Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

It's spring! Time for Midwest Gaming Classic at Brookfield's Sheraton Hotel - March 23 & 24

Brookfield, Just for fun!, Special events

Billy Mitchel - 2004*  
Broke world record!
Although the weather isn't exactly springlike, the calender says it's time for that annual springtime treat for gamers, the Midwest Gaming Classic! What's a Midwest Gaming Classic? Why, its "the largest all-encompassing electronic gaming trade show in the Midwest:"

This year, it will again be held at the Sheraton Milwaukee Brookfield Hotel, at 375 South Moorland Rd., just south of Brookfield Square and north of I-94.

The 2013 event runs from Saturday, March 23, from 10am to 8pm, and Sunday, from 10am to 5pm. Check their Event Guide for the schedule. Tickets are $35 for the entire weekend or $30 on Saturday and $15 on Sunday. Children 10 and under get in free with a paying adult. There are pinball and video arcade games to play--all set on free play, pinball and video arcade machines, accessories and parts to purchase, and fun to be had!

Don't feel like playing non-stop? Attend a Panel or Presentation. Billy Mitchel will be returning to present Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and High Scores at noon on Sunday. And unlike Mitchel's last visit, in 2004 when Mitchel publicly broke the record on my son's Donkey Kong machine, my hubby will have his Sharpie ready for an autograph!
