Clink. It's the sound you hear when you drop a quarter into an arcade game, just before the computerized music starts up and you grip the joystick with anxious excitement. That sound can be heard throughout The Quarters, a barcade where gamers revisit old friends such as Paperboy, Ms. Pac-Man, and the X-Men. Most of the two-dozen cabinets predate 1990, which informs decor touches such as mason jars printed with "The Quarters" in 8-bit-style font. These jars can be filled with anything from homemade lemonade to specialty cocktails (displayed on a TV, of course), all of which pairs nicely with nostalgic snacks such as mini hot dogs and ice-cream sandwiches that, thankfully, aren't actually from the '80s.
