Dispatches From uWink

I promised that I’d have a few videos up from our visit to uWink once Revver processed them — so here they are!

First up, Revver’s resident Python genius TV peruses the menu and plays around with the options. I don’t think he ever ordered that chicken sandwich tho…

Next up, Bino plays a quick tile matching game. He was playing on the “expert” setting, so don’t hold the loss against him, okay?

I’ve also upped some photos from the evening over at Flickr. Feel free to check out the set when you’ve got a second.

Pulled Pork And Pong

The dinner at uWink last night was an absolutely outstanding time as well as a decent meal. I mean, the food was as much a topic of discussion as the kiosks and games were. Granted, making it out to Woodland Hills was quite a task for a few of us, but everyone who came seemed to have a blast — I know I did.

Thanks to Brent and Nolan Bushnell for letting the lot of us play with their very promising beta of an eatery. Hopefully they prove successful enough to spread far and wide.

P.S. BarCamper Douglas Welch was nice enough to tip me off to his interview with Nolan. Give it a listen!
P.P.S. I should have some videos of the ordering systems and one of the games up on Revver soon. Once they get approved, I’ll be sure to link them here.

If you have any feedback no the product, please let me know… We are always open to suggestions on how to improve the product and are actively working on refining the experience as I type this!
