Kensington Brewing Co. Pinball Sundays ROUND 1 - Brass Taps

The first round of Kensington Brewery Company and 3030's Pinball Sunday tournaments has come and gone!
The first Pinball Sunday was held at Brass Taps Pizza Pub on the Danforth. My friend Adam and I got there a little early... We thought it was at 3 PM but turns out the tournament was at 5 PM OOF. We met up with my buds, AK and Sean, and we all went to Detroit Eatery for some tasty burgs!
We stopped by ETON House afterwards for a little bit of Black Rose. My excuse to go to ETON house was to take a few pictures of Black Rose with my new camera... and it was totally worth it! See for yourself!
We played a couple of rounds of Black Rose until 5 PM then went back to Brass Taps. We were met with a decent sized crowd of people and things got under way.
There were a few issues that needed to be ironed out but that is usually par for the course when starting off something new! Everything ended up working out well. Learn from your mistakes and build upon it! After we got the tournament entries lined up, the tournament was under way.
We started off on Rolling Stones but the games soon starting spilling over onto Metallica.
 I took over the jukebox and played hella Judas Priest to get me in the zone.

Adam had previously beaten me at 3030's Those Elite Guilty Pleasures event early on the tournament.
This time around we were on opposite sides and made our way through the ranks to the FINALS! TIME TO FIGHT!
It was 2 out of 3 falls to see who would take away the Brass Taps championship. It was a tough fought battle, with Adam taking the first round with about 22 million points, myself taking the second round with... about 22 million points. FINAL ROUND I was on my third ball, down by a couple million, extra ball lit... NO FEAR!
True story and not just a catchphrase on my t-shirt! I managed to score the extra ball and then on my final ball, I lit Electric Chair Multiball. It could have been a game changer but I just could hit it and drained on a missed shot off of the Electric Chair DAMN!
Adam won in a really tough fought battle WOOOO! Congratulations to Adam on winning the tournament! It was a hella tough-fought battle and it couldn't have gone to a better player!
Adam has only won the battle of Brass Taps... but he has yet to win the war of PINBALL SUNDAYS!

Big thanx goes out to AK and Allison for taking some sweet pix while I was playing pinball and stuff!
