New gaming lounge and late-night grub spot now open in same building (WITH VIDEO)
Friday morning was go time for Rebecca and Clayton Auzenne, owners of Dungeons & Daiquiris, downtown Milledgeville's newest business.
The gaming lounge/restaurant is located at 125 S. Wayne Street, located roughly halfway between Ryals Bakery and Chops. Many people around town may remember the building as Scoops ice cream parlor from several years ago. There are couches, a chest full of classic board games, two televisions with "old school" video games, a card/gaming table, as well as a "digital game table," which looks like a coffee table but functions as a large tablet, complete with digital games such as Connect 4, chess and Dungeons & Dragons.
All games are free to play.
"The concept is to come in and play for free, but just buy some food and drinks so we can keep the doors open," said Rebecca.
The Auzennes originally are from Louisiana, and seemingly everyone from Louisiana can cook. Included are made-to-order crepes, homemade cinnamon rolls and bagel sandwiches.
The alcohol license is on the way, but Dungeons & Daiquiris initially is opening with non-alcoholic "mocktails." The business will also have different "feature nights," including trivia night, cosplay night and board game night.
Dungeons & Daiquiris is opening seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. At 11 p.m., meanwhile, the building will re-open on select nights as Milly Grub, which will serve food and cater to the late-night crowd. Milly Grub, which has a completely separate ownership group, will stay open until 4 a.m.
