D Pad preserves the social aspect of video gaming by welcoming visitors into its haven of pixilated entertainment, filled with classic arcade machines, modern console systems, and a wide selection of retail titles. Ten PC gaming rigs and 16 flat-screen TVs equipped with Xbox 360 and PS3 systems rouse friendly competition from birthday revelers and other groups inside the store’s LAN center, decked out with exposed brick walls and sealed power boxes. Plucked from closed shopping malls and laundromats found frozen in icebergs, vintage arcade game cabinets, including 1942, X-Men, and NBA Jam entice quarter collectors to spend their cache in attempts to conquer difficult levels. An on-location retail shop also sends gamers home with favorite titles from yesterday and today through D Pad's buy, sell, and trade services.
A finalist for the 2006 Richard Rodgers Award, Greetings from Yorkville poignantly chronicles the travails and joys of a Midwestern songwriting duo as they move to Manhattan to realize their dream of a life in musical theater.

The Brauntex Theatre will host a one-night-only reprise of the original Off-Broadway run in its intimate 600-seat auditorium, feeding families and garnishing West San Antonio Street with a sliver of Big Apple.
