Sometimes drinking makes us think about the past. This could either result in a fond trip down memory lane or an angry 2am. phone call to that person who just needs to know what you “really think of them.” How this will end up is really a coin toss.

Put on those booze goggles and check out something from way back in the past that can only be remembered fondly, arcade games!
