ATLANTA - You're never too old to spend a few hours in a video arcade -- especially if that arcade also features a menu of gourmet snacks and an extensive bar.
Kids can be kids and adults can be kids at Game-X, a 12,000-square foot arcade, eatery, and bar recently opened in the Centennial Olympic Park district of downtown Atlanta. Game-X is the latest project from Legacy Ventures Restaurants, which also operates downtown restaurants including Der Biergarten, Max's Coal Oven Pizzeria, and Ventanas. Game-X features more than 60 games, including Pac-Man Smash, a 10-foot high Connect 4, Dark Escape 4D, and NBA Hoops. The food menu includes "elevated" arcade favorites like burgers, hot dogs, and hot wings, and adults can enjoy specialty cocktails like the Georgia Peach Sangria or something from the list of a few dozen beers.
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken isn't exactly a Pinball Wizard, but he never turns down a chance to take on photographer Blaze Meier in an arcade challenge. They spent the morning at Game-X, checking out this new Atlanta attraction.
