Lucky Ju Ju Pinball Parlor

Lucky JuJuI’ve always loved pinball but good machines are hard to find and I can never get enough. There used to be a great place in South Berkeley that had a bunch of machines but I don’t know what became of it. I was delighted to discover the Lucky Ju Ju. Hidden behind a laundromat in Alameda, this place is a gem. They’re a non-profit and only open for limited hours Friday through Sunday. If you love pinball this is the place for you. You pay $10 at the door and all the machines inside are set on open play. You can play dozens of different machines including classic ones from the 50s and 60s as well as more modern machines. They’ve even got a fridge with sodas and $1 popcorn. A great value and lots of fun.
