Lucky Ju Ju Pinball Gallery
Ever wondered where to go in the East Bay to play endless games of Evel Knievel, Addams Family, and Twilight Zone? If you like pinball, Lucky Ju Ju in Alameda will make you like it even more. If you don't like it, you're missing out. This unique museum/art gallery/vintage pinball palace makes for a perfect alternative to hitting up the bars on weekend nights. In fact, it has quickly gained a reputation for being one of the most popular date spots around the Bay Area. Whether you're there to play or just to admire owner and curator Michael Schiess' extensive collection, don't miss the museum's highlight: a see-through pinball machine that gives you a look into the guts of the game while you play. If that's not reason enough to make the trip out to Alameda, keep in mind that admission is cheap, popcorn is plentiful, and of course, the pinball is the best in the East Bay.
