It hasn't even been a month since the incredible Surge Entertainment by Drew Brees opened their massive location in Bossier City's Pierre Bossier Mall, and things are already changing.  Staff at the arcade/bowling alley/restaurant/adventure park have observed several kids under the age of 18 have been enjoying the facilities without adult supervision, and that's what prompted the change.

From now on, Surge will enforce a rule that is normally relegated to the weekends: No one under 18 will be allowed inside without parental supervision.  According to the report from KSLA, the move wasn't made because kids were causing trouble or damage to the games.  The decision to institute and enforce the rule for the entire week was one born out of caution.  The concern is that a child without parental guidance is far more likely to get hurt, and that is a liability that Surge doesn't take lightly.

With that being said, don't think this place is just for kids.  In my humble opinion, it's also a great spot for a date.  With the full restaurant, bar, and VIP section in the back (that means no kids) you really have everything you need.  Except for a date, that part is on you.

50+ Pictures of Shreveport's Abandoned Historic Fairgrounds Field

Before you know it, Shreveport's historic Fairgrounds Field will be will be exactly that - history. Once the legal wrangling is done, the proverbial endangered-bat-guano will hit the fan and the once glorious Ratchet-City cathedral to baseball will be demolished and gone.

Before it "bats" its final inning, let's take a final look at the glory that once was. I warn you though, it's kind of like seeing that super-hot girl from high school 20 years later - and time has not been kind.
