Since the days of Atari and Pac-Man, video games have often been deemed, at best, a harmless form of leisure.

But as Daniel Caudill explains, the increasing legitimacy of esports has given gamers the chance to parlay their hobby into a college scholarship and, perhaps, a professional career.

Also, right in the middle of town — not hidden at all — is a longtime Wichita landmark.

On today’s Hidden Kansas, Lu Anne Stephens takes us to one of her favorite places in Riverside.
