Best Place to Play Pinball 

The Silver Ballroom

Pinball, beards and tallboys: None of these things ever actually went out of style. Their popularity might wax and wane, but each one has always been considered cool to some degree. (The Who didn't write "Skee-Ball Wizard," for crying out loud.) And so Bevo's Silver Ballroom has built a legion of cools we'll call "flipsters," those south-city-dwelling, PBR-drinking, facial-hair-sporting, hard-rocking, pinball-playing men with impeccable taste. It's with more than a shot of good humor that this self-described Retox Center and its menu were constructed: Note the drinks called Slutbuckets and the Fat Bastard sammich. But it takes ballin' seriously, too: The bar boasts one of the Midwest's only new Iron Man games and plenty of classics, including Whirlwind and Lucky Lady. Like a perfectly launched shot from the plunger, the Silver Ballroom expertly racks up points — and scores extra for style.
