It's a very Dorky's video game chalk off this week. I'm excited enough that I wanted to get the info out early to get people excited. Here's the prize for this week's winner:

- Free meal for 2
- 1 hour of free play on a pinball machine
- 10 minute pinball lesson from the master, Les
- Free Dorky's t-shirt

This week's theme: All things arcade.

My boss pulled his trump card on me today, and I may need to head into the Seattle office Friday. I'm trying to arrange it so I can still go to the luncheon. But just in case is there anyone else who wants a free lunch at the Pacific Grill Event Center?

For the first time in months I got to go down to the Frost Park Chalk Off! I had a great time and a good workout. This is Stowe by the way... I can't figure out my old login so I am using my son's (apparently).

Oh man, I knew there was going to be some good art out there today (which is why I went to the awards lunch)

I love whole park art, and Kevin's photo work really shows Stowe's piece off. I like the inferences of Mark's pinball game. Al's is amazing too. Gini and Adam never cease to impress me. Poppy tugs at my Doctor heartstrings; however

I'm going to have to VOTE for debivans... you know if Space Invaders came out today that's what those buggers would look like.

Sucks that I couldn't make it. Night shift does that to you.

Anyway, I vote for Stowe. Why? This is the FIRST chalk piece that requires being 4 stories up just to fit it on camera.
That and pac-man is wicked cool.
