The new Fireshark Gaming opens Wednesday at the Village at Greenwich at 21st and Greenwich.
Fireshark is tech entrepreneur Kent Johnson’s mash-up of video games with a social experience.

“Everyone who’s gotten to play so far has loved it – even the people who have been skeptical of it,” says Kenton Hansen, who is handling marketing for the business.
