Brooklyn Bowl

Last night I went to Brooklyn Bowl for the second time. Both times were for birthday parties. The first time we did not bowl but enjoy three live bands on their great stage over looking a dance floor, bar and sixteen bowling lanes. Last night, I pretty much made use of every single section of Brooklyn Bowl including the stage. Yes, I said the stage.

So, the MAC II gang headed out to Williamsburg for the first time. We thought if we were going to Brooklyn we would go in old New York fashion. What a trip it was to see our bosses on the subway.  

Because Susie's boyfriend is (head of - hehe) security at Brooklyn Bowl, we got a little VIP treatment. We got lucky and had two lanes which means we had two comfortable sofas and a lot of space to mingle. 

To make the night more fun, we each picked a nickname for everyone instead of using our own names. As you can see, some of them were quite interesting. 

Everyone had a great time bowling. I didn't do too bad either. I even beat the boys a few times. I should have had enough practice by the end. We bowled about seven games. I must say, I got pretty good. Watch out! 

As I mentioned earlier, Brooklyn Bowl has live bands most nights. Here is an image of the stage over looking the dance floor and bowling lanes. 

So I mentioned the stage earlier. Yes, the stage. Well I met the stage and I conquered the stage to Sir Mix A Lot's Baby Got Back. Oh my gosh what a sight that must have been. I had never done Karaoke before. I don't know why. It seems like something I would do (with enough liquor).

My partner in crime, Will, did a great job helping me out when I couldn't stop laughing. I hear there is a video that might make an appearance sometime soon. Now that's a scary thought. For your sake, not mine, I hope not. But, it was a blast.  

This is the bar, where we started before everyone arrive. Brooklyn Bowl only has beer on tap and each beer is local. The design details of the bar are great. The joints were quite the hot topic. But, you have to remember it was a group of Interior Designers. The foot rests were old steel pipes. 

Brooklyn Bowl is LEED certified which means a certain percent of each material is Green. Getting LEED certified is very difficult to do. But, it is so worth it. 

What's a party without food? Brooklyn Bowl has their own restaurant right inside the building. And of course it has to be a Blue Ribbon restaurant (only one of my favorites). We ordered so many appetizers, which were all demolished within minutes we had to order more.  My favorite of the night was the Rock-N-Roll Fries. Can we say dangerous? I think so. Yes, we had two orders. 

The Greek Pizza was also very interesting and delicious. It made me feel a little better about eating the fries since the pizza had some greens. The wings were also great! 

We ordered food directly to our lanes. You can also eat in the actual restaurant. 

The images are all from Brooklyn Bowl's website. The pictures are awesome. The place is so cool that it would be hard not to get a great picture. This is the check in desk. 

I thought this was a great picture looking out to the City.

The delicious Strawberry Short Cake Frank got for Susie. It was amazing. I had two pieces. Woopsie. 

Susie with her new Aero bag from all of us at MAC II! You're not cool unless you have one! Frank said, "all she needs now is a little dog to go in it!" 

It was a blast!
