Its been a while since weve heard any rumblings about Phillys forthcoming Barcade, the arcade-themed Brooklyn export thats 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 wasnt 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: its unlikely this will be some fly by night operation. One of Barcades founding partners, Scott Beard, recently departed Brooklyn and has made Philly his home. [Inc.]
