    Wii Tennis is just one of many sports on tap at the weekly event. Perhaps they'll hold a Wiimbledon tournament?

    A lot of hardcore gamers probably eschew going out on the town in favor of staying home and trying to top their high score, but a new weekly event might help get their butts off the couch.

    The James Hotel's J Bar lounge has announced a weekly event called Wii Wednesdays.

    Guests are encouraged to eat, drink and play featured Wii games, including a rotation of Wii tennis, bowling, baseball, golf and boxing on an 84-inch flat screen TV.

    J Bar's signature mini steak "Burkers" from the adjoining David Burke's Primehouse restaurant will be offered for $2 each, along with $3 domestic and imported beers and $5 Effen Vodka Cocktails.

    Doors open at 6 p.m. with complimentary appetizers served between 6 and 8 p.m.
