If you're a maniac on your home game, and anything below 200 BPM makes you want to take a nap on your dance mat, you might think you're ready to take on the pros. So head to the Entertainment Zone, where on a typical weekend night you'll find a nice selection of ten- to eighteen-year-olds to challenge to some friendly "versus" on the DDR Extreme
machine (three songs for 75 cents). Watch out, though -- this ain't no flashy Metreon scene, but the regulars at this little arcade will take you down without breaking a sweat. Once you've been thoroughly humiliated, you can disappear into the blacklit laser-tag arena and pretend you're at Burning Man.
