Don had grown up playing pinball when his father took him to the bowling alley. As he grew up, the love of pinball never faded. After Don and Connie married in 2010, the collection began to grow. They would host get-togethers and parties, which the guests frequently enjoyed the games as well as Connie's culinary creations. In 2018, the couple got the idea and started working on creating a new place for locals to hang out in downtown Tavares, FL.
In January 2019, iPinball saw it's doors open and Don and Connie's dream came true. At the time, iPinball features about 10 pinball machines, 5 pool tables, darts, foosball, and other arcade games. Over the course of the year, iPinball grew to one of Tavares's favorite hot spots. In partnering with Little Shop of Games in the Tampa Bay area and some local pinball owners, the collection at iPinball surged to 18 games by the end of their first year.
Aside from building the arcade, Connie's dream of exploring the culinary arts with creative and simple dishes was released to the public. One of the all-time favorites, the Mac N Cheese dog, an angus beef hot dog smothered in homemade macaroni and cheese served with a choice of chips, can be frequently spotted on the way to a hungry customer. Some other unique favorites include the Dammit Man Cheeseburger with ooey-gooey snappy beer cheese, funnel cake fries, and of course, the chili cheese dog.
