Well hopefully by the time you read this, you’ve voted, posted your selfie of yourself voting on the social media platform of your choice, and have started working on your next post expressing your profound disappointment in the election results.

It’s hard to believe that this game is forty years young, because the gameplay and graphics (shout out to vector graphics!) are still neat as hell. We just brought in an original Asteroids, and it will be hanging out here for a bit, so come down and find out what all the fuss was about in 1979.

With the colder weather coming in, we’ve just tapped the absolutely delicious Breakfast Porter from Indie Ale House, and also have a small stash of As Far Back As I Can Remember, a hazy, citrusy IPA from the good folks at Great Lakes Brewing.

It’s actually a pretty light slate of shows this week at The Danforth Music Hall. There’s a boxing show on Friday. Saturday and Sunday, New Jersey alt-rockers Taking Back Sunday are doing a double header. Remember, cover is only $2 to Zed if you’ve got a Danforth Music Hall ticket for that day.

Our DJ line-up this week has DJ JPQ putting together a night of Alice Cooper inspired jams for you to listen to whilst playing Alice Cooper Pinball, then on Friday, Dreams Yukon will get off the boat he lives on (seriously!) and put together an eclectic mix for the evening. Friday we’ve got special guest DJ Osum filling in for DJ Corey Dawkins and dropping all the bangers.
