Fed up with waiting in line to buy that new Nintendo Wii? Check out tonights Winter Chillin: Games People Played program, which is all about the old-school joys of shuffleboard, Twister, and bingo. I didnt really know about a lot of the games my grandma and parents talked about until we did this event last year, says park rep Chelsea Cohen.
Still, you dont have to be an AARP member to get a kick out of games like Jack Straws, Hubbub, and Four Square. At 2006s inaugural outing, Cohen says the centers young interns really got into it. They would hold shuffleboard tournaments before we opened for visitors.
The event is part of the centers winter series of family-oriented dinner programs. After participants feast on a buffet, they can check out game booths set up throughout the venue. Cohen insists its a fun way to spend a Friday night with nary a mouse, joystick, or Xbox controller in sight. Its all about getting down to the basics.
