*There has finally been a reprieve from all of the tragedy and just plain ol’ bad news. The city of East L.A. is home to probably the only handmade arcade in the nation.
The full service entertainment center is made completely of cardboard boxes and constructed by a 9-year old boy.
The boy is Caine Monroy and he worked with his dad last summer in his auto parts store in an industrial section of East LA.
Business was slow and he didn’t have anything else to do, so of course the next logical thing for him to do was to build his own arcade made from his dad’s boxes from his supply room.
The little boy finished his arcade complete with tickets akin to those the Chuck E. Cheese game machines reward its customers with, except little Caine jumps in the box and pushes the tickets out to the customer that scores.
His one and only customer, Nirvan, showed up and was so impressed at Caine’s enterprise that he arranged a really nice surprise of something he had been looking forward to since he opened to the public: Customers … LOTS OF THEM!
