Usually, when we're in Las Vegas to attend NAB, the evenings are a time to rest the aching feet, perhaps throw back a libation or two, and generally relax before the next day's havoc ensues. This year, however, we got wind of one of Sin City's hidden marvels: the Pinball Hall of Fame,
10,000 square feet of electro-mechanical goodness from the '60s, '70s, and on, as well as some rarities from the '50s, and classic arcade shooters, diggers and baseball machines as well. It's located well off-strip, near McCarran Airport, and is open late into the night. Best of all, the shiny quarters fed into the slots go to help the needy via donations to the Salvation Army. And if you can beat our score on Fireball or Royal Flush, the next game's on us.
