Go Out and Play at Dave & Buster's
Advice for the soon-to-be-wed: play games with your friends, not in your relationship! Hit the Million Dollar Midway at Dave & Buster's for arcade games (both classic and super cool), play billiards and watch sports on one of their massive HDTVs with epic stadium sound. The food is super fun (mountain o nachos anyone?) and there's an impressive selection of beers and mixed drinks. Uber over and have some fun.
