North Star and The Quarters invite you to come play classic arcade games with friends at our inaugural Valley Games Day event on Tuesday, May 1, 12-6 p.m. Ten dollars admission gets
you UNLIMITED tokens! Timed to coincide with the annual Valley Gives Day, this is your chance to support North Star and have fun at the same time. ALL proceeds will go to North Star.

Want to join the fun, but arcade games aren't your thing? Bring a deck of cards and perch on one of The Quarters' many tables, or enjoy the spring weather out on its patio. Located at 8 Railroad Street just off Route 9, The Quarters has bike racks for those who choose to ride the Rail Trail, plus it's just one block away from the PVTA heading in either direction.
