No & yes... Back in those days it had 9' tables (AMF or Gold Crown... I was kinda young) and it closed down in the early to mid 80's. Then in the mid 90's it reopend with cheap home tables. It has evolved over the years into Valleys and now Diamonds.
The other place was Fairview Lanes just west a couple of blocks. It was turned into a few stores to complete the strip mall were it was located. The Octupus is still thriving in the same spot. There was a nightclub for a while in between called Maggie's Pub but that burned down!
