How does technology keep you in the loop throughout the day?

Technology doesn’t keep me in the loop. Our favorite family pizza place does…

But is it as good as that place where we used to get the grinders?

We never had a 'pizza place', per se, but we did many birthday parties at Chucky Cheese. For my boys, especially, about the age of 8 and 9, the idea of having a group of their (loud, rowdy,active) friends in my house was something I couldn't do!!

I got very proficient at it. Several weeks before said birthday, I would begin scouting coupons for Chuckie's. We'd invite 4 or 5 boys, plus the sister and brother, and pick a day. I'd pick up everybody in my van (if you pick up, they'll be on time and you then get to drop off when you're done, not have to wait for a Mom to come).

We'd get there as they opened at 9, before the crowds. I'd use my coupons to purchase game tickets for all the kids and I'd pick a booth as "home base". The kids would be given 5 or 6 tickets to start with and off they'd go. I'd keep an eye on where they were from my booth (much easier early in the morning). They'd come back from time to time for more tickets, and I'd dole them out, reminding them how many there were left. When they were on their last batch of tickets. I'd go order the pizza and drinks with more coupons.If anyone went through their tickets before the others, they could sit at the booth, or go play in the free ballpit. and/or climbing cubes. Once the pizza arrived, everybody was called to the table and we 'partied'. Pizza was 'scarfed', drinks downed and Gifts were opened, and the party was over! By this time, the place was starting to get full and NOISY, but we were on our way OUT! Worked very well!!

I love Chuckie Cheese. But, I must say you are braver than I am...
