Food, sex and video gaming: it’s the ideal trifecta for any run-of-the-mill male and Hooters Casino Hotel in Las Vegas is making it a reality. The Joystixx (yes, that’s really the name) is 21+ and calls itself the “best new place to score in Vegas.” Joystixx opened last month in the infamous chain’s casino, offering “classic arcade games, drink-serving gamer girls, and private video game console booths,” according to the gamer blog Kotaku.

You can do better than that. [Kotaku via Hooters Casino Hotel]
