Einstein’s Divorce Agreement and the Nuanced Messiness of the Human Heart
“In the case of a divorce, I would grant you significant pecuniary advantages through particularly generous concessions.”
No shade on people who hit me up for free tickets but it just isn’t the time.
And just to clarify two points for the inevitable conspiracy theorist replies:
1) I get paid the same for clubs either way so it ain’t about me and
2) every show I’ve been to since reopening I bought my own damn tickets and if a spoilt brat like me can avoid asking for guest-list SO CAN YOU. 🤷♂️🤦♂️

Prodigy Minigolf & Gameroom
Prodigy has pretty good news and very bad news. The good news is that the community has really let me know they love this place and that makes me feel like I created something wonderful back in 2018. The very bad news is that, honestly and bluntly, Prodigy hasn't had a profitable week since March after 2 years of continued success and now things are looking bleak. I've done everything I've been asked to do to be as safe as possible and I've spent a lot of time and money doing so. I've kept a positive attitude through this whole thing in hopes that things would pick up. I put my whole life savings into reopening and then staying open this last 4 months. I hate to be so direct, but I'm literally out of money and now my night hours are being shortened by the state (???). Prodigy simply can't stay open with the current situation and I'm scared to death. I ask to please give Prodigy a chance if you haven't been back since we reopened. I've been here everyday and I feel that this place is as safe as any place can get; safer than most of your friend's homes, your local grocery stores, Wal-Marts or banks. You're being told to 'stay home' which is the exact opposite of what we need. We need most people going out and having fun again... safely. Prodigy needs you right now. If you want this place to continue being Easthampton's great gameroom, please, oh please, come see how safe it can be for yourself. Stop by and take a look. Please share your experiences with your friends especially if you've been here since we reopened. Please tell everyone about Prodigy. I really need you right now. Thank you for reading this plea. -Jeff Bujak (owner)
UPDATE: You can DONATE and purchase eGift Cards on our website prodigyminigolf.com. Thank you everyone for all the support!!!!
