Play retro arcade games
Release your inner-child/aggressive competitor at any one of the newer arcade bars that have hit the scene. Ready Player One near Greektown has some 40 machines, including 10 old-school pinball arcades. You and your beau can jam out to Ms. Pac-Man, Tetris, even Mario Kart on Nintendo 64 -- all with adult beverages on hand. If you’ve found yourself meeting up at Checker Bar, mosey on upstairs, where Offworld Arcade, partnered with Pop Pizza, also offers an array of vintage arcade games. Lastly, there’s Punch Bowl Social, where arcade games, bowling, darts, and board games all meet under one roof. You can have quite the time without ever really having to sit through those awkward silences.
