By the time we had gotten there Walter was ready to go looking with us for a snack. We tried the Matte Factor, but it was packed and not conducive to a proper TB meet-up. We decided to try The Nile Cafe and were pleasantly surprised. Not only did the menu boast some tasty looking dishes and drinks but a single or a shared hookah. Deciding to stick to the snack plan we tried the Mediteranean treats of pita crisps & various dipping sauces.
After the hookah and hummus we walked a few steps back to the arcade to play some games and look for some photographic opportunities. I learned that Walter prefers the pinball games with the dialed numbers (as opposed to the digis) and loves a good Atari game in the wee hours of the morning. We found the perfect game for him...a baseball/pinball/dialed game...vintage 1920s maybe??? I don't think I could've planned a better fit!! Well we stayed till lights out and meandered a bit but the shops were all closed so we called a night. Walter will be heading up the road to catch a Sky Sox game (CS minor league)--fingers crossed and then on up to Denver for the Rockies. Good luck, Walter and may the weather be on your side!!
