BACK TO THE ARCHIVE

Stumbling on this scene in downtown Red Bank Monday night was like a trip back into the not-too-distant reaches of the redbankgreen archive, as Chris LoBue of CLB Photography shot photos of Jim Caroll’s Back to the Future car for an ad for Ken Kalada’s Yestercades – three businesses that have been featured in these pixelated pages in recent months.

TIDINGS OF COMFORT AND JOYSTICKS

Here’s a video that tracks a couple of Red Bank kids as they explore Yestercades, the retro gaming emporium that’s been the buzz of Broad Street since even before it opened in October.

Niko Porter, a fourth-grader at the Red Bank Middle School, and Patricio Vera, a senior at Red Bank Regional, took a whirlwind tour of the arcade, which features such classics as Pac Man, Frogger, Space Invaders and Tetris.

Niko, by the way, no longer sports that awesome mop of hair. He recently donated it to be made into a wig for a cancer patient.

redbankgreen‘s picture person Trish Russoniello did the edit.
