livin' la vida lebowski

Remember how summer could just never come soon enough? The long hours spent staring out of classroom windows; the buds blossoming on tree limbs, waiting to erupt into the bright green leaves to shade you from the hot July sun...ok. I may be getting a little melodramatic here, but you do remember how it feels to want something so bad that the waiting is absolute agony?

Well. That's pretty much how I feel before a night at Brooklyn Bowl.

Host to bands and home to a branch of the Blue Ribbon Restaurants, Brooklyn Bowl is home to 16 lanes featuring energy efficient pin spotters, floors made of Forest Stewardship Counsel (FSC) Chain of Custody controlled wood, and a stage floor made out of recycled truck tires.

Set in
a renovated Williamsburg iron foundry, Brooklyn Bowl is New York's first LEED-certified alley and is completely powered by wind (wind!). Incredible edibles are offered by Blue Ribbon Restaurant who, along with typical alley-fare such as wings and jalapeno poppers, serve organic mixed green salads, mac n' cheese with artichokes and black olives, and - oh baby - a slow roast BBQ beef brisket sandwich with sweet and spicy gravy. All their beverages are on tap and served in glasses, eliminating any can or bottle waste, and their 10 draught beers are locally brewed in Brooklyn. (BTW: Brooklyn Brewery's Intensified Coffee Stout made with Stumptown Coffee is on the menu. Bowl buzzed in more than one way!)

Bowling, bands, and bad-butt booze? Sounds like a perfect game to me!
Brooklyn Bowl is now open at 61 Wythe Ave. between North 11th and 12th Sts., Williamsburg. You can follow them on Twitter, or visit them on line at www.brooklynbowl.com.
