Button Mash's Barcade and Restaurant
I had almost forgotten the childhood joy of playing BurgerTime with my grandmother on her Intellivision game console until I walked into Button Mash and saw the yellow letters and long-lost characters glowing on an arcade machine. The memories and reflexes flooded back. Two high scores later, I had to be peeled away to join my friends for dinner—an addicting experience in itself. Whether Street Fighter, Donkey Kong, Galaga, NBA Jam, or in my case, BurgerTime: Button Mash is a melting pot of nostalgic fun for those of us who are old enough to enjoy the craft beer selection amid the vibrant energy of youth at play who are making new memories of their own (until 9pm).
