I am sure if he can use the bar to sell games, he will.  What does he care if someone wants to buy a game off his bar floor?  He will just plug another one in its place.  As long as he keeps the games up and running as smoothy as Marcel does at SBM, he could probably do OK.

if manny owns this barcade, sure...sell what you can, how you can. the buyers are ravenous, as can be seen with $2500+ badly converted multi-games listed on craigslist/offer up.

but what was reported here, is manny was hired to find games for this location. not that manny was opening a bar.

the CL ad appears to show him as owner of this location.

interesting, that's all. as a buyer-in-person, manny is/had been a straight shooter. it's the internet sales that have given him a bad rep.

To keep the conversation going, he is also on Facebook asking questions like "I have an arcade with 250+ pinball machines, how much should I charge per hour"?

Interesting business plan, to say the least ...

location: US1 and NE 146th Street

North Miami.

See no arcades. Missing out. :)

hopefully locals can check it out and report back on condition, setup, etc...$20 for 2 hours seems overpriced for comparison to the local scene, but xtreme indoor karts cost a kidney to go racing, so time will tell if this will work...

edited: it is in the same plaza as the Miami Auto Museum:

Maybe a multicade or 2. They have a modern Batman videogame.

Ya, no thanks.  $20 for two hours?  It looks like some spare space was available and games were thrown in there.  I'd rather go to Adams or SBM.

Can Silverball Museum double as a hurricane shelter? If so, can I hunker down there? :) That's another selling point for SBM!
