I visit the Alamo City alot. I have family there that I get to visit often #1 and because obviously there is far more to do there #2. I love the city, I love the atmosphere, it's big but to me has a small town feel. Weird but true. One of the restaurants we frequent, as a mother of 3, is one called Chicken n Pickle. We were there just a couple of weekends ago! We need one of these here in the 432...

if you've never been to one or even heard of it, you must visit the only one in Texas. It is literally an indoor/outdoor complex that has all kinds of cool games for kids and adults, fun for a family outing, it's huge! There are pickleball courts, bocce ball, shuffleboard and even cornhole.

During these colder months, no worries, there is indoor seating and games as well, including a ping pong table and plenty of tv's to watch your favorite sports.

The food is amazing, I highly recommend the street corn, sweet potato fries and their version of tamales. So good! Also I failed to mention the bar. Yes parents, take your kids to have a ton of fun playing Jenga, I forgot they have that too, while you kick back with an adult beverage and you can keep an eye on them in the process. Win-win.

We need one here in the worst way. As of now, the one in San Antonio is the only one in Texas but there is one coming to Grand Prairie (if it's not open already).

What else do you think we need here in the 432 as far as family entertainment goes?
