Electrical upgrades and painting were among the work needed to convert the former Tippecanoe Frontier Trading Company building into the cafe.

Enslen said creating the business in the 1860s building is a work in progress. “I like it. You are in an old building and come in and have all the newest equipment,” he said.

He’s given numerous tours of the cafe already, explaining to the uninitiated the business concept. He said he hopes to attract players of all ages for the video and board gaming. He also hopes to become a Dayton birthday party mecca – for kids of all ages.

The game shop offers Dayton fun Wednesday and Thursday 3pm-9pm; Friday 3pm-midnight; Saturday 11am-midnight; and Sunday 11am-5pm.

Summer birthday parties are great fun with so many themes to choose from. With these summer fun theme ideas, the hardest part will be deciding on just one! The age and gender of your child will help narrow down the choices. What summer activities your child prefers should play a factor in the decision as well.

Hula Luau is a great summer party theme with a Hawaiian twist. This one is especially popular with teens and pre-teens but suitable for younger children as well. Send out homemade or purchase invitations online that are in the luau theme. Colorful grass skirts, leis, and barbecued chicken on a spit set the tone for this island celebration. How low can you go? Play fun games like limbo and “Hula Luau Murder Mystery”. Dance to Hawaiian music and if your party is at night, outside, set up festive paper lantern lights and if your party is by a pool, you can buy a floating light show for less that you think. Don’t forget the cake! Bake a palm tree or pineapple shaped cake and decorate accordingly. Check online for delicious luau recipes. An ocean of fun awaits you with this island theme.
