  • NerdHaven Recap

    Hello, Belles!! Thank you to all who came out for another super meetup at Nerdhaven last night, including the 2 fantastic new players! It’s always a blast to see you all and be able to play together. Yay, pinball!!

    Yesterday we saw Amanda N, Katie B and Lauren R as the top 3 winners of the night, scoring some adorably spooky trophies. Winners of the additional knockout round groups, who won gift cards to NerdHaven, were Donelle, Tiffany and Jena.  Well done!

    We’re hoping to see everyone next month for our November meetup at I/O Arcade.  Then we will wrap up the year with another bash at Nerdhaven for some holiday shenanigans including a Venom launch party! Should be a jolly time, and feel free to bring along some pinball-curious friends and family for the ride!

    And don’t forget! Belles & Chimes uses an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people.

    Happy flipping!

  • Blue Moon Bar & Grill Recap

    Hello, delightful people of Belles! We had a mighty turnout on Wednesday night for the September meetup at Blue Moon sponsored by One Barrel. Thanks to Blue Moon for hosting our group and thank you to One Barrel for the wonderful prizes and free drinks.  It was great to see you all as the season is changing and we move into cooler weather. Which we all know is pinball weather. What better way to spend the upcoming harsh midwestern winter?!

    We had 14 players participate last night, including one newbie! Welcome! The top players of the night were Sara in the numero uno position, then Aimee in 2nd and Jacque in 3rd. Other knockout round winners were Elise, Lauren and Amanda. Sweet skills, people!! Hope to see you all again in October for some more affectionate battle!

  • Blue Moon Bar & Grill Recap

    Belles, last night was a fun night night with the 16 of you that made time to join us for some pinball at Blue Moon Bar & Grill.  Thank you Blue Moon for hosting all of us on short notice.  RIP O’so Madhouse.  🙁

    This month we had two of the 3 top winners celebrating their birthdays.  Happy birthday to you ladies!  We got to award the top three players with hand painted Volkswagen Bus photo holders.  Congratulations to Lauren (1st 🎂), Dori (2nd 🎂), and Katie B (3rd).  In addition to the trophies One Barrel spoiled us with drinks and cute & soft tank tops!  And guess what?!!?  They will be sponsoring us again next month at Blue Moon Bar and Grill.  Can’t wait to flip with you all again next month!
