What does it cost to build an arcade for grown-ups?

The City of Boise issued a permit last week for Dave & Buster's renovations at the Boise Towne Plaza on North Milwaukee Avenue. Word is the new Boise entertainment center will open in December. The value of the building permit? A cool $2.7 million. Sound like a lot? To put it in context, that's what it costs to turn a former Circuit City space into a 24,000-square-foot restaurant, bar and arcade with the appropriate bathrooms, walls and everything else. It also cost them about $25,000 in fees to get the permit.

Now we'll NEVER get a ZAXXON!!!


You fry wants with that?


I see this market becoming saturated. Plenty of hole-in-the-wall type bars, etc. that can't make it. How will this be any different, and how can they afford the high capital costs?

Mitt Romney

would have you believe you can just borrow $20,000 from your parents to start a business.

#1 You need parents that are not broke, and
#2 $20,000 doesn't go very far these days.


would tell you to get $20,000 from the "government"
#1 you need a government that's not broke
#2 I agree but, $20,000 would go far enough if you're willing to work hard enough.

I learned to get $125,457.88 worth for $20,000 though.

You just aren't cheap enough.
