I first heard about Funspot when I saw the GREAT documentary “The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters“. If you haven’t watched it, you should do that. My hometown is within driving distance of Laconia, New Hampshire, where Funspot is located so I made a point to go when I was visiting my parents.
When we got there, I went straight to the room where that iconic scene in “King of Kong” took place. I felt a little like I was in a mini video games convention.
In my natural habitat.
I love dig dug!
I had never head of this arcade game, it was called “Lady Bug”. But I loved the art! I wanna cosplay the girl from Lady Bug! I wonder if anyone would know who I’m supposed to be?
I am terrible at Donkey Kong, but I just wanted to play on the same cabinet as Billy and Steve! Bonus appearance of the Feed Me bag I made.
I wonder if deadmau5 got the idea for the title of “Ghosts n Stuff” from this game.
The only thing I was disappointed by was that they didn’t have “Hydro Thunder”. It’s not retro but it IS my favourite arcade game.
I won enough tickets to get this mug.
The next day, we went to North Conway so I could go shopping. There were not a lot of shops that I liked, plus it was raining like a bastard, but I found this awesome vegan cafe by pure, unadulterated luck! It is called Taste of Life.
I’ve been drinking green juice every morning and I was all BLAH that day because we didn’t have a juicer at the cabin so I wasn’t able to have my morning juice. Little did I know I would find this cafe, and they served the EXACT SAME GREEN JUICE that I always make! The same recipe. It tasted the same. I also got this vegan coconut yoghurt granola that was AMAZING:
I also liked that it matched my outfit. They have a facebook page here! Next time you’re in New Hampshire, be sure to go there!
