RE: Black Rose. Maybe when their prices go retro along with the vinyl and decor.

Black Rose cocktail menu is so hilariously lame, who reads or orders those anyway? But this vinyl dj seems like a big plus. And is reminscent of before Hi-Fi renovated and sold out had a great vinyl dj on thursdays.

Bowling alley seems awesome too. But as a hobby for working class america costing peanuts across the country, Manhattan bowling prices remind me of how shit ny can be bc of costs.

@Anon. 1:52 - I already fought some of those battles with the Anonymous who despises me because I dared to crack a joke about 'em. Although s/he seems to be awfully silent when others, and there are many, make mocking reference to acai bowls in the comments - guess I'm just lucky!

"Black Rose: we're a neighborhood rock and roll bar that, uh, has club DJ's playing boogie disco starting at 10pm-4am, really no different than a Meatpacking District club! WOOOOOOO"

Looking at my crystal 8 ball, I can see into the future CB3 docket:

11. Black Rose 117 AVENUE A (Renewal with complaints)

And every single neighbor within ear shot of this place holding up signs.

4:23 exactly. Whereas in 98% of the world bowling is a casual, quotidian working class sport, in NYC it's a douchey rich people scene complete with dress codes, bouncers and bottle fucking service. Be prepared to shell out a few hundy for a night of NYC bowling.

I loved that dog. RIP Scandalous. You lived in this neighborhood longer than most of the people who are here now.
