Boca not Nova

Yep. Don Carter’s was the go to place for Boca Middle/High. I’m guessing that’s gone too now?

(Still miss Taco Viva in the Boca Mall.)

Edit: Looks like it’s still around, but called “Strikes @ Boca” now.

i played games at don carters thruout the 80s/90s. and i remember that they had the latest A+ pinballs on the floor. problem is, i passed them all and plopped my quarter into mat mania. :)

strikes purchased don carter's...and they are still there. i'll run in some day just to see how different it is now.

the bowling lanes were wavy, i dont think anyone who took bowling serious, wanted to play there
