Cheap Thrills

The Sherbs and I went to Dave & Buster's last night; for those not familiar with the chain, and too lazy to click the link (an aside: links are like footnotes. If you don't click on them, you miss the context, and sometimes the subtle jokes I make with linkage), it's a combination of TGI Friday's-style bar/restaurant and a Chuck E. Cheese's-style video arcade.

In short, it's a place where the Sherbs can play skee-ball, watch me "pwn" yakuza in Police 911 2 (note: the Sherbs does not love the run n' gun games), and then we can both go to a bar and get mixed drinks. In one Dave & Buster's (not the one we went to), there are switches next to some video game machines so you can have a drink delivered to your game. Because LA Machineguns (sadly, the link does not show the version at Dave & Buster's which has the rumbling floor pads beneath your feet so you shake with every explosion) is thirsty work.

So, the Sherbs had a "mocha espresso" martini with Starbuck's Espresso Liqueur and Godiva Chocolate Liqueur (I prefer Vermeer for chocolate liqueurs, personally) and I had a frozen beverage made of two kinds of flavored Malibu rum and piƱa colada mix and something that made it robin's-egg blue. Tasty.

And cheaper than expected.

Let it be known that if it wasn't for my hatred of gun games and superior trivia skills, we wouldn't have ever gotten the shot glass.
