The ARTSLAM! 8-BIT ARCADE! (LEVEL 2) Show was a BLAST!

This past Saturday, March 31, I was able to attend the 8-BIT ARCADE! (LEVEL 2) event at the White Rabbit in San Antonio, hosted by ARTSLAM! San Antonio, and sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon and Montana.  The premise for the event is to bring back the memories of childhood from going to the arcade, spending quarters upon quarters of our allowance money (or cash from our parents), learning team-building strategies from classic arcade co-op games like “The Simpsons,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time,” or “X-Men” with friends and complete strangers.  Man, those were the days; too bad arcades (on a large scale) are pretty much dead in America (and NO, Dave & Busters does NOT count).

The Rock vs. Hollywood Hulk Hogan, WrestleMania X8 (2002)

This Sunday in Miami, The Rock and John Cena will face off at WrestleMania XXVIII (28); a match that was over one year in the making (reminiscent of old 70’s & 80’s storylines), and is being dubbed and promoted as an Icon vs. Icon-style of match given both stars’ pop culture popularity.  However, this isn’t The Rock’s first time being promoted in this type of match.
