You know where you are? You’re in a bowling alley!

Hey yinz,

Happy Halloween! This weekend was pretty eventful. On Friday, my good friend Kate celebrated her birthday at Arsenal Lanes in Lawrenceville, where Fridays are all-you-can-bowl and karaoke nights.

The title of this blog is in reference to the karaoke part. Kate’s husband, Paul, and friend sang Guns N’ Roses‘ “Welcome to the Jungle” together, and at about 3:42 in the video, the part where Axl Rose taunts, “You know where you are? You’re in the jungle, baby! You’re going to die,” Paul replaced “jungle, baby” with “bowling alley.” Quite clever. However, we suspect that the DJ turned his mic down after that…

Aside from that diss, it was a great night. Arsenal Lanes is a cool, retro-looking bowling alley with a spread out floor plan. There are two rooms with lanes and a separate room with a bar, where a nurse lady and Homer Simpson snuggled up on the couch.

Here are a couple pix from the night. A lot of my photos were grainy because the bowling alley was dark, and obviously my targets were moving.

I would definitely like to go bowling again soon. It’s one of those activities that people don’t seek out often but are really happy when they do.

  1. Those pictures are great, and I am re-inspired to make that loooong six block trip to Arsenal Lanes and bowl sometime soon. Speaking of Lawrenceville, it would be super awesome if one of you guys came out to one of the super awesome bellydance shows happening at Istanbul in Lawrenceville this weekend. We’d love to have you! -kate

    • When is the show this weekend? When do you normally have shows? This weekend is pretty tight – a wedding and a birthday – but I’d love to come to a show sometime. Thanks for visiting! – Estelle
