Inland Empire-based video gaming event to feature pin artist BB-CRE.8
Shortly after the bar opened, the event’s organizer and DJ approached the owners, wondering why there weren’t video games at a bar called Pixels.
The owner was intrigued by the idea but didn’t know how to incorporate gaming into the bar.
“I said, without really knowing much— ‘well, I could probably figure it out if you give me the chance.’ And he said, ‘if you figure it out, we can make something happen.’”
Garcia loaded up a few consoles with games and presented his idea to the owners for what he thought would be an entertaining evening at the bar: video game tournaments and live DJ sets.
That was four years ago—and every Wednesday since, except for holidays or occasions when the bar is closed, Arcade Wednesdays has been a mainstay at Pixel Bar and Eatery, 3535 University Ave. in Riverside, California.
