We went to this place called Settlers Cafe after dinner today, and it was reeeeally fun. You go in, get a table, order drinks, food, and a board game. Yes, a board game. Or a card game. Basically you pay a flat rate for drinks (soft drinks, coffees, teas, ice cream floats) and snacks and however many games you want. And you can play Cranium or Halli Galli or Pictionary or Settlers of Catan or whatever for however long you want, and you can press a button on your table to get a server who will come to take your order/ bring you another game/ teach you a new game/ etc. It was such an interesting cafe! Everyone was just playing silly games and drinking coffee and laughing and having a good time. Great atmosphere... a cafe full of smoke-free, pretension-free, guilt-free, care-free FUN.
I think it's an awesome idea. I'll definitely be going back.
