This guy will get a slap on the wrist, meanwhile, according to the courts I can't come within 500 feet of one.

After what you did to the Skee-ball? You should consider yourself lucky.

Looking like I do, it's hard to get a table for one at Chuck-E-Cheese

The one nearest to me sells not only beer, but also wine, out of a tap like the beer no less. Not sure that I would EVER want to drink generic Chuck E. Cheese wine out of a tap, but maybe someone does.

Out of business?

I thought they were doing pretty good, what with the ol' standard:

"$10 of tokens results in 5 cents worth of plastic spiders and stickers ."

Seems like a pretty good profit margin.

I don't know, I have fond memories of the place. Yep, beer and "pizza"....and watching my boys then 5 and 6 having the time of their lives running everywhere. It's a casino for kids. It's cheap so it attracts some bad elements, but it was all that I could afford to do (Step outside for a quick "smoke" and go back in and watch the band!) . So, yeah, kinda scuzzy places, but I loved every minute I spent with my kids at Chucky Cheese.

I have to say, I have a 3yo niece who loves the place she calls it chucky's house, and i take her there once or twice a year, usually with my other nieces and nephews. I enjoy helpingn them ride the rides and my mom/her granny enjoys it, and if someone else is paying the salad bar aint too shabby. it's not bad for 3 or 4 hours once in a while just to see her smile like that.

Wait, wait, wait. There are Chuck E. Cheeses that sell beer??? The ones near me do not. My kids are missing out - if i had a few cold ones they could play for longer than the usual 15 minutes it takes me to exceed my "other people's kids running around like lunatics" stress threshold.

Our CEC doesn't sell beer anymore. They took the ball pit out too. Wonder why...

/refuse to take the kidlettes there unless it's someone else's b-day party and they're feeding us
//at least they still have skee-ball and air hockey

Hi, black parent here. My daughter is only 3 months old, but I've already decided that she'll never go to Chuck E. Cheese. Everything I've ever heard about the place is negative.

Good for you.

It's kind of weird, and a lot of people have discussed it on many sites (some blatantly racist, others stating legitimate curiosity.)

I live in a fairly white area (wikipedia says 85 percent white.) There's a Chuck E. Cheese right next to a Barnes and Noble here. If you drive by that Chuck E. Cheese on a weekend night, there is literally a line of black people waiting to get inside, not joking.

I'm kind of curious myself how it turned out to be so popular for blacks, when it wasn't like 10 or 15 years ago.

Left pondering about race relations.

Honestly...I have no idea why black folks tend to choose certain restaurant chains as our own. Red Lobster, TGI Fridays, Joe's Crab Shack, and Cheesecake Factory are the first ones that come to mind. I've discussed this with friends and no one really knows why.

Reminds me of the Dave Chappelle skit where he asked why black people smoke menthols. I have no idea...we just do.

Well, I mean, it's not like white people don't like some of the same things en bloc either, just no one tends to notice since white people are more populous, I suppose.

Does it bother anyone else that a place---that invites parents to drive their kids there, sells beer?

I mean, sooner or later the kids HAVE to get in the car with the parents... and they are serving said parents booze?

Now, I'm all for social responsibility, but think of the average parent that takes their kids to CEC.
