I was on the internet looking for things to do to entertain the kid’s over the holidays and was checking out Main Event’s web site and was so excited to see that Main Event is bringing back their New Year’s Eve All You Can Play packages again this year!
Our family went last year for the first time and had such a good time we talked about it for days.
It was nice to be able to celebrate as a family for a change. For years, my husband and I have had to find a sitter (not an easy feat for New Year’s Eve!), book reservations for dinner or a hotel party or go to a local watering hole to celebrate. Every place was always over-crowded, over-priced and underwhelming and we spent the night feeling guilty that we weren’t home to blow noisemakers, hoot n’ holler and celebrate with the kids.
Not last year. Last year was a blast! I found it on a whim one day when I was once again looking for fun things to do as a family. It was just a few days before New Year’s Eve and I panicked that it would be sold out, but when I called Main Event the friendly voice on the other end of the line assured me that no advance purchase or reservations were necessary, just come and have a great time.
We went and bowled a few games and the kids went and played laser tag while my husband and I enjoyed an adult beverage and shot a game of pool. We all went down to the arcade and played some video games and then everyone picked their favorite activity and we did each as a family. It was really nice!!
We then sat down for a meal and were really impressed by the variety and quality of the food. The kids got chicken fingers and pizza, my husband devoured the ribs, while I had flatbread and a salad.
Another thing I loved about celebrating at Main Event, and I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I loved that fact that I didn’t have to get my hair done and buy an expensive dress and wear painful high heels. I was able to have a casual evening with the family and really enjoy myself.
Well all that said, I guess you don’t have to guess too hard where you’ll find our family this year on New Year’s Eve. You guessed it…we’ll be ringin’ it in the right way at Main Event Entertainment.
