Today, we had a sneak peek of the new venue, Game Plan Entertainment, in South Austin. They’re having an open house on February 20th, so mark your calendar! (Consider this your invitation.) I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not “big” on video games, but this place is awesome! Giant Jenga, Giant Connect Four, bean bag chairs, old school Atari, Asteroids, Pac-Man, Mario Brothers, Duck Hunt, SkeeBall, Foosball, Air Hockey, Golden Tee, and every new top-of-the line gaming systems that can network up to 8 players while they sit in a swanky gaming room with couches and cocktail tables are just some of the great features of this place. It is available to rent for private events, and the games are “free play” – you read that correctly: NO TOKENS. How much do you spend at D&B or Main Event when you go? I know that we can easily spend at least $50 per person on games alone. Game Plan Ent. rents for $299 for 2 hours and up to 15 people (except Friday and Saturday nights.) It’s $100 for each additional hour. You can bring in your own food and drinks (TABC certified bartenders are required if you bring alcohol.) Friday and Saturday night buyouts are $1,800. They have stereo systems that you can use with your iPod and enough screens to show any video, slideshow, or presentation you could dream of. Clearly, The Fairy Godmothers had fun, and Dave with DCM Photography caught us in the act.
