Bringing Fun to Fresno

I had been living under a rock because I had never been to a Dave & Buster's before.  When I heard it was coming to Fresno I was so excited about what I had heard from friends.  I was even more excited when I received the invitation to attend D&B's Media Event & VIP Day.  I had the honor of seeing a behind the scenes look of Dave & Buster's Fresno by meeting the General & Kitchen Manager as well as a private tour of the facility.  I also was able to sip the funnest cocktails, eat the yummiest food, and play some of the most fun games.


Dave & Buster's is larger than life when you walk in the front doors.  It felt like a piece of Las Vegas had landed in Fresno.  It's a high end sports bar and an amped up adult version of John's Incredible Pizza.  I loved the atmosphere from the decor to the lighting.  I was extra inspired by the photography throughout the restaurant which included local pieces of art that were stunning.



D &B can accommodate almost 1400 people between the bar, bar dining area, dining room, private event rooms, and game floor with over 30,000 square feet of fun.  Although you could stop for a quick bite to eat (the food is good enough on it's own) you'd be missing out on the whole experience.  Dave & Buster's offers a la carte options or packages for you to make the most of your visit.
I see this as the perfect spot for a date night- please forget the boring dinner and a movie!  It's also great for a group of friends looking for a fun night.  Fresno corporate events can take on a whole new level.  D & B offers Fresno something it never had before- Food & Fun all rolled into one!



Guests can choose from over 140 latest and greatest games as well as the classics.  Every summer Dave & Buster's brings in almost a dozen new games to keep things fresh.  I loved the variety of games and even they seemed larger than life.  One of my favorite arcade games is air hockey but traditional air hockey falls flat in Dave & Buster's.  D&B takes everything up a notch; in this case with Quad Air.  It's air hockey with four players and four pucks.  Fun is an understatement!



Some of my favorites to play were Quad Air, ski ball, Beer Pong, Connect Four, Let's Make a Deal and the racing motorcycles.  A memorable moment from the day was when two of my fellow bloggers and I got on the motorcycles and we look over and miss model Rema of Jewelry and Jeans is sitting like this on the bike.... (Only she would naturally sit like this and pull it off, lol!)


We eventually convinced her to sit correctly to play!

Me, Family, Food, and Furniture, and Jewelry & Jeans.


Like I said, D & B has taken everything up a notch.  The Winner's Circle is extensive and worthwhile.  Prizes include clothing, Xboxes, iPads, and Beats by Dre.


After getting our share of fun and games we worked up an appetite and good thing we did.  The food is over the top and delish!


The menu includes items (shown below) like the Caveman Combo, Hottie Burger, Fives All Around Appetizer Platter, 3 Cheese Grilled Cheese Sticks, Tenderloin Pasta with Bacon wrapped Shrimp & Fried Spinach, Buffalo Wing Burger, The Lawnmower salad, and Bananas Fosters Pie.  This is just a tiny sampling of the entire menu; the options seem endless.








If you didn't have enough options to eat you're sure to find something to quench your thirst.  The spirits at Dave & Buster's again were over the top and super exciting.  Forget my vodka soda that I usually order; that is way too boring.  I ordered the watermelon snow cone which is right up my alley but also tried several of the other options which were Coronarita, Glow Cone, Over Under Shot, Mega Mojito, Sailor's Spiked Rootbeer, Tiki Mai Tai, and Red Bull Cocktail.  These are just a few of the extra fun drinks that are offered.




Looking for a deal? Dave & Buster's offers weekly specials that you won't be able to refuse.  2 for Tuesday is 2 free game plays, $2 Taco's, $2 Dos Equis Bottles, $ Margaritas.  Games are half off on Wednesdays and you can find drink specials on Thirsty Thursdays.


I love a company that gives back to its community.  Dave & Buster's has partnered with Make-A-Wish and with every $1 that you donate you get $10 in free game play.  That's a win-win.


We were invited back during the evening for their VIP event and it was exciting to see the energy in the building.  Over 1000 Fresnans joined D &B for their soft opening and everyone was exhilarated.  We had more fun eating, drinking, and playing games.







You need to check out all the fun yourself!  Don't miss the grand opening tomorrow, Monday October 17th.
