Remember the good old Atari days? Do you miss smacking the small white dot from the left to the right side of your tube television. Do you miss games like Flappy Bird? The world is moving from big screen television sets to smart phones and tablets, but some are going back to the arcades.
Christopher and Michelle Hall decided to leave the medical field to pursue their passions: video games, clothing and jewelry.
The 33-year-old couple will celebrate the grand opening of their new business venture this Saturday, March 1. "We have a huge library of games," Christopher said. "These are the classics people don't usually have anymore." Christopher says gamers will be able to play their old favorite Atari, NES, SNES, N64, Playstation, PS2 and Xbox games on the televisions from the era the console was popular. There's a gaming room for large parties and gatherings, and a full snack bar.
There will also be clothing, jewelry and crafty nicknacks. Michelle says there will be Magic The Gathering and board game nights.
Gamers will have to pay a $5 hourly flat fee to play any game system. The fee also covers arcade games that don't require quarters.
There will be a Mario Kart tournament on the grand opening from noon to 2 a.m. $5 access all day game-room special. There will be free pizza and cupcakes, according to the Facebook page.
