There is an Arcade, it's called Lucky's, and they aren't doing well at all actually. It's where Bar Charlotte used to be. There's also one in NoDa called "Abari".

Wow... had no idea at all. I'm going to check them out or atleast the one uptown asap.

Three of them!? C'mon... you're pulling my leg. Why aren't they more known? Or am I just the one who needs to get out more? Lol

They're all pretty new. Abari just celebrated their 1st year anniversary and is pretty popular. Their focus is pinball machines and more vintage games, late 70's - early 90's. I haven't been to Lucky's but it looks to be a bit more of a focus on physical games like skee ball, table hockey and DDR in addition to pinball and some bigger 2000ish arcade games. I don't think Palmer St. Game Bar is open yet but its close.

Lucky's has DDR? Thank you, that changes everything. In my mind that puts it in another league as the (horrific) Blind Pig.

I was the biggest video game fanatic growing up, and I was pumped for Abari, but after half a dozen attempts I'm always bored in there. I just can't get into these simple games that were made for kids (well, NBA Jam is pretty sweet).

I enjoy the pinball there a lot, but yeah most of the old arcade games are either overly simple or impossibly hard. In any case its a fun bar to hang out at IMO. I'm looking forward to trying the other 2 for some of the more modern light gun and driving games.

I wish this is something Charlotte would get.  Alamo Drafthouse is the best and they really support local craft beers.  Raleigh just got their first location and another one seems to be coming to Asheville at the mall site. https://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2018/03/29/alamo-drafthouse-readies-for-raleigh-debut.html?ana=e_ae_set4&s=article_du&ed=2018-03-31&u=oAaDx%2B74FoP4qOJ%2By4AU6dhJPpc&t=1522500035&j=80784581

Locations I think could be good would be South End, NoDa, further down Central from Plaza Midwood like anchoring the old Eastland site.  anyway one of these could revitalize any old shopping center as they are doing in Raleigh.

Isn’t really my wish but some of you guys drive me nuts wanting CLT to have something unique. 

AC hotel really stood out in the skyline the other night with bright bright red lights. There are so many colors on our skyline. I say you want something unique.... Expand on it. The city of lights (yes, I know Paris has the age old nick name)... get more structures or what have you have more colored lights. I’m sure you could get creative. It’s unique without being forced. It’s realistic (I don’t think a statue or anything we could make could be iconic especially compared to those others like the St. Louis arch, etc).

Stemming from the fact that Norfolk Southern screwed the Red Line a bit (NC politicians helped as well),  I wish that NS would sell the line north of Uptown to the city or state!

Now that they are open to selling Tracks - I wish we could plan to for Commuter Rail to the exurbs and make the region more connected.

commuter rail to Rock Hill, Gastonia, Monroe, Concord/Kannapolis, Salisbury and Statesville

Do yall remember or even hear when there was a proposed Times Square South proposed in Atlanta....that I don't believe ever happened? Well since Charlotte is, like New York a mega banking city. wouldn't that concept be amazing in Charlotte. A mini times square. Almost like how the ground level by the Epicenter looks. It could add to that area to create this concept.  If you did not  hear about it. Here is the link. http://discoveratlanta.tumblr.com/timessquaresouth
