You have to admit, there was always something a little sexy about The Big Lebowski’s número uno bowler: his knack for sass, that weird ponytail thing, the way he, um, licked the ball.
On second thought, he was gross. But there’s nothing unattractive about Brooklyn Bowl, the amazing-beyond-amazing new bowling alley/Blue Ribbon resto/rock venue in Williamsburg.
We don’t wanna give the whole video away (this is one of our favorites so far), but we’re pretty sure this place is gonna be the new in-spot when it opens next week after months of preparation.
Brooklyn Bowl, 61 Wythe Avenue, between North 11th and North 12th Streets (718-963-3369 or brooklynbowl.com).
Blind dating. Speed dating. Online dating. You’ve tried everything in your shameless quest to find the perfect man.
So you’ll totally relate to When in Rome. The new film stars Kristen Bell as an ambitious, relationship-challenged New Yorker who takes a whirlwind trip to Rome. There she defiantly steals coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of the men who threw them in.
Her new suitors include a sausage magnate (Danny DeVito), a street magician (Jon Heder), an adoring painter (Will Arnett), and a self-admiring model (Dax Shepard). But when a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) pursues her with equal zest, she’ll have to determine if it’s the work of the coins or the real thing.
Which is still easier than online dating.
When in Rome opens this Friday. Check local listings for showtimes.
