Where a Kid can be Kid

on February 23, 2012

Today my toddler and I went on a field trip to Chuck E. Cheese.  I can hear the collective groan already.  But…we’re parents and we’ll suck it up for our kids.  If you’ve never been to Chuck E. Cheese, it’s a restaurant with an indoor playground and arcade.  Actually, if you go on a weekday, it’s not too bad.  However, on the weekends, it is total chaos!   Maybe if you’re mentally prepared for it, it won’t be so bad.  Chuck E. Cheese has hosted many of my son’s birthday parties.  Why?  Because they take all the work out of planning a party and the kids love it!  Besides a party venue, they also offer some fun ideas as a reward for your children.  I know my son will be more motivated to complete his tasks if he knows there’s a trip to CEC in the horizon.  If a trip is looming in your horizon, keep an eye out for coupons in your Sunday paper.

And since we’re talking about Chuck E. Cheese, I have to mention John’s Incredible Pizza.  John’s Incredible Pizza is located in Buena Park and is Chuck E. Cheese on steroids.  They have arcade games, bowling and even rides!  The main difference between the two is that you can only gain admission into John’s if you purchase their buffet.  It’s an All-You-Can-Eat buffet so you could actually spend the whole day there if you want.

Last but not least, both of these establishments serve beer so that should numb the pain a little.  Enjoy!
