Revisit Your Vintage Video Games
Still holding onto some old TV games? Revisit your childhood by arranging a vintage video game-a-thon. Who knows? You may pull out some tricks and be the Donkey Kong, King’s Quest or Super Mario Bros titleholder!

Go to the Games Arcade
Have the vintage games whet your appetite for more? Head on out to your local games arcade to keep on playing! Embrace the freedom and joy of acting like a kid again & enjoy a go kart or bumper car ride, or even a round of darts or tenpin bowling.
Catch a Late Night Movie
Still awake? End off the night by catching the late night movie at your local cinema. It’s not often you get to stay out late, so make the most of it! Maybe you’ll get to see the latest action, horror or thriller you’ve been dying to watch. While you’re at it and your wife’s not watching, order the extra large popcorn and Cola!
