When entering primrose you will turn left into the parking lot of the plaza, drive further down the parking lot till you see the NE1 LAN it is also near Lifes a Stitch so if you see that then you might as well just park.
There are a few places nearby for food but I recommend driving down Nolana because this is the main restuarant strip in McAllen you got all the badass restuarants down this road. But there is a Dairy Queen and a Whataburger near by.

The secret game is…
NFL Blitz 2000 for N64. Yes betting will go hard for this (I will be side betting like crazy for this). Only 8 players will be chosen to a winner take all single elimination bracket (no crying this is a mans game lol, this game makes me cry sometimes though :sad:). I know $20 is steep but with a few backers at a few bucks a piece it can easily be made, hell I’ll back a person or 2 if I have faith in them. Thats $160 for the winner!!!
If you would like a shot at being in this tournament please post up (remember it is very easy to get people to help you pay for it if you don’t wanna fork all if it out yourself). If you would like to nominate someone post up.**
