Yesterday I was in Toronto. I like it though Montreal seems to be
"warmer" (not so much business and less concrete).

Anyway I saw an Arcade (was also called "Arcade"), but I forgot the
street. I think it was between Young Street and Dundas Street, close to
Dundas. Most of the games were from after 2000. Pinball machines were
mostly by Stern, as Williams and so Bally and Gottlieb's gave up their
business. Scary to see that.

But in the dark corner they hid the real games. There were five old
cabs. Three Pacmans (original, MS and one other), and Galaga as well as
Galixians in a probably original cab. Yeah. :-)

Now what was the page I can check if it'd already mentioned in the
"Arcade database"?

Still cannot find it. May be I'm too stupid to google for it. Or it's the
Molson Dry next to me which... ;-)

B. :-)

In case I ever get back to Toronto (damn, I not even wrote post cards to
other people from there) I will take the time to play Galaxians and Galaga
there, and also check out A.

I remember the one I meant also had pizza restaurant (umm, very small)
there.

Yes and no. :-)

It has an overview of Aracde games, and already listed the location in
Yonge Strret/Toronto. But it seems not to be the page I provided a link
in late 2003.

The other page had way more links in Europe (I listed the Arcade in the
"European City" in Bologne Sur Mer/France, but only one link in France
found here.

Thanks anyway, I will go on searching. The former libk was posted in this
groups then, but I don't know what to google for.
