An Arcade for Adults
Mini golf and games galore
Later this summer, the day will come when you’re suddenly too hot to function. You’ll need AC. You’ll need an ice-cold cocktail. And if there’s mini golf? Even better.
On that day, head to For the Win, the 20,000-square-foot sister concept to Streeterville’s Lucky Strike bowling alley that’s opening tomorrow. The amusement center is paradise for adults with a competitive streak. Here’s why:
Hit the Arcade
There are more than 130 video and real-life games, from Sega’s new 30-foot-long demolition derby race to carnival classics like Down the Clown.
Play Mini Golf
The six-hole course is a tribute to Chicago--you’ll navigate ivy-covered Wrigley walls and even potholes on a little version of Lower Wacker Drive.
Eat While You Play
Cart-service featuring small plates comes to you. Nosh on bites like rock-shrimp tacos and mini sloppy joes.
Or Just Eat
Adjourn to the main lounge for poutine (shown here), po’boys and a Victorian-inspired cocktail menu with a killer Blackberry Smash (St. Germain, local Death’s Door Gin, mint leaves, lime juice and blackberries).
Pick a Prize
Remember--or still trying to forget--Chuck E. Cheese? It’s the same deal at FTW: Take your winnings (tracked with a swipe card, not tokens or tickets) to “The Payoff” store to where you can score everything from a Burberry handbag to an Apple Watch.
