One quiet afternoon at home can become a noisy one with an invitation from their daddy to visit Neighborhood Game Café.
What are the ways families bond? What family activities can they do together?
- Travel and tour.
- Enjoy food together.
- Watch a family movie.
- Make an art or craft project.
- Play board games.
- Play with their pets.
- Swim together.
- Make sandcastles, or sandwiches.
The parking lot was almost full, save for one spot; the tables were almost filled up, save for one at the corner. Both were meant for our family. 🙂
We joined in the cacophony of conversation, laughter, clinking of cutlery on dishes and loud clatter of plastic & board games on the wooden table.
Checks go to enjoying food together…
Clockwise from top left: chocolate lava French toast, S’mores pancake, mango float pancake, banana caramel pancake, and Matcha Oreo pancake (my fave!!!). All pancakes come with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Not pictured are the kids’ other breakfast fares, like SPAM, eggs, hash brown, sausages.
…And playing board games.
We played games like Mouse Stacks Cheese, Nab It! and Don’t Rock The Boat.
The white shelf stood on attention upon entry. It held all the games arranged according to level of difficulty. Where do you think the easiest games to play are placed?
If you say the bottommost and the layer immediately above it, then you are correct! That way, my kids, who are still young, can choose for themselves. Teenagers or grown-ups can play more advanced games like a GoT board game.
The place is small, but cozy. The food is a little pricey, but that’s understandable since we were there for hours. Some games have missing pieces or instructions. My hubby said that he wished there was a game master; one who knows how to play ALL the games, on stand by to help the customers who are clueless. Like a librarian, perhaps. 😆
These are what I loved about visiting Neighborhood Game Café.
- We got to try different games, because at home we only have Bingo, Jenga, and Boggle. Sometimes, we get tired of playing them again and again.
- Yay for eating breakfast food for dinner! We got a change-up of routine. And I think that is good for the sanity. 😉
- Bonding, of course! Even if we didn’t get to go out-of-town for the weeklong vacation, we had the chance to do something different. I’m happy to see other families do the same.
Would you visit Neighborhood Game Café when you get the chance? Why or why not?
