I visited the Village Tap on a Friday afternoon, happy that they open up at noon that day. The photobooth, a nice open-sided Model 14, sits in the back next to the kitchen, before you head out to the beer garden. A tv on top of the booth was playing Mexican soaps when I stopped by. Next to the booth is everyone's favorite photobooth companion, the Golden Tee video game.

The photos from the Village Tap's booth come out very nicely, with a great range of tones and nicely rounded corners on the bottom of each photo. The back of my photostrip was coated with a dirty residue, but the photos weren't affected.

UPDATE 11/6/16: Andrew writes that the Village Tap booth is "in fair condition" during a visit today.

UPDATE 11/9/19: Ben writes, "Black border, dark, gray skintones, a few months ago the border was gray, minor staining, very gray throughout, but looks nice."
