What is better than trick or treating during the Halloween season? A FREE candy buffet. An arcade bar in Jacksonville, Keg and Coin, is transforming into a Willy Wonka Wonderland next week and guests will have a chance to get the golden ticket.
Chocolate, candies, and pinballs will make you feel like you are in Willy Wonka’s factory itself. The night will include a debut of Aardwolf Gobstopper Sour and Violet Beauregarde Blueberry IPA as well as giveaways from Jersey Jack Pinball.
The original movie will be playing on the projector and there will be a FREE candy buffet from Sweet Pete’s Candy for all the contestants. The event will take place on Thursday, October 10th from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Keg and Coin is a retro arcade bar that’s been dubbed “The Valhalla of Nostalgia” featuring retro merchandise, some of the best craft beer in the industry, vintage pinball machines and even old school consoles that dominated your childhood.
Costumes are highly encouraged at this gamer’s haven.
Besides a line up of vintage games and fun ways to play, the arcade has a bar offering unique beers such as a pumpkin spice latte brew and other seasonal craft beers that are to die for.
Contestants who can get the highest scores during the competition will win prizes from Jersey Jack Pinball. Whoever gets the highest score on the new Willy Wonka Machine will also win the Golden Ticket Prize Pack.
In addition, amazing visuals from the movie will be shown on the wall over the bar for your entertainment.
