Chuck E. Cheese
My next birthday party is going to be a Chuck E. Cheese. Yesterday was my nephew ethan's third birthday. And since his brother just had a big party that involved planning and invitation and dozens of little kids, mom decided to throw a smaller party that involved little or no work. Chuck E. Cheese or CEC as was decided upon, the place where a kid can be a kid. For only $121 we had more than enough pizza, and drinks, for 7 adults and 2 kids. Plus we left with almost a whole pizza left over. On top of all that we also got 250 tokens. Now in Chuck E. Cheese, every single game costs only one token, so with 250 tokens we could all act like little kids, running around from game to game with no concern for the cost and not playing so many games that the "kids" are left bored after twenty minutes. We all played games for about three hours before running out of tokens it was great. Among my favorite games were skeeball, and 99 cents. Skeeball i am sure you all know how to play, but 99 cents was a game of luck and skill. You are given a rubber ball and you must roll it down a short ramp and try to get it down certain paths just big enough for the ball. there are about ten different paths which change in "amount" after each roll. the point of the game is to try and get as close to 99 cents without going over. The closer you get the more tickets you get. Colette and I played this game for quite a long time. So with that being said I want to be a kid again and have my next birthday at Chuck E. Cheese. So anyway Chuck E. Cheese is the place where a kid can be a kid and adults can be kids.
