Otherwise, I could probably include just about every bowling alley in the Triad (and the United States for that matter) as well.

That said, I'll probably be trying out Camel City BBQ in the relatively near future. I love BBQ and I love arcade games.

ADD: And now that I see that they apparently have a retro Atari system on site, I almost certainly will be trying them out soon.
Yeah, I knew you didn't mean bars with a dusty PacMan tucked in the corner or a 10-year-old Golden Tee. Camel City BBQ has a good deal more than that. They have a dedicated area (I think they even call it the "Barcade") with a larger than average selection of games. It's not on the level of most arcade bars, but it adds to the fun if you're into that sort of thing. They also have consoles at the tables (in the booths, at least), ranging from classic Atari to n64.

I should add that their BBQ is just okay. I think their smoked wings are the menu standout, and I like that they offer more than just pork (brisket, chicken, ribs), but for quality of BBQ alone, I'd say Bibs has them beat in downtown Winston. But as a place to hang out, have some beers, have some wings, and play games, it's solid.

Groundbreaking ceremony was held in late February. I'm not sure what the construction timeline was estimated to be.

Hyatt Place coming to downtown Winston-Salem. Looks like it's going to replace the Staybridge Suites that was suppose to go up next to the planned Hotel Indigo in the Pepper Building. This Hyatt Place will be constructed differently. They will be modular units constructed in a Virginia factory and assembled on site. Don't know what to think of that but Hyatt Place is the kind of mid/upper scale flag that a city would want downtown.
