The event will take place on the patio and seating is limited so it will be on a first come first serve basis. In support of social distancing, all regulations will be followed. Please remember to bring your mask. Come have a good laugh with Scott Walker, Patrick Russell, Jordan Hoath, Daniel Shaw, Jeff Faulkner, Colin Brown and of course headliner Marc Trinidad.

Scott Walker

The Last Level Lounge is a fun arcade and pinball lounge with an 80’s retro vibe, great customer service and active gameplay. It’s a great place where you can relive your childhood. They also serve alcohol and are partnered with Chavo Crapes next door. If you’re wondering about food, they have pizza, nachos, and tacos! What more could you ask for?

We have compiled a list of games along with some corny arcade jokes to get you in the mood for the event. Please note that the Comedians jokes will be much funnier.

  • What happens when you put 2 Pac-Man machines together? The paparazzi show up saying “Hey, look! it’s Tupac, Man”. Every adult should know this classic arcade game unless you lived under a rock as a child. But did you know this funny little fact? The arcade title was first released as Puck-Man. The name was changed to Pac-Man to avoid the machines getting vandalized. A lot of arcade operators at the time were worried about the P being changed to an F.
  • Why are frogs so happy? They eat whatever bugs them. While we are on the topic of frogs, Frogger is another fun retro classic that was introduced in 1981. It was developed by Konami. The object of this came is to help get frogs (one by one) across a busy road, and a river full of hazards! 
  • What is the most popular Arcade game in Mexico? Guac-a-mole
  • What is Joe Biden’s favourite arcade game? Space Invaders. Did you know Ice Cold Beer is a mechanical arcade game released by Taito in 1983? Taito released a lot of classics including Space Invaders and Bubble Bobble. It is a popular choice for game collectors. Speaking of ice-cold Beer, did you know the Last Level supports local draft beer! 
  • The World Warrior, also known as Street Fighter II, is a competitive fighting game developed by Capcom and originally released for arcade systems in 1991. Street Fighter II became very popular in the golden age of arcade gaming.
  • What do you say when you leave an arcade? See you later Simulator!

Cinema Smackdown Episode 13 – Speed: Cruise Control

Cinema Smack Down

In our unlucky # 13 episode, Fraser and Scott have the bad luck to endure Speed: Cruise Control, possibly the most unnecessary sequel of all time. Along the way they offend a Canadian Icon, shout-out to comedian Jeremy Hotz and explore ornithological sexual orientation.

If you are easily offended, be aware of the swears.
