(The following is a copy of an e-mail sent by Tony Campana to potential attendees of his birthday party on Wednesday night.)
"Hey guys! What's up?
I'm doin' great. As you know, I'm turning seven on Wednesday. Now, I know, some of you older folks were probably thinking of a club...some pub...maybe even some beer and bowl, but I have a better idea.
I was thinking of having a TransFormers themed party at Chuck E. Cheese! Weeeeeee! Who doesn't want to go to Chuck E. Cheese?! I've been waiting my whole life for this. For years, I've seen the robotic music Chuck sing at birthday parties, and now it's MY TURN!
On Wednesday, we conclude our three game series with San Diego. What better way to unwind that night than playing a couple video games and getting lost in the maze of fun that is Chuck E. Cheese? I can't think of any better place to be. I've been asking my mom for YEARS...so let's DO THIS!
Word is the one on Fullerton has a pop-a-shot SECTION. Three pop-a-shots, two football areas, and a large skee-ball area. Plus, since we're getting the EXTRA birthday package (THANKS, MOM!), we get two slices of pizza, inflatable crowns, medallions, tons of tokens (like 36), and even Chuck HIMSELF will stop by.
Oh, and did I mention that I will be there? (I'm so funny!) I'm a Major League Baseball player! So, I will be giving everybody a signed baseball card.
And...ICE CREAM! CAKE! Who doesn't want to wear party hats and eat ice cream (I'm talking to you DeJesus, let yourself go for a couple hours!).
Please, please, please bring your favorite TransFormers costume. I will be Optimus Prime (and if anybody else comes up dressed as him you will NOT be allowed inside!). I like Bumblebee, too...so be creative.
I know that it's been a rough couple weeks. Sooooo...how about some racing simulation games? Some shoot 'em up games, some traditional games (Yep, Mr. Sveum, they even have some of those old Atari games you like...like the original Pac-Man!).
There is no reason to not come. It's my birthday, I've been dreaming about this for years, and I can't get on half the rides at Six Flags anyway (frown face!). So, since that's the case, Chuck E. Cheese it is!
My mom is paying so don't worry about money.
p.s. Don't forget about the TransFormers! We're going to have a 30 minute playoff between characters, winner gets extra tokens!
