There is a dandy new place for geeks to hang out: Backspace, on NW 5th Avenue just past Couch. A great place for insomniacs, it’s open 11am – 12am Sunday through Thursday, and until 4am on Friday and Saturday.

Bill and I wandered down for a game of pool, but the tables were full, so we spent the time taking in some great art on the walls, and checking out the vintage video: Joust, Centipede, Ms. Pac-Man, Tron, and a couple others I can’t remember. There are also several tables full of sweet gaming PCs.

The bottom line: the place feels comfy. Chris is a nice guy who understands geeks. It’s just a few blocks away from home for us, so it will no doubt be a regular haunt.
