Up-Down Minneapolis | Saturday, March 24, 2018 1:00 PM-3:30 PM

Please Note!!!!!!!!!!!  Due to the concern over St. Patrick's Day, the number of people attending, and the promotion by Up/Down on Facebook for St. Patrick's Day, I have decided to change the date to the following Saturday, March 24.  Also keep in mind that 35W is closed on weekends so getting there will be a bit more tricky.  Sorry for the change but it is the best for everyone.  Looking forward to seeing everyone on the 24th.  Hope you can still make it.  Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Tyler and Joe loved this place!
Up-Down features more than 50 arcade games from the ‘80s and ‘90s, Pinball Machines, four Classic Skee-Ball alleys, Nintendo 64 console gaming, Life-Size Jenga and Connect four.
All games cost just 25 cents. That mean's, bring quarters.
Food is also available.
Cost:  Whatever you want to spend
