Over the Weekend: The epic battle that is Father's Day
By Jonathan McNamara
Maybe you showed Dad how much you care by taking him to brunch. For the players at Ballers Arena, ham and eggs weren't going to cut it. They showed Dad their love by shooting him in the face!
Ballers Arena, an indoor paint ball facility, let Dads play for free on Father's day giving them ample opportunities to stick it to junior for not mowing the lawn.
Coin-operated fun was had by all this weekend courtesy of the Zap! Vintage Video Games exhibit at the McCullough-Price historical house.
On display were several arcade classics like Centipede right along side current generation games like Guitar Hero and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. If you missed your chance to check it out this weekend, you can try again any day between now and September 6.
No dear reader, we haven't gone loco on you. We know Bonnaroo went down in Tennessee, but members of the Village Voice family were there recording it all for you.
