No more chucky headaches, as we used to call them.  Wish this had happened about 20 yrs ago when my kids were little

Subby, you do of course realize that "bankruptcy" in many cases, including this one, doesn't mean "out of business", right?

I know of an older Farker I haven't seen a while who might be upset.  I forget his handle.

This is surprising?

Considering their business model is cramming a lot of children (and their parents) into a facility that often receives a mediocre cleaning from the underpaid, with lots of surfaces that those kids run around and touch, while serving them mediocre pizza and drinks... yeah it wasn't going to survive a pandemic.

I disagree, the stories of low class brawls erupting from CEC were hilariously valuable.

Might not be bad if you're self isolating.  On the other hand it may drive you to a multi-state killing spree.

CEC was acquired by private equity firm Apollo Global Management (APO) in 2014 for $1.3 billion.

You fools! Don't you know what this will do? Those animatronic band members will be set loose from the restaurants to roam the land! What have you done?!?! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE??!?!?!

Dude, the Hepatitis industry will take a serious hit. If something happened to Guy Fieri and Kid Rock, that industry would collapse.

(They barely bounced back after Pamela Anderson was cured).

Has anyone mentioned this yet? Because it always makes me smile a bit :)

This little boy is going to be even sadder.  Maybe this is Fake News.

From the Wikipedia page: Chuck E. Cheese is a soon-to-be defunct chain of American restaurants and entertainment centers.

I've still got a sack of Aladdin's Castle Tokens ready

Probably Dave and Busters.

/stopped going when kids were allowed in much earlier, since I can't get drunk in good conscience around kids.
//...also, kids are annoying and I would likely end up as a Fark headline for smacking one.

Proof that despite the pandemic, robots aren't doing all the work.

This is what happens in the restaurant business when you fail to address your giant rat problem.

I give them credit with the stealth mode "Pasquallys pizza and wings" restaurant takeouts that have been popping up on ordering apps that are really coming from the kitchen of CEC.

Somewhere in Florida, Aaron Fechter is laughing like a Bond villain.
