I love finding out about a new bar opening! Yay! This one I spied on Williamsburg Is Dead. Gothamist also speaks of it this week.

Radegast Hall & Biergarten (113 N. 3rd St) is apparently suppose to open today and it looks like a pretty cool joint. I have to agree with the poster that I hope it’s not “pink polos and excessive use of the word “Bro” folks, either.

There’s this German place near my friends house in Staten Island – Killmeyer’s Old Bavaria Inn – that I just love. They sell these yummy large soft pretzels that go down great with beers. In the warmer months they have this fantastic outdoor space where they have live music and a bar gazebo. I’d be in heaven if this joint took after that place.

But that “Veal Schnitzel w/Scallion Sour Cream Potato Salad” for $17 scares me, too.

Greenpoint Gutter

I can’t even believe it. The rumor is true! We’re getting a bowling alley and the shit isn’t in Williamsburg – it’s in Greenpoint (200 N 14th St, between Wythe and Berry (718.387.3585)!

Gothamist reported on this wonderful little bit of info and they’ve got a bunch of pics in their post. The place looks fantastic. Totally old school and they’re even gonna sell pitchers of beer. Of course, it looks like there are about ten lanes total which means that it’ll probably be virtually impossible to get a chance to play on a Friday or Saturday night, but still, it’s pretty fucking awesome.

And at this time I will reiterate once again about how I desperately want a dart league to startup in the ‘hood.
