Founded in 1998, Main Event Entertainment is a Dallas-based company that today operates nine "family entertainment centers" scattered around Texas. The Plano location features 34 bowling lanes, more than a dozen pool tables, shuffleboard, laser tag and a massive arcade. While the kids are running around the arcade waving tickets between playing skee ball, air hockey or the latest version of Dance Dance Revolution, the chaperones can hang out at the full-service bar and café. Bartenders say pitchers of beer are popular with the bowlers and billiards folks, and the pizza and burgers are the most popular munchies. Also, this Main Event boasts some 2,000 square feet of banquette spaces that can be rented out for various events.
