When I first heard about the Portland Pastimes theme, I initially thought of the Naked Bike Ride. However, soon after that, I kept thinking of Ground Kontrol (one of the best arcade bars I’ve ever seen). Frogger is a merging of these two things, with the patterning on the mitts reminding me of all the obstacles that both bikers and the frog need to avoid on the way to their destination.
