Dave & Buster's Kicks Off Summer With New, New and New

Chain Offers New Games, New Food and New Beverages

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - June 05, 2013) -  Dave & Buster's is doing what no other restaurant chain can do: simultaneously introducing new food, new drinks and new games. To top it off, they are also giving guests free plays on five of the newest games.

"When you visit us to eat, drink and play, you will definitely find something new at Dave & Buster's," said Dolf Berle, president and chief operating officer, "We want everyone to come in and check out these new games, and then play five of them for free."

Dave & Buster's will roll out eight new games this summer, including some that are exclusive to the dining and entertainment chain. The games range from big-screen versions of mobile apps to the next evolution in 3D games.

"We've rolled out 20 new games in the last year, and the games just keep getting bigger and better," said Kevin Bachus, senior vice president of Entertainment & Games Strategy, "These new games represent the best of the best, and we're thrilled to bring them to our guests - in some cases, exclusively at Dave & Buster's."

The games include giant-sized versions of well-known mobile games, such as Temple Run and Cut the Rope, redesigned to allow players to win prizes. In addition, there are fully immersive attractions like Dark Escape 4D and Dream Raiders that transport players to a completely different world. 

"Temple Run was a hugely popular mobile app, but playing it on a 42-inch screen with the opportunity to win cool stuff takes it to the next level. Where else can you win an iPad for being great at Temple Run?" said Bachus, "and Dark Escape 4D is a descent into terror unlike any other game I've ever played. The entire experience is jaw-dropping and pulse-pounding. There's a reason it measures your heart rate."

As part of the "Summer of Games" promotion, Dave & Buster's will give guests free play on five of the newest games when they purchase or re-charge a PowerCard, from now through August 25th.

"For example, we're the only place where you can get our new Potato Chip-Crusted Chicken," continued Gleason, "Chicken breaded with crushed potato chips and a rich French onion dip gravy make this unlike any fried chicken you've ever had." The innovative entrée joins mouth-watering new additions such as the delicious Bacon-Wrapped Beef Medallions & Grilled Shrimp and the flavorful Grilled Balsamic Chicken on the menu.

"Cocktails with flavored ice cubes have been really popular in upscale clubs, but no other chain has rolled them out nationally," stated Gleason, "We've got two new cocktails with strawberry flavored ice cubes in them: the Strawberry Summerita and Strawberry Sangria." The flavored ice cube cocktails join other innovative beverages on the Dave & Buster's drinks menu, such as the Miami Ice snow cone and a CoronaRita.

"If someone wants new games, new food or just a new experience that they can't find anywhere else," Berle promises, "they'll head to Dave & Buster's this summer."
