There was also a shooting game that wasn’t working two player as well last night
Y’all need to maintenance the arcade game ASAP. Ms PAC Man cut me off and took my quarters and the two player game was eating quarters didn’t let us play at all.
If we’re forced to stay home this NYE, at least we have Coin Op Gaslamp meat and cheese platter to keep us company!
Are you still hiring
Do you guys have any specials deals going on and how much are playing the video games there
Coin-Op Gameroom Update: It’s been about 2 weeks since our bar operations have been turned upside down. When we closed our doors due to COVID-19, our main priority was our staff & how these 200 individuals & their families would be impacted. Our management team has been working tirelessly to offer as much support as possible to those employees most affected by our temporary closures of 6 stores.

Here’s what we’ve done! We’ve launched our Coin-Op Family Food Bank, which provides provisions to our staff & their families on a weekly basis. We’ve continued to employ a healthy few to prep these Food Boxes as well as operate our small Curbside Take-Out operations from Coin Op Gaslamp, Coin-Op Temecula & The Lion's Share on a daily basis. For those who have ordered takeaway meals & beverages from our locations, thank you so much for your business! All profits from these sales go back to paying our hourly staff & funding our Food Bank. Please continue to do so!!

In addition, with the help of industry ambassadors and liquor companies, they have sponsored meals for our staff through Free Pizza Giveaways at certain locations. While winners call in for a chance at a free pizza, we also encourage the additional purchase of a drink or appetizer with your free takeaway, or perhaps a tip, that would benefit our staff who prepared your pizza. The deepest of gratitude to all sponsors who are giving back to the bar community as well as those who have grabbed an extra item or two with their free pie! Every penny counts! Follow our Instagram accounts for these announcements!

If you wish to also directly fund our Food Bank & support our family, please donate to our GoFundMe campaign ( We are uncertain when we will be able to open our doors again & continue to plan ahead ensuring all 200+ mouths are fed. The donations we have received thus far from bar regulars, friends, family members, investors, and strangers alike has moved us beyond words. On behalf of our staff, we thank you all so much! We can’t wait to host you all again at our bars.
Although anything but normal, it still Friday evening and you know after the week we've all had, you definitely don't feel like cooking dinner.
Our RMD venues are closed but these local SD restaurants are still serving up delicious meals for their neighborhoods! Give them a call, order online, use your favorite delivery app, and remember to tip!

Q*bert is an arcade game developed and published for the North American market by Gottlieb in 1982. It is a 2D action game with puzzle elements that uses isometric graphics to create a pseudo-3D effect. The objective of each level in the game is to change every cube in a pyramid to a target color by making Q*bert, the on-screen character, hop on top of the cube while avoiding obstacles and enemies. Players use a joystick to control the character.

Q*bert was well-received in arcades and among critics. The game was Gottlieb's most successful video game and is among the most recognized brands from the golden age of arcade games. It has been ported to numerous platforms. The game's success resulted in sequels and the use of the character's likeness in merchandising, such as appearances on lunch boxes, toys, and an animated television show. The Q*bert character became known for his "swearing" and "Q*bertese sound" – an incoherent phrase made of synthesized speech generated by the sound chip and a speech balloon of nonsensical characters that appear when he collides with an enemy.

Battle Shark is a first person shoot 'em up arcade game released in 1989 by Taito. The player looks through a submarine periscope in order to destroy enemies, featuring simulated damage whenever the player gets hit by either an enemy torpedo or a missile.
The player starts off with a limited amount of torpedoes, which slowly replenishes itself, so players must shoot accurately. Power-up targets appear throughout the games, which can increase the player's supply of torpedoes, repairs damage or add extra firepower in addition to the torpedoes. At the end of each stage, the player faces off against a Boss character.

Teddy Ruxbin came from the mind of Ken Forsee, an ex Disney employee who thought it’d be a good idea to bring a lovable, yet very creepy animatronic character into the homes of millions of children. Teddy Ruxbin became the best selling toy of 1985 and 1986, making the company that produced and distributed it, Worlds of Wonder, very rich and powerful.


Coming off of the “Video game crash of 1983”, where there was a large-scale recession in the gaming industry (1983-1985) due to over-saturation of available consoles and games, as well as the arrival of Personal computers, no one wanted to fund the distribution of yet “another gaming console”. Atari had plans to market the NES as the new Atari gaming system, but backed out due to a debacle involving Coleco at a consumer electronics show back in ‘83. Fools.

Thanks to Teddy Ruxbin, Worlds of Wonder made a cool $93 million in 1985 alone, providing them with the cashflow to become the Nintendo Corporation’s sugar daddy and distribute the NES to retailers throughout the USA.

As we all know, the NES went on to resurrect the American video game market and become THE BEST gaming console of all time.

1987: Riding high on all of their success, Worlds of Wonder decided to place a massive order for more Teddy Ruxbins, but the kids moved on to the Koosh Ball, My Little Pony, and Jenga, leaving a stock-pile of battery-powered Illiops to rot.

Sh*tty move, NINTENDO:
In October of 1987, The Nintendo Corporation cancelled its partnership with Worlds of Wonder and hired/stole all of their staff. World’s of Wonder went belly up in 1991, and Nintendo went on to do what Nintendo has done.


Also, we open today.
