Like Video Games? Like Drinking? Live in the NYC Area?


If you like video games and drinking and live in the greater New York City area, then you owe it to yourself to check out Barcade.  This gaming hot spot is located at 388 Union Avenue in Brooklyn.  It's difficult to put into words the feeling of drinking a fine libation in one hand while having your butt kicked by those terrible little blobs in Pengo.  You'll just have to take my word that it's something pretty special.
