Arcade Youtube Videos

I recently started watching some arcade videos on YouTube and got Sam hooked on them as well. I grew up going to playing video games (still do) and going to arcades. Glad to see some more modern larger places like Round 1, Dave & Busters, and GameWorks keeping the arcade alive.

There is something zen about watching other people play arcade games especially the coin pushers.

We decided to give it a try ourselves.

I just wish these new UFO claw machines worked like the old ones I am used to. My claw reflexes kept tapping the second arrow instead of holding it down. We will be going back for more Arcade fun in the future.

Top 3 Eastside Spots for a Holey Breakfast

Chuck’s Donuts – Renton Highlands
5335 4th St. #1, Renton WA 98059

They keep the donut making going for a good portion of the day. however, you should still make sure you get here early on the weekends to get a fresh crispy donut before they run out of parking. The maple bars are to die for. The frosting on both the maple bar and the chocolate bar is some sort of soft creamy whipped creation that will have you coming back for more. There are a few seats if you want to sit and eat your dozen maple bars at Chuck’s place.

Top Pot Donuts @ The Landing in Renton
The Landing, 815 N 10th St f, Renton, WA 98057

Sure Top Pot seems like is everywhere, but this is one of my favorite locations. Like real estate it is all about location, location, location. This location is warm and inviting on the inside and provides a nice place to stroll around if you want to get your nut on the go. The Seattle team-colored donuts will keep you in a sporty spirit. When you are done with your coffee and donuts you can take a walk around The Landing for some shopping or take in a movie.

Blazing Bagels Redmond
6975 176th Ave NE #365, Redmond, WA 98052

Another busy spot on the weekends unless you get there before the brunch crowd. Not only do they bagels and cream cheese, but you can get sandwich bagels as well. Grab a dozen bagels on the go or sit and enjoy a toasted bagel and some cofee. With over thirty different kinds of bagels, this is the place to be for a holey breakfast or lunch if you are not into that whole donut thing.

Lex BurgerQuest : Sawyer’s Burger



The next burger on my Quest to find the best burger in Lexington, KY was the bacon cheeseburger from Sawyer’s. Now this is a different kind of burger than the last two I reviews. The Sawyer’s burger is a smaller burger cooked more like street food or food truck food. Made to order, simple meat on a flat grill and a bun.

The Sawyer’s burger was good, but it lacked the flavors that the Copper River Grill Burger or Bronte Burger’s had. It was a busy lunch time so maybe cooking all the burgers at once so quickly diminished the flavor. Or perhaps it is the size of the burger patty.

Fries were good, the cheese and bun were great, but the burger patty itself was just a greasy burger.

BurgerQuest Ranking So Far:

Big Kahuna Burger ( Bronte Bistro )
Bigfoot Mother In Law ( Copper River Grill )
Sawyer’s Bacon Cheese Burger ( Saywer’s Downtown )
