sigdiamond2000: Judging by the fact that I've lived in two smallish towns that each had bars with this exact same business model, I can only assume that there a dozens (at least) of these kinds of bars all over the country.Why is this all of a sudden news? Is this one of those "if it hasn't happened on the East Coast yet, it hasn't happened" things?

Pocket Ninja: There is absolutely no chance that within a very short time of opening they'll be missing key pieces to every single game.
DoBeDoBeDo: There are bars in the DC suburbs that do this now and have for years. Carpool in reston has Jenga, Connect Four, and some others.
FishyFred: That's why I'm going on Friday: I want to crush my SO at Connect Four before they lose the pieces.
ArkAngel: I can't imagine the kind of answers I'd give playing Scattergories when I was hammered
Andrew Wiggin: they had one of these bars on bar rescue. it looked a mess.
indylaw: Similar trivial pursuits have had a checkered history. Not really a place to take the little munchkin.
swaxhog: Certainly won't be a pick up bar with all the hungry, hungry hippos around.
SageC: DC area, huh? Bet there's one piece of the game they're missing...[3.bp.blogspot.com image 264x264]
I_Can't_Believe_it's_not_Boutros: There was a coffee shop/bar with this model in Tallahassee twenty years ago--cards and boardgames just stuck on the shelf when people came in. And that place was packed all the damn time. You had to get there by about 8 to get a table, and, until midnight, tables would rarely be open for more than a few minutes.After a couple of years of making a boatload of money, the owner decided that the cards and games weren't being taken care of, so he put them behind the counter and started charging people to play them. I believe he lasted a couple of months before he closed up.
