In common parlance, an all-nighter means you've greeted the sunrise after a long night of work. Not so at Skynet Gaming, whose Friday all-nighters are dedicated to play. From 8 p.m. to 8 a.m., guests can nom on pizza and pop while playing the latest PC, Xbox 360, or Nintendo Wii titles against fellow Skynet attendees and gamers out in Internetland. Individual gaming stations accommodate players with high-definition displays, as well as comfy sofas and chairs.
Skynet hosts open gaming sessions until 2 a.m. the rest of the week, as well as tournaments, league games, and rounds of board and card games such as Magic: The Gathering. And, its in-house tech wizards can repair any malfunctioning computers or consoles, so gaming can pick right up when you get home.
