It’s difficult to explain to people what Dave & Buster’s is. Their tagline is “Eat, Drink, Play” which is pretty accurate for a business that is part restaurant, part bar and part arcade. I visited the new Dave & Busters at 2201 N. Mayfair Road on a Thursday night, just days after its grand opening. Overheard on that night, was this exchange:
I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet and it could have been just THE thing to do on a chilly, gloomy Saturday, but based on my visit to Mayfair yesterday, the economy is going to recover just fine, thank you.
For no good reason, other than thinking it’s St. Patrick’s Day and everybody is at Mo’s, the family and I dined at the new McCormick & Schmick’s restaurant which opened their Mayfair location on Monday.
Friday, a friend and I spent the day shopping…at Brookfield Square. Yes, we cheated on Mayfair.
Imagine this: You’re knee-deep in shopping lists and you’re wracking your brain trying to figure out what to get your picky teenage daughter when suddenly, inspiration hits. You know exactly what to get her. Let’s say it’s a pair of stretch jeans The problem is where to find them.
