|Sorry for picture quality...I had some issues with camera use tonight|
It was a good time. They closed down between 3-5pm to set all the games up for free play, and reopened with an age restriction of 21+ at 5pm. I got there a little later in the evening, though it didn't really start to get crowded until about 9:30pm. For only a $5 cover charge, it seemed like a pretty good deal.

All in all, it was definitely worth the $5 cover charge, and I would go to future events there. In addition to the free play evenings, they have comedy shows, gaming trivia challenges, karaoke, and guest DJs sprinkled in to keep things interesting.
The only down side to my evening was an education problem. Because I stayed downtown so long, I ended up missing the last train back to the park and ride that I stopped at, and had to walk a few miles at almost midnight. It was good exercise, the weather cooperated, and I never felt like I was in a bad part of town...but for a work night, it definitely extended the evening longer than I had hoped. The schedule has been noted, and I definitely won't be making that mistake again. I've even gotten a pointer on a better park and ride for future trips, just in case.
