I believe that if, at the end, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn’t always know this and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.”

Game-X opening in Downtown Atlanta

“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” ~ Plato


Just when we thought that they couldn’t possibly pack more fun and excitement into the same square block as the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coke, Centennial Olympic Park, Legacy Property Group shows us that there’s still plenty of room for play.

Game-X, the latest addition to the Luckie-Marietta District in Downtown Atlanta, will open in early April.

The “barcade” will feature over 60 games as well as a TWO bars and a full menu of appetizers and sandwiches.

I’ll be getting a sneak peek tonight.  Follow along on twitter @vlalife and instragram: vivalalife for a first look at all the fun.
