    A San Diego mother is suing Chuck E. Cheese, the favorite pizza chain of kids across the nation, accusing the restaurant of illegal gambling. Denise Keller, mother of two daughters, says Chuck E. Cheese has replaced its traditional games of skee-ball and whack-a-mole with machines that resemble slot machines, Capitol Weekly reported. The lawsuit says that “many games found at Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurants are illegal gambling devices that require little or no skill and are predominantly games of chance, much like a roulette wheel,” according to the paper. Keller’s attorney, Eric Benink, said the games have flashing lights and...

    In Brookfield, Wis., no restaurant has triggered more calls to the police department since last year than Chuck E. Cheese's. Officers have been called to break up 12 fights, some of them physical, at the child-oriented pizza parlor since January 2007. The biggest melee broke out in April, when an uninvited adult disrupted a child's birthday party. Seven officers arrived and found as many as 40 people knocking over chairs and yelling in front of the restaurant's music stage, where a robotic singing chicken and the chain's namesake mouse perform. Chuck E. Cheese's bills itself as a place "where a...

    ome Amherst Town Board members question whether Chuck E. Cheese’s really is the place “where a kid can be a kid.” In a 3-3 vote this week, the board failed to approve a game license for the kids-themed food and entertainment venue on Harlem Road, citing concerns about violent video games and bad behavior by patrons that require police intervention. Council Member Shelly Schratz said she was disturbed by several “action-packed shoot-and-kill games” that were accessible to children as young as 4. “When I see 6-year-olds, 8-year-olds playing those games, when all the time we’re opening the paper and seeing...

    The wobbly video shows a group of adults mulling inside Chuck E. Cheese's restaurant in Susquehanna Twp. Suddenly it pans left and captures a fight breaking out. The 22-second clip, uploaded Sunday to YouTube, is the latest example of what police describe as a disturbing and bizarre crime trend: escalating violence among adults at a place designed for children's birthday parties. Susquehanna Township police have been called to the restaurant on Union Deposit Road 12 times in the past year for reports of disorderly conduct, assault and theft. Those calls have resulted in 13 arrests, including six women -- five...

    Hey mom, how clean is that Chuck E. Cheese? The answer is "not very". MomLogic.com conducted a down and dirty investigation with the help of "Dr Germ" himself, famed microbiologist Charles Gerba. Dr. Gerba went to three locations in California and swabbed a variety of surfaces in the restaurant and arcade areas, such as play mats, trays, chairs, tables, and games. Among the discoveries from the analyses were: --Serratia Rubidaea, a rare cause of respiratory tract infections, wound and blood infections, found on the Yellow Bus Ride in Pasadena. --Enterobacter sakazakii, which can cause necrotizing enterocolitis, bacteremia, and infant meningitis,...

    Apparently, long service in the military makes you an expert on kooky fun-houses. The company behind childrens' restaurant chain Chuck E. Cheese picked retired four-star Gen. Tommy Franks to help them expand their brand. Franks was elected to the company's board of directors on March 26, CEC Entertainment said Monday. Franks, 62, served in the military for more than forty years before retiring in 2003, and now lives in Oklahoma. Franks has a private consulting firm, Franks & Associates, LLC. He serves on the board of directors of Bank of America and the National Park Foundation, and formerly served on...

    New York Sen. Hillary Clinton may be the star of the national Democratic Party, but her constituents back home say it's actually her New York colleague, Sen. Charles Schumer, who's doing the better job. According to a poll released Wednesday by Strategic Visions LLC, 59 percent of New Yorkers approved of the job Schumer was doing, with just 30 percent disapproving. That's better than the allegedly wildly popular Sen. Clinton, whose approval rating was 3 points lower than Schumer's, and whose disapproval rate was 2 points higher. In another blow to the notion that Hillary Clinton is New York's most...
