In recognition of the recent lifting of outdoor dining restriction in Nevada, The Feast of Friends has announced a special edition of the Bonus Round Food Truck Rally at the Pinball Hall of Fame, this Sunday, February 28, 2021 from 12 noon- 6 p.m.
Four of the most well-regarded local food trucks will participate: Matsuri, Raging Tacos, Signora Pizza, and Nic’s Shrimp House, with a portion of proceeds going to help the Pinball Hall of Fame’s fundraising efforts to move to a new, bigger location on the Las Vegas Strip.
Pinball Hall of Fame will also be raffling off gift certificates for free play, PHOF swag and collectibles. Each food purchase will earn one ticket–the more food you buy, the more chances to win, with prizes being awarded every hour on the hour. Pinball Hall of Fame owner, Tim Arnold, has long been a supporter of the Las Vegas Food Truck community, inviting trucks to park for free in their lot for the last several weeks.
“We love the food truck community,” says The Feast of Friends Leader, Eric Gladstone. “And it’s been a great opportunity to partner with Pinball Hall of Fame on these food truck rallies. Now we’re happy to help give something back.”
About the Pinball Hall of Fame
Pinball Hall of Fame founder Tim Arnold was an avid pinball player in the Lansing, Michigan area when, at just 16 years old, he decided to purchase his very first pinball machine and charge neighborhood kids to play. Thus, a lifelong love for collecting and restoring pinball machines was born! By September 1976, Tim had opened “Pinball Pete’s” in Lansing (and later in Ann Arbor), as a large pinball arcade. He and his brother, Ted, found great success in the arcade industry, regularly bringing 5 gallon buckets of quarters to the bank for deposit.
In 1990, Tim sold his interest in the arcade to his brother and decided to retire to Las Vegas, Nevada, bringing his collection of 1,000 pinball machines with him. Needing a place to store them, he constructed a shed to house the machines. Tim would occasionally invite people to the shed to play them for what he called “Fun Night”, an event he hosted to benefit the Salvation Army. The event grew to the point that Tim eventually purchased a larger building to house his ever-expanding collection of machines.
By 2005, “Fun Nights” became too popular to stay underground and Tim started a pinball club called the LVPCC (Las Vegas Pinball Collectors Club) with a mission to create a “building fund” for a public Pinball Hall of Fame could be born. Tim’s vision was for the Pinball Hall of Fame to exist solely to benefit charitable organizations (as well as to satisfy loyal pinball players), and it has. The Pinball Hall of Fame on Tropicana Boulevard now houses all 1,000+ of Tim’s pinball machines and has raised over a million dollars for charity to date. In 2021, they plan to move to an even bigger location on the Las Vegas Strip.
