We turn our eyes to Williamsburg, where the much anticipated Brooklyn Bowl isn't quite ready for the public. The original plan had the space opening in February, 2009, but obviously that date has passed and we still aren't rolling. Time for an update. A Little Birdy tells DBTH that the new opening date is targeted for May 1st, with the soft opening coming in mid-April. In addition, BB has teamed up with their neighbors from the Brooklyn Brewery to create a special brew for the alley, and that the first event will be a combination launch for the beer and Brooklyn Bowl. Our LB also says that the Blue Ribbon crew is testing out a French Bread pizza menu for bowlers and diners. Hot diggity. Until then, the bowling faithful will have to make due with the Gutter and Port Authority Lanes.
