It’s been a while since we’ve heard any rumblings about Philly’s forthcoming Barcade, the arcade-themed Brooklyn export that’s been long in the works in Fishtown. It’s been a little more than a year since plans were revealed. Before that, we were told the word was it wasn’t happening anytime soon. This week, Inc. drops a piece about the expanding enterprise and its founders. According to it, we can expect to start playing Defender while crushing craft beers sometime “in early September.” And also worth noting: it’s unlikely this will be some fly by night operation. One of Barcade’s founding partners, Scott Beard, recently departed Brooklyn and has made Philly his home. [Inc.]
