Pac-man Date Idea

I know it’s early, but my Husband was born in November 1980 which makes him the big 3-0 this November! I am going to plan a few date nights centered around the 80’s theme up until his birthday where I am already planning his 80’s themed party (shhhh….he doesn’t know yet!)
This Saturday (May 22) 30 years ago was the release of Pac-man.  I thought this would be a great time to kick-off the 80’s themed dates I am going to plan.

When Jason got home from work I had this taped to the door.
(It’s supposed to be an arcade game machine.  This was SO last minute!)
Inside I put a Pac-man eating cheese puffs on the ground.
The cheese puffs lead to this note, saying:
“Thirty Years ago tomorrow, Pac-man was released! Let’s celebrate by putting on our Nerdy 80’s attire, grabbing some fast food, and waiting for the Unveiling of Pac-man!”
We dressed up as 80’s gaming nerds, and hit up McDonald’s just like the nerdy kids probably liked to do in the 80s. :)
We got lots of great looks from everyone!
(Jason’s outfit is way better than mine – did I mention – this was SO last minute…)
Then we went to Blockbuster where we rented 80’s movies to watch up until the time that Pac-man would have been released.
Our choice of movies were:
The movie “Weird Science” would have been perfect for this date! Our blockbuster didn’t have it! :(
We stayed up til 12:00 a.m. and downloaded the free Pac-man game on our Iphones to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Pac-Man!
Happy GAMING!!!!

  1. Love it! My husband is also turning the big 30 this year and love the idea. Can't wait to hear what other creative things you have in store. I will try to think of some myself. Thanks for sharing.
