A birthday party at Dave & Busters – I started feeling anxiety almost as soon as I walked into this place. Noise, blinking lights, children, etc. Fortunately, they serve adult beverages.
As a kid, I really loved arcades. My parents took me and some friends to an arcade once for my birthday and I remember spending the whole time playing Dragon’s Lair, feeding 50 cents into the machine over and over again. I got pretty good at it too.
I’m just not into it now. Part of the problem is that the games are garbage now. They are also expensive as hell and several dollars worth of credits don’t result in much play time. Eh… and I have turned into a germaphobe, so I really don’t want to even touch these machines unless I have a few antibacterial wipes on hand.
But anyway, here are some shots from that day.
