Fuck yea! (at Melody Lanes)
Guys, disco bowling at Melody Lanes on a Saturday night is magical. There are families and teenagers and twenty- and thirty-somethings dancing in neighboring lanes between frames, some on dates or in groups or at parties, and the kind of ethnic diversity that makes you thankful to live in New York. And for $22 each you can bowl for 3 hours. (It’s called something Madness? I don’t know, but it’s great and we loved bowling for so long and slowly getting better that we’re talking about joining a league.)
And after living in the neighborhood for seven years I finally met the legendary Pete. (He always had the night off when I’ve been before.) Also, I finally broke 100 in a game in I don’t remember how long after hitting my groove and bowling two strikes in a row. I just needed three games and countless pitchers to get warmed up.
