Japan Arcade Continue?

Japan Arcade is around ... for now. Liz Ohanesian, writer of many things I enjoy happening LA, has a great article on the stream-a-thon that took place at Family Fun Arcade a week back. You can read it in LA Weekly here

Family Fun Arcade Closes With a Video Game Marathon That Gets Shut Down in the Middle of the Night

The article reveals not only that the event got so packed it had to be shut down, but that Japan Arcade is staying open. Owner Ralph Sehnert says it will be open in the article and a twitter feed from Japan Arcade confirms it too.  I don't know if Japan Arcade's rent didn't go up like I believe Family Fun arcades did, but for right now Japan Arcade should be around after the New Year. Twitter reveals it will change up the look inside the place again.
