San Francisco Beer Week 2016: Pinball & Pints – Pacific Pinball Museum, Alameda, CA, USA
While it’s been a crazy year so far, it gets even crazier every year when San Francisco Beer Week (SFBW) comes around and because Super Bowl 50 is in the Bay Area this year, SFBW had to be moved up and is upon us now!
On Sunday night we were on hand at both Sour Sunday and Pinball and Pints while an Orange Photography alumnus, Natalie Jenks, had a show of her work at The Good Hop in Oakland. […]
Undoubtably you may have noticed that at Orange we have taken a liking to pinball with the machines in the studio and with the work we’ve done supporting Project Pinball and other pinball related charities. This week two of us were on hand at Pinball Expo and get a VIP tour of the Stern Pinball factory as a kick off to the annual trade show and expo. […]
Bonding with your coworkers doesn’t have to be at happy hour. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy chatting over a good beer or margarita. Magnolia just opened up Smokestack a block away from our studio and their beer is incredible! But there are TONS of other ways to connect with coworkers outside of work. […]
We do a ton of holiday parties each year and of course our studio booth and photo booth options are always a hit but we’ve also got to see a lot of different other holiday party venues and ideas that people have for their holiday parties and thought we’d showcase a few of the things we’ve seen. One of the things for smaller companies is being creative with their venues. This year, December has a weird configuration of dates and many of the larger venues have been booked up since early this year. This means that even some of the smaller venues are getting booked up so people are having to be creative.
At Orange, a few of us are big pinball fans and one venue over in Alameda that’s recently expanded is the Pacific Pinball Museum. It’s now got an events room as well as the rest of the space that’s all included in a rental. You can have your own catering and DJs (or photo booths!) and also enjoy playing the games throughout the museum.
If you want games at your event you can have a company like T-Minus One help you out. They can provide video games, pinball and more. We talked to one of the owners, Andy Kuntz, and he had some great info on some trends and ideas.
