Caine’s Arcade in East Los Angeles, CA

Wow. I hope that you take the time to watch this video and this kid, it’s worth it.

Caine is 9 years old and built an elaborate arcade out of cardboard boxes in the front of his father’s used auto parts store. Caine poured all of his energy over the summer into building up this arcade, but he had no customers. That’s when the power of the Internet and its community surprised Caine one weekend… (watch the video!)

If you’re in Los Angeles, please go visit Caine and his rockin’ arcade. Especially since I can’t make it out there and I’m dying to go!

Here is where and when you can find him:
538 N Mission Rd., Boyle Heights, CA 90033
Saturdays 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Since he’s hit it big, Caine has some new ways you can reach him:
