Squeak Soda Shop: B

Attention, grown men: You look foolish playing Wii. Now, I’m not saying you shouldn’t play Wii. All I’m saying is that you should do it only in the privacy of your own home. And alone.

And, Squeak Soda Shop? You should remove the Wii from the dining area. It’s a pain in the ass to have to walk around irritating grown men playing frisbee golf.

Everything else in Squeak is great. Colorful, playful, whimsical. A perfect place to bring your kids. Actually, it’s probably a better place to bring someone else’s kids to get them all sugared up before dropping them off at home.

I had a classic grilled cheese sandwich, and Adrienne had a provolone on multigrain bread. Mine was better.

Overall, the place is perfect for what it is. Sugary treats and fun foods. Lots of options (Anjou Pear Soda?) and reasonable prices. I just don’t think I’m whimsical enough for Squeak.

Oh, and one last thing: Plan for needing a nap soon after visiting Squeak. After the sugar high, assuming you don’t send yourself into some kind of irreversible diabetic coma, you’ll crash pretty hard and need to sleep.

Derp, I'm a grown man playing Wii in public.
