Since word broke of ping-pong bar/restaurant chain Spin's plans to locate here last summer, many have waited with childlike impatience for its arrival. We grew tired of the cocktail list at Urban Putt and bored with the arcade game selection at Brewcade. But now the wait for Spin is over according to Inside Scoop.

For those unfamiliar: When she isn't campaigning for Bernie Sanders or going to Burning Man, actor Susan Sarandon is similarly serving as a backer and figurehead for Spin, a chain that's in heavy expansion mode after starting in New York seven years back.

Here in San Francisco, you'll find Spin inside SoMa's MetroMile building. That cool space, incidentally, was a parking structure before Boston Properties hired architect Charles Bloszies to build it out, as the Business Times wrote in 2014.

Anyone can book one of 19 ping-pong tables at Spin ($19-$29 for 30 minutes, $29-$49 for an hour), or else spectate for free and lounge at the bar or on sofas. There's plenty to enjoy: The space includes a DJ booth, a full drinks and food menu, and walls decorated by murals from local and popular artists.

And, before you puritans call Spin "frivolous," note that the company is partnering with GLIDE to provide ping pong tables to schools and host charitable events.

While tomorrow night, the evening of 10th, Spin will be closed for a private event — Bat Mitzvah or IPO? —  a grand opening for the public is planned for the 19th.

Of course, it's possible ping pong won't excite us forever. Fortunately, there's more good news on the horizon. We have another arcade bar, Coin-Op Gameroom, to look forward to, and another arcade bar, Emporium to look forward to, too.

Spin - 690 Folsom Street (at Third Street), 11 a.m. to midnight on Sunday and Monday, 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, and 11 a.n. to 2 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.
