Rainy Day Fun
On a recent visit to Hartford, my plans for the day got rained out. I came up with the ideahttps://www.daveandbusters.com/locations/manchester of playing some billiards. With that thought in mind I did a Google search for a local place. Dave and Busters came up on the top of the search so entered it into the my GPS and pointed my car in that direction.
Parking was plentiful as it is located in mall parking lot although separate from the mall itself. Upon entering you are inundated with the sounds of arcade machines. Two clerk stations are right inside the door. I went to one and asked about the cost of a billiard table and was informed that this Dave and Buster has no billiard tables.
I decided to check out the place and see what there is to do. There is a bar for anyone who is interested in imbibing. It was early in the day so I had no interest in eating.
I did on the other hand choose to check out the arcade. I am a video game player, have been for a long time, and I had hoped to see some games to play. Saddly I was disappointed here as well. Lots of coin drop games and other games of chance that earn you tickets to save towards tiered prizes.
Dave and Busters uses a card system for paying for games, you load a card with money, money is converted into credits on the card. Put the card into a game and have credits removed from the card. I find that this method gets you playing and can get you spending a lot more than you want or expect to.
The arcade area is more focused towards younger children, the bar is for the adults to hang at while their kids play.
Some day I may find a Dave and Busters that does have billiards, but if you are headed here for some then find another location.
