What if your summer drinks could be as exciting as your favorite arcade games? Join us as we explore Main Event’s new summer drink lineup, featuring the unique twist of freeze-dried candies like Skittles. We brainstorm creative ways to incorporate these trendy treats into non-alcoholic beverages and the special Splasherita for adults. The conversation doesn’t stop there – we dive into innovative drink combinations, like the irresistible alcoholic root beer floats, and consider the possibilities of using the popular Ninja Creamy gadget at home for even more fun. Plus, don’t miss our thoughts on the latest NBA Superstars arcade game, highlighted by Adam Pratt from Arcade Heroes, which is a must-try this summer.

Ever wondered how dining with strangers could transform your social life? Discover the intriguing concept of Dinner by Five, an app by Time Left that brings strangers together over meals to foster meaningful connections. We brainstorm how this idea could revolutionize social experiences in entertainment venues like bowling alleys and even serve as a fresh approach to dating. Finally, we shine a spotlight on Rally Pickleball’s tech-savvy venue in Charlotte, North Carolina. Inspired by Topgolf, Rally uses gamification, inclusive avatars, and advanced ball-tracking systems to create a one-of-a-kind pickleball experience. Brought to life by two female partners with a passion for tennis, Rally aims to balance work and play in their flagship social hub.
