The next time someone tells you Tucson (and particularly the downtown area) isn't on the upswing, that things aren't improving, tell them a pinball place is opening in September.

Located at 331 E. 7th St., right off Fourth Avenue, D&D Pinball is hosting 30 machines, including the world's most popular game, The Addams Family.

From D&D's website:

D & D Pinball is the vision of Jane Decker and Gary Dillahunty to bring pinball to the Arizona pinball community, people that have not played pinball in years and to introduce pinball to a new generation that has not yet discovered the lure of the silver ball.

As it says in our title, we are truly dedicated to the Art, Sport and Preservation of Pinball. More than even playing, we love sharing the art and history of pinball and D & D Pinball is our way of promoting pinball to keep it part of the American landscape. Although pinball has been fading away little by little over the years, it is definitely doing its best to make a resurgence and we want to do our part so that as many people as possible can enjoy pinball as much as we do.

More info to come, mostly because I'm going to stalk this place waiting for it to open.
