I know I have been talking about pizzerias lately, but I have always loved this concept. Chuck E. Cheese was always a magical place!

Here is a little history on the business.

Did you know the guy who created Chuck E. Cheese also created the video game business Atari?

Isn't that fascinating! Nolan Bushnell was the mind behind both ventures. It just goes to show you how important creativity is! Try to be creative each and every day. Write down your creative ideas and you never know what you might create!

Chuck E. Cheese's (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chuck_E._Cheese) - Chuck E. Cheese’s Pizza Time Theatre, designed to introduce video games to a younger audience within a public family setting rather than in a bowling alley or a bar, was launched by Atari founder Nolan Bushnell. Bushnell’s experience in the amusement park industry was influential in the conceptualization, as was his fondness for Disney. It was the first family restaurant to integrate food, animated entertainment, and an indoor arcade. The first location opened in 1977 in San Jose, California. The name "Chuck E. Cheese" was allegedly intended to make a person’s mouth bend into a smile when spoken.

me and my wife had thought about creating our own clothing line. and she thought about making her own perfume line also. I thought it would be a good idea, just the fact of people liking it and buying it

Can you tell us more about that? Who would you target with your clothing line?

What is your view behind doing your own fragrance?
