Local media was invited Thursday morning to a preview of Dave & Buster’s, a new restaurant and video game arcade opening at 1174 Roseville Parkway, in The Fountains. General manger Brandon Ball gave the media and other guests a tour of the 17,000-square-foot establishment that offers a wide variety of dining, full-service bar and Dave & Buster’s signature centerpiece – The Million Dollar Midway and its more than 200 games. Classic video games such as Space Invaders and Centipede can be found among modern-day favorites Guitar Hero and Dance Dance Revolution. People playing the games earn tickets, which can later be redeemed for prizes. Prizes range from stuffed animals to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game consoles. Roseville’s Dave & Buster’s will have its grand opening 11:30 a.m., Monday, May 3. Ball said that his establishment has hired more than 160 men and women from the area. Started in 1982 and based out of Dallas, Tex., there are more than 60 Dave & Buster’s restaurants across the county. You can read more about in the Press Tribune’s Wednesday edition. ~ Brad Smith
