However, like Costner, the Midnight Star has grown increasingly irrelevant in the past decade. In 2017, it hosted its final evening of old folks playing nickel slots, shutting its doors for good. The actor himself seems to be selling off all of his holdings in the Deadwood area, presumably to deal with the looming ocean rise.
Jessica Biel Opened A Chuck E. Cheese's For Rich People
Let's say you're a famous person who also has a kid. You want them to be like any other kid, which includes taking them out in public to eat shitty food and play shitty games. But you can't go to Chuck E. Cheese's, where you not only risk the latest strain of plebian hepatitis, but also being out-celebed by a band of animatronic animals. Luckily, Jessica Biel has you covered.
Au FudgeAt last, you can turn your prize tickets in for a $26 bottle of small batch honey.
Famous from a show seen on hospital televisions around the world, Biel decided to break from acting to take care of her newborn in 2015, which caused her to muse philosophically about the unique challenge of being a parent while also being slightly famous. Lamenting the fact that her rich friends didn't have their version of a kids arcade, she decided to use her newly freed-up schedule to start a West Hollywood restaurant called "Au Fudge."
Kara Brown/Jezebel Every kid loves a good petite crudite platter.
The self-described "community clubhouse" tries to mix regular kids' stuff with upscale Hollywood living, making sure all the precious future DJs and models get used to the lifestyle as quickly as possible. Their menu includes updated kid staples like truffled grilled cheese sticks and banana sandwiches with almond butter. As far as entertainment, kids are herded towards what is called the "creative space," which for some reason resembles either waiting rooms at a child psychologist's office or a cold, sterile laboratory where children are distracted by play horsies while their kidneys are removed:
Au Fudge Instead of a robot animal rock band, you get a sock puppet of Ira Glass that plays the most recent This American Life.
Au Fudge What kid would ever want video games and a ball pit when this was an option?
But Au Fudge also focuses on the poor, downtrodden parents. With an "award winning cocktail program" and on-site babysitters, the restaurant tries to offer young parents what they crave most: a chance to get drunk and pretend their children don't exist. Au Fudge also plans to expand its offerings to include yoga, cooking, and gardening classes for children. Combine that kind of boho parent swank and a menu that charges $6 for milk, and you've got yourself quite the niche dining experience.
Yeah, they're not making any money.
