I set out to find the Barbary on a cold November night, and after stumbling over a torn-up side street under a highway overpass past half a dozen pieces of giant machinery, I found the place. Inside were five or six guys watching an episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" playing off a laptop, projected onto a brick wall. Perfect.

The booth was in excellent working order, and I took a strip of photos inside. I did my standard patdown of the top of the machine and came across the strip seen here, abandoned after a night of carousing, no doubt. The strip I took never made it back from Philadelphia, so I'm glad I held onto this found photo.
