Barbershop 2

Have you seen the movie "Barbershop 2"? A similar thing has happened in our little community in southern Maryland recently. Ever since we lost our arcade that was in the mall, We tried to find ways to keep our community of gamer together,



               The First Venue

For a good year and a half, people in the area just used to host little house session and invites the so called friends and leave other behinds. It wasn't a community anymore like in the arcade, it was very divided. Heru decided to try and bring it back to where everyone could play at one place. Coin up's first location was at house, a good amount people showed up for a house session and different games were also played. It got to the point were it was too crowded and we had to find a new location.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Thai Palace
 After about 3 or 4 months at our first location, we found a new place where we could play. Thai Palace was a pretty nice spot for hosting gaming event and they had pretty good food. We were there for about a year until we left due to some issues with the owner of the restaurant.


 Our recent venue is still a restaurant and we've been here since 2012. We're doing pretty good here, everyone is welcomed and it's spot to be on Monday nights if you're a gamer in southern Maryland.
