True fact: The same guy who invented Atari also founded Chuck E. Cheese’s. His name is Nolan Bushnell, and he had eight children, so, yeah … we’re guessing that played a role in coming up with a pizza restaurant-arcade hybrid to keep kids entertained for hours and that has the tagline “Where a kid can be a kid.”

Another true fact: You can buy $20 worth of Chuck E. Cheese’s games, and get $20 free this month. I suppose this second fact is one that you can actually use.
