It was earlier this month that a well-known arcade in Downtown Los Angeles permanently shut its iron curtains for good. That place is the Sassony Arcade, located on 7th & Broadway.

August 2nd, 2007 - The day I turned 23 years old. I met my best friend of seven years here, too. It was your typical summer day in LA--hot and humid. I decided to play hooky from French class and jumped on the 68 (before the route was shortened and became the 35) from Los Angeles Trade-Technical College to 7th and Broadway, just so I can play a particular game (see pictures below).

Flash forward to the summer of 2014--It was June 9th. I took a trip to the arcade after completing the last of my final exams for a pick-up game related to Street Fighter (see below).
