Recently, Finn and I went on a little date to Musée Mécanique, an arcade and museum that features both early 20th century & modern arcade games, all in working order! We took a pouch full of quarters, rode the bus to Fisherman's Wharf, and had fun playing skee-ball & hoop fever along with firing up the old timey machines (that are all kind of creepy). Most games are only 25¢ to play, so you can try lots. Before leaving, we had some photo-booth pictures taken then ate In-N-Out burgers for dinner. The concept of games and burgers by the ocean with Finn is essentially my most ideal date ever so, needless to say, we had a blast.
I enjoyed noticing how Finn and I are different in the (very important) realm of arcade games. He was attracted to the more physical, strength-requiring, or timed games and I was more drawn to spatial-tactile games that involved aiming or concentration. I like finding how we're different in the various arenas of life. Also, I'm thinking of one day owning a skee-ball machine in our home. Maybe? That game is just so fun!
