It's pinball, with food.
Montreal Now Has A "Pinball Food Truck"

Pinball is making a big comeback in Montreal. Not only has Montreal been graced with its first pinball arcade bar, granting citizens a venue to game retro-style and drink, but the pinball-action will take to the streets too.

Created by North Star Machines à Piastres, the aforementioned pinball-bar that took over the space that was once Korova, Montreal can now has its very own mobile pinball "food" truck.

A rather strange concept, yes, but that doesn't make the notion any less interesting.

North Star co-founder Justin Evans explained that the 1979 Chevy, outfitted with 4 solar powered pinball machines, isn't a proper food vendor itself, but you'll find the mobile gaming car everywhere food trucks are found.

The North Star van will be sent out to all the usual food truck stops once the season is session, allowing Montrealers to experience the bliss of electromechanical pinball in the streets of the city, all while enjoying some high-quality street food.

Sounds mighty fine to us. For more info on North Star, Montreal's first proper pinball arcade bar, check out our feature here.
