Peek at Dave & Buster's



It's around the time, shortly after I got my card stuck in the Miss Pac Man machine and when the staff started clapping and singing and the flashing Green Ghost cocktail kicked in, along with all the noise and lights, that I broke out in a cold sweat.

Yup, Dave & Buster's.

On Thursday, the arcade/restaurant chain hosted a media day for its first location in Memphis.

The spot, on Germantown Parkway near the Wolfchase Mall, is set to open to the public on Monday.
The food is pretty good, with options for vegetarians. We sampled a really good spicy rice, some fatty (and delicious) fries, and a good vegetarian lasagne.

We also got a couple of the "Glow Kone" drinks, which feature plastic flashing ice cubes. I saved mine for later use. The Green Ghost is Crown Royal Regal Apple whisky, Smirno ® Green Apple vodka, Monin® Granny Smith Apple, sweet ‘n’ sour and Sprite. It's very sweet and tastes like a sour apple jolly rancher. Enticing.

I would say Dave & Buster's isn't for nervous types. There are a lot of lights and a lot of noise, and your enjoyment level depends on how much you like games. If you like 'em, you'll love D&B.

Companies can hold parties and retreats at Dave & Buster's. And the games, which include bowling games and horror games and everything in between, gets changed up from time to time.
