Clifton Park NY Homes - The Getaway Restaurant

Tom and Gail Alverson wanted to give students a fun place to hang out, watch sports, and go celebrate after games without being at a bar.  So, they opened The Getaway, located in Clifton Park NY.   The Getaway is a family restaurant with a sports theme. The difference is, all the jerseys and sports photos on the walls are from local youth teams.


The Getaway Bar


Located at Clifton Park Center, the restaurant is inviting its customers to bring in trading card-style photos many youth sports leagues sell to their athletes. They trade them for a free drink and once they get enough of them, they're going to laminate them onto the tabletops so you might see your neighbors' kids. They want the kids to come in and see their stuff, not Eli Manning, Drew Brees, or Bret Favre. 



The Getaway

In most restaurants young people get antsy to go home the moment they are done eating.  Instead of being restless, ready to go home, they might drop some money in one of the video games. They love to sit at the bar and watch the game.  The "bar" sells sundaes not alcohol.  It is a long bench with a large screen TV overhead. The bar airs football games not available in most homes. The restaurant also boasts a jukebox, pinball machine (named The Getaway), and two video game machines equipped with Ms. Pac Man, Galaga and Frogger.

They sell burgers, chicken, hot dogs and other family friendly fare. Their unusual offerings include fried Oreo sundaes and fried pickles.

Sounds like a tremendous place and great idea.  I don't know how I'd be able to drag my three kids out of there!  The sundae bar would be awesome!

Cute story, thanks for sharing. 

All the best, Michelle
