Chuck E. Cheese & Birthdays

Kids love Chuck E. Cheese. Really love it. In fact so much, my three year old Nephew Ryan wanted to have his birthday party there. So on Saturday, June 14th we headed into Ventura to hold his 3rd birthday party at the Chuck E. Cheese there. It had been 6 years since my last visit to Chuck E. Cheese for my niece's birthday party.

For many of those without children, Chuck E. Cheese represents utter chaos. Children running crazy, misbehaving, and a lot of parents not keeping a close eye on their kids. However, for kids -- a lot of freedom, games to play, and pretty much free roam on a restaurant.

And for me, Chuck E. Cheese is a relatively fun place. I love carnival games, video games, and especially the basketball game. In fact, I am pretty darn good at Super Shot Basketball -- in classic mode -- if I might say so myself. I have scored over 100 points in a game at Dave & Busters and scored twice in the 60's range during this visit to Chuck E. Cheese. My niece especially was happy -- my shots ended up winning her a couple hundred extra tickets to buy fun stuff.

In all, it was a crazy but fun time at Chuck E. Cheese. Once every few years is definitely plenty for me.

On a side note, I found their beer policy to be odd -- not to mention the fact they even offer it. Chuck E. Cheese will limit you to 1 drink (beer or wine) per hour and they take your drivers license from you for about 5 minutes if you are sitting down while they verify you in the back. Seems like a rampant opportunity for ID theft. Crazy.

Here are a few additional pictures from the festivities:
