An Evening at Gameworks

Eugene and I were planning to go to ComedySportz tonight, but the early show was sold out, and we're too old to stay up for the late one. ;) He didn't feel like seeing The DaVinci Code tonight (though we may at some point), so instead we decided to visit Gameworks. This was the first time we'd been to one. It was a big place: two levels of various games ranging from air hockey to pinball to lots and lots of arcade games. Despite the smoke (there's a bar/restaurant inside), we wandered around for a while, playing such things as air hockey, pinball, Donkey Kong, Mario Kart, and Ms.Pacman. We spent the most time playing Skeeball; I got very lucky and made the trick shot worth the most points. (Of course, I also missed and got the lowest amount of points more often.) We collected over 200 tickets altogether, but we decided to keep them instead (since we might go back once a month or so) of taking one of the smaller prizes. I saw one of the McFarlane collectible Beatle dolls (the cartoon one of John) that I'd love to get; hopefully no one else claims it before I earn the thousands of tickets for it. Eugene had his eyes on a poker set. We'll see who ends up claiming the prize. ;)
