‘Eat, bowl and play’ strikes up in Alpharetta



ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Main Event Entertainment kicked off the summer with their grand opening celebration on Wednesday, June 25.

The 87,000-square-foot building was open for the public to come “eat, bowl and play.”

Main Event, 10700 Davis Drive, offers 24 bowling lanes, regulation-size billiards, laser tag, an inside ropes course and more than 100 video and arcade games.

The grand opening included free game passes and a food buffet.

The additional amenities were also open.

“We are so excited and so ready to finally be open,” bar manager Barthou Eugene said.

“I have been waiting for this day to come for three months now.”

The facility also has a full restaurant and bar inside with over 100 different liquors.

Public relations coordinator Amanda Ray said there are 15 flat screen televisions in the bar area that are always on the sports channels.

“There is something for everyone to do here, which is nice,” Ray said. “If the kids want to go play games, there is definitely quite a bit of entertainment for the adults as well.”

Main Event offers a “party street” for birthday parties and two private “playrooms” for groups and corporate events.

Charles Good, general manager, said the rooms are equipped with brand new technology.

“There is an outlet in each room that allows a flash drive to be plugged right up,” he said. “People who want to show slideshows at meetings and events won’t even have to bring a computer.”

Prior to the grand opening, Main Event received $2,500 as a financial gift.

Main Event matched this amount and all of the money will be donated to the Boys and Girls Club in metro Atlanta.

Main Event will be hosting another large celebration on July 11-12.

Additional entertainment will take place over these two days.

Good said there will be even more entertainment than the facility already offers.

Main Event is offering a “summer fun pass” through Sept. 1 that includes all-you-can-play bowling, laser tag, ropes course and billiards for a standard, discounted price.
