NES Turns 20; celebrate with Dinner at Bushnell's Uwink

Perhaps one reason why we've been seeing so many features about the NES lately was in preparation for today--can you believe the NES is 20? Classicgaming.com is celebrating with a nice overview of the unit's history, starting with the Famicom and going through some of the "might have beens." No matter what you think of Nintendo today, you have to give them credit for pushing through the wads of nay-sayers after the "Videogame Crash" and showing that, duh, videogames are here to stay. To celebrate the NES's big 20, you might consider stopping by Nolan Bushnell's new restaurant--Uwink Unlike Bushnell's other restaurant chain (Chuck E Cheese), Uwink is catering to an older, more mature crowd. The idea is simple--lots of tech, but an emphasis on using the tech to get people socializing (rather than draw them into the autism of World of Warcraft!). The place is definitely big on Mac, and I'm not talking Big Macs here (most dishes appear to be vegan-compatible). It all looks incredible, and I only wish I lived closer to California! Anyone in the Woodland Hills area care to check it out and report back?
