EPIC Cyber Cafe
EPIC Cyber Cafe's 30 gaming PCs let players jump immediately into the intergalactic warzones of StarCraft II or the modern combat of Battlefield 3. Open until 11 p.m. seven days a week, the cafe's high-speed internet keeps patrons immersed in a host of online games. During all-night LAN parties held every other Friday, gamers can compete to become local legends in games like Counter-Strike. The team at EPIC can take care of visitors' gaming machines as well as their own, as their technicians can efficiently repair or exorcise customers' troublesome PCs.
