CEC--More fights than a bike bar

Yes, that would be Chuck E. Cheese I'm referring to.

In Dauphin County, PA, police were called to a local CEC a dozen times last year to break up fights (http://www.wgal.com/cnn-news/18434027/detail.html)

In Brookfield Wisconsin, the CEC gets more calls for police to break up fights than the biker bar just down the street. (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122878081364889613.html)

In Milwaukee, a town councilman is trying to revoke the beer/liquor license from CEC based on police calls and constituent complaints. In response that franchise hired ARMED guards for the facility. Cuz CEC is where you want men with guns.....

I rest my long-standing case that Chuck E. Cheese is a place of evil and to be avoided at all costs. (okay, not THAT bad, but my keen desire to never step foot in the place again is now justified :)

ROFL! I am ashamed to admit that I am addicted to both pizza and skeeball, so I actually have a rather decent time there when it's not crowded. :-) The only thing I don't like is that you USED to be able to get decent prizes, and now you can't get squat for your tickets. When I was little I got my mom a music box for Mother's Day with 300 tickets (it still works and is actually quite pretty). Now for 300 tickets you can get, what, an inflatable bat and some stickers? Highway robbery.

Just from everyone's stories, I'm very glad there isn't a CEC anywhere in the near vicinity.

Those places are horrible. I remember one friend tried to tell me that now that I had a kid, it would be necessary for me to spend time there. Ha!

I'm going to have to play closer attention the next time I go to CEC. I swear I've never seen beer or wine there before, but then again it never occurred to me to look.
