Creekside Grill makes its home in an ugly part of Caldwell (nestled between Subway and Taco Bell) in an even uglier strip mall. Before this, I'd never stepped foot inside Creekside Grill. I knew nothing firsthand about the place except that the parking lot is always full when I drive by during the dinner hour.
They are called MMORPs (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing games) and the biggest one of all is World of Warcraft that claims over five million online players. Players range in age from seven (as in my own son who I let play on occasion when I'm not hogging the computer) to seniors. Judging by the banter on the live chat portion of the game I would guess the statistical bell curve peaks out in age somewhere in the late teens or early 20s. This means a large number of players are definitely under the legal age of consuming alcohol.
I've chewed on ice since childhood. It's a way for me to gauge my water intake and the chewing curbs my appetite.
