Dr. Mario at Abari Game Bar
Where Are We In CLT?by Porter Metzler on April 30, 2020
Dr. Mario has some health advice to help get you through quarantine: 1.) Wash your hands. 2.) Grab a beer. 3.) Play 2 rounds of your favorite video game and call him in the morning.
This installation inspired by the 1990 puzzle video game Dr. Mario which featured everyone’s favorite Italian plumber trading in his overalls for a lab coat to fight off some fiendish viruses. Dr. Mario has recently opened his newest practice over in NoDa at Abari Game Bar, Charlotte’s first vintage game bar.
The bar is closed for the time being to adhere to the stay-at-home order but you can still support your friendly neighborhood barcade by purchasing Abari merch and gift cards on their online store or by watching their occasional video game live streams over on Twitch.
The piece was created and installed by the Charlotte-based design and fabrication shop 8Lincoln30.
