Please Help Dart'em Up Stay in Business

We were sad to hear that Dart’em Up, one of our kids' favorite indoor fun place (read our review of Dart’em Up here), is in danger of having to close its doors forever due to COVID-19 and want to help them raise awareness of their ongoing fundraiser. 

Here's a message from Richard McVay, Owner and Founder of Dart’em Up, one of the kindest and nicest persons we've met and who deeply cares about kids.
