I only live 2.5 hours from Seattle, the site of the 2013 Northwest Pinball and Arcade Show. I was really looking forward to going this year, but due to time constraints and family commitments, I was unable to attend.
Fortunately Pinball Soul had excellent coverage of the event. You can find this coverage here, and here, and even more goodness here. Thanks to Josh at Pinball Soul for saving the day. I've definitely got to get up there in 2014!
