Eat, drink and play multiplayer with the touch of a button!

... or maybe not. Uwink is Atari co-founder Nolan Bushnell's new interactive restaurant that all you Hollywood socialites can visit at the Highland center. The premise is pretty straight forward: with uwink you are able to order your food and drinks with the touch of a button on the flat panel monitors that adorn every table (This takes away all that awkward waitress talk). As an added bonus, each person can play multiplayer games with the other patrons on those screens. The games look fairly simple, almost like those trashy trivia/gambling games you see in your local dive, but the prospect of playing with other players is tantalizing. Unfortunately (according to correspondents of the MTV multiplayer blog) it doesn't exactly work. The service buttons don't exactly get you served and the games suck. Below is a link to the restaurants home page and a link to the blog all about it. I know a blog linking to another blog, it's lame. But what do you want for free?
