UFO’s very first tournament.
