Games, Food and Girl Talk at Dave and Busters

Hi Friends! 

I recently had the pleasure of attending the sneak peek of the new Dave and Busters in Rogers, Arkansas.  It was my first time to go to a Dave and Busters, so I learned a lot and had so much fun.  My friend/photographer Holly joined me for the Thursday afternoon event.
    

For this enjoyable afternoon, I decided to mix prints. I wanted to be able to enjoy the games while being stylish.  I decided skinny jeans and my comfy booties were key items to wear. Pairing them with my striped top gave me the right amount of comfort mixed with style.   I chose this playful striped ruffle top from The Haley Boutique paired with black skinnies from Old Navy. I am obsessed with them. To accessorize, I added my favorite leopard bag from RiffRaff, and the tan booties I wear almost daily from Versona. I added my Kendra Scott cuff and statement earrings to complete the look.




Once we arrived and checked in, one of the managers gave us a tour of the place.  This location is a smaller foot print than some of the other Dave and Busters, but it still has all of the energy and atmosphere for a great experience.  We walked through the Million Dollar Midway first.  I learned that a lot of the games are made just for Dave and Busters. The company takes pride in keeping them clean and like new. They have the world’s largest Pac-Man. Now that sounds like a game I would enjoy! I grew up playing Pac-Man on my parents’ Atari.  Dave and Busters has two types of games, redemption games and simulator games, to appeal to a wider client base.  There are definitely games for everyone.   I had a blast with the basketball game and even won a prize out of the “The Big One.”





We checked out all the prizes in the winner circle next.  You can win anything from candy to big ticket items, such as a PS4, an Amazon Echo, Beats Headphones and more.  Your tickets do not expire, so saving them up for a big item would be my route! 


Later, we checked out the restaurant side of Dave and Busters. It is geared towards watching “the big game.”  The setup has a cocktail feel with a gorgeous bar and a ton of TVs.  Each TV can play a different channel which I think is so cool. Everyone will be able to watch the sporting event of their choice.  I can imagine cheering loudly for the Razorbacks or Chiefs while eating with my husband and friends.  It would be a blast!


The food was amazing and not just your typical bar food.  I am definitely a bit of a foodie. This is a place I would enjoy going back to and eating again.  They had a wide variety of options for everyone, but my personal favorite was the chicken and waffle sliders.  I mean, I can never pass up waffles!  I had a few other favorites on the menu too.  The BBBacon Burger has 3 types of bacon on it! Anyone that knows me well knows that I love bacon. The Ultimate Mac and Cheese was really good too. It had chicken and bacon in it and of course, lots of cheese. For dessert, I ate the Bananas Foster Pie. OMG, sooo yummy!  I should have gone back for a second piece.




To finish off the bar experience, we had them make some fun nonalcoholic drinks for us.   (It was the middle of the day, and we both had responsibilities to take care of afterwards. Lol.)  I had the Grape Candy Chill with creepy crawly gummy worms.  I loved the grape drink. The flavor was tasty and not too sweet. I definitely think every little kid will want one of these. We also had the Sno Globe.  It is a blue raspberry flavor with a light up ice cube! The entertaining part of this drink is that you can change the color that the ice cube lights up.  I’m pretty sure I need one of these ice cubes in my house to make all my drinks more fun.

Overall I had a wonderful afternoon playing games, eating food, and catching up with Holly.  I can totally see myself going back to Dave and Busters with my husband and friends for a fun night out.  Hope to see you there next time! 


XOXO,
