so i was trying to think of ways to create a guide (paper or net based...not sure yet) and thought of contacting repair people for locations they may service. or mentioning that i'm interested in creating a list to see if any of the table owners would want to list their tables. but the more i think of it, most of the places one finds tables are generally convenient stores and laundrymats (aside from bars). not the types of places that care one way or another. alot of these placer don't appear keen on groups of people loitering. (found this out at the movie theatre on sheridan in rogers park. they are fine if i go in myself w/o buying a ticket, but when i go with friends, they chase us out).
another problem is that why would the repair people assist with this. probibly to time consuming on thier part. and alot of the above mentioned types of businesses are not keen on groups of people loitering. (found this out at the movie theatre on sheridan in rogers park. they are fine if i go in myself, but when i go with friends, they chase us out).
argh, the more i think about it my three frustrations are: 1) my solo pursuit, on foot, continues to yielding less than desirable results and 2) i don't have much experience in compiling these types of things. 3) to much of the internet stuff=dead links. (wish i could have seen the chicagopinball page before it went inactive).
anyone have pointers or things to consider when putting together something like this?
