Capitalizing on a wave of gamer enthusiasm in Frisco, @nerdvana is the quintessential hangout for esports enthusiasts – and even those who just like to play a little Mario Kart once in a while (which you can play right from your booth). The brainchild of Kristy Pitchford and Randy Pitchford (CEO of gaming company Gearbox, also located in Frisco), @nerdvana is a restaurant/bar/coffee shop that appeals to one’s sense of playfulness with themed menu items (such as shakes that are rated E for everyone). The coffee shop has a latte machine that can print any photo you send via app in the milk foam.
