Whenever Liz and I are on vacation, we make it a point to stop at new NTN places whenever we can.
We ended up going to ten new sites in Illinois, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida this past trip to the Gulf Coast. Sadly, we were the only ones playing in all but one place.
THIRD BASE-- SPRINGFIELD, ILLINOIS, Jan. 4th.
We've been to all Springfield sites, except this one that just got it recently. It was kind of hard to find it, southwest of the downtown. The first thing we noticed was that there are hardly any places to sit in it. Friendly people, though and found out it is more of a late night, younger crowd joint. The place gets crowded and that is why there are so few seats.
Judging by the low scores, not many people play, but it was early in the month.
Next, we hit all three places listed as being in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
BUFFALO WILD WINGS-- HATTIESBURG, MISSISSIPPI Jan. 6th
We hit all three places in the afternoon and this was a rare BW3 (what us old-timers called Buffalo Wild Wings, in the early days called Buffalo Wild Wings & Weck, hence the w3. Here we are in the heart of Brett Favre land, University of Southern Mississippi.
Friendly bartender and this was a rare time when no one else was playing. Usually, there is at least one person playing in BW3s, even if it is just the poker game.
Always really love spending $5 for soft drinks at these places just for the two of us, especially when we aren't going to get refills. then, there's the buck tip.
I don't know if I've ever been anywhere with more traffic than here in Hattiesburg.
