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