Can a former Chuck E. Cheese really be the next big thing in coworking? We explore Aryeh Bookbinder’s remarkable journey from nostalgic family fun center to the innovative “Fever Dream Coworking” space in Toronto. At just 25, Aryeh has taken a bold step in transforming a beloved childhood venue into a unique, productive environment that blends work with play. We’ll dive into how this quirky space, complete with pizza and coffee for $45 a pop, has captivated the interest of over 100 professionals, and hear from Adam Pratt in “Arcade Corner” about the untapped potential for similar setups in arcades and Family Entertainment Centers.

Shifting gears, we’ll bring you the latest buzz from the arcade gaming world. Get the lowdown on LAI Games’ adrenaline-pumping off-road racer, Smash or Smash DX, and our firsthand impressions of its thrilling motion features. Plus, we’ll take you to the IAAPA Expo Asia in Bangkok, spotlighting the Nova Blast home-bound cabinet by Unico USA. To wrap up, learn about Disney Springs’ new guest shipping station, an innovative service that’s making it easier for Walt Disney World visitors to send their magical purchases straight home. This episode is packed with creative ideas and the latest gaming updates you won’t want to miss!
