What is going on in North Korea? Well, to put it in perspective, reports have compared North Korea’s atrocities to that of the Nazi’s. However, North Korea refuted, saying the findings are wrong. Typical, yet it’s extremely rare for a UN report to directly implicate a country’s leader if nothing was wrong. In other words, the UN is taking this very seriously. A UN panel warned the North Korean leader that he may be held accountable for alleged crimes against humanity–think torture, rape, slavery, and murder. The UN called on the international community to act in whatever manner necessary.
For almost a year, there has been an ongoing investigation traced back to the abuses of the people of North Korea. One witness, a survivor of a North Korean prison camp, told the commission of “seeing a guard beat a nearly starving woman who had recently given birth, then force the woman to drown her baby.” Others told of being “imprisoned for watching soap operas, trying to find food for their families, traveling without permission or having family members considered suspect by the government.”
What is going on in North Korea today is simply incomprehensible. How can dictators exude such extreme power over their people in order to torture them. Sadly, it is evident that genocide will be an ongoing issue in our world, no matter what any humanitarian says.
Dave & Buster’s:
Arcade or Sports Bar?
Dave & Buster’s is an American restaurant and entertainment business headquarters in Dallas, Texas. Most think of D&B as strictly an arcade, however it is so much more. D&B’s arcade reputation makes it seem as though it is only for children, however each D&B has a full-service restaurant and bar, attracting an older crowd.
Attracting the older crowd:
While the new D&B keeps its arcade intact with over 120 games, they have made an effort to expand into an older demographic. In recent years D&B has brought on their “Eat and Play” deal. This deal starts by giving the customer about 10 different items to choose from including; burgers, chicken fingers, Philly cheesesteaks, and other bar items. Then you can choose the $16.99 deal( includes a $10 play card for games) or a $24.99 deal(includes a $20 play card). All of this while sitting at a booth or at the bar, with a plethora of televisions giving the customer a true sports bar feel.
This Eat and Play combo deal brings in an older crowd of sports fans and college students to come grab some bar food, watch the game, and after getting nice and lubricated, drunkenly competing against their friends at the variety of different racing and shooting games.
Oh did I forget to mention that they have beer towers everywhere?
They have even begun to advertise their sports bar. Click here
Keeping the younger crowd:
The new D&B in Dallas has over 120 games readily available for the younger crowd. While some of these games include Fruit Ninja, Mario Cart, and Doodle Jump, D&B has done a fantastic job integrating addicting iPhone and console games into their lineup.
As always, the ultimate goal still remains to collect as many tickets as humanly possible to buy that sweet ice cream maker, or even the Xbox. However, as adults, lets be real, it would take thousands of dollars to win those gifts…
Trust me, I have tried… Many times.
So what to change?
Dave & Buster’s has done a great job at what they do for many years (they are an arcade that still exists…) But it is time to bring in the big guns. Launching a social media campaign to bring out that group of 18-30 year olds, that do not have children, is the final goal. With the new Dallas location, they have the goods to get it done. Time to start advertising those happy hours and posting pictures of those beer towers.
