And the Winner is...Atlas Arcade

The results:

Dear Frozen Tropics Readers, Friends, Neighbors, and Drinkers,

We cannot express our thanks enough for all of your enthusiasm in our new venture and all of the awesome comments and bar names you’ve given us. This has been so much fun! We have chosen the name Atlas Arcade, for its timelessness and its sense of place. So the winner is Don S, who unfortunately didn’t leave any contact info. Don S, please contact us at! You have won $150 in quarters!

There were so many great names and we were so entertained that we also chose some honorable mentions who will each get two free drinks on their first visit to Atlas Arcade:

Raygun Era (by Inked)
Drunky Kong (by Farcus)
Princess Barstool (by J.G.)
Atlas Chugged (by Negroni)

Additionally, Erik would like to buy a beer for the anonymous reader who took a creative cheap shot and posted “For Lease.” Among the team we also liked “Do Your Homework, Erik” so obviously a great deal of humor has been employed in this endeavor.

Again, thank you so much all for submitting your names and really having fun with it! As a token of our thanks, we would like to invite all those who posted with their contact info to a private neighborhood appreciation power hour this Sunday afternoon, July 15 from 12-4. Free Pop Tarts for all! (and maybe some other fun stuff)

We open to the public Tuesday, July 10, at 6 PM.
We hope to see you all soon!

Game On.

The Atlas Arcade Team

I posted the "For Lease" suggestion. You can buy me a beer sometime at the Pug next door.

Great name, even though you didn't go with an 80's theme. Look forward to dropping by.

Hard to beat the sheer classiness of this name. Good choice.

Eh, pretty boring in my opinion.
