After Hurricane Sandy hit, I had a lot of people asking how I fared. While my building was on the brink of rising waters, my apartment, located above the 20th floor, was fine. The bowling alley located on the first floor of my building, however, didn’t do so well with bracing itself against the storm. With construction crews working round the clock on the renovations, the staff was determined to reopen their doors to the public and accomplished this feat in a mere 17 days! After substantial renovations following Hurricane Sandy, Lucky Strike Lanes will celebrate its latest setup with a big event on Saturday, December 8 (tomorrow) starting at 9pm.

The event is open to the public and will offer guests specials on the new food and drink menus. I’m looking forward to seeing the new look and feel of the space, which will lend a unique combination of a vintage vibe with contemporary décor- perfect for upcoming holiday parties, special occasions and nights out. Additionally, Lucky Strike will début their new menu, with options of shared plates such as Fish or Short Rib tacos, Smokey Grilled Buffalo Wings, and Belgian Fries to name a few. Yum!

“We all know that New Yorkers are resilient in catastrophic situations. The Lucky Strike family really pulled together to make the impossible possible. I couldn’t be prouder of the commitment and dedication shown by the staff,” says Founder and CEO, Steven Foster.

(Just to be clear, this is in Manhattan – ‘Hello Brooklyn’ is the name of the band who will be performing at the re-opening – I thought I should put that in there since I know I have a tendency to look at things quick and sometimes get the details wrong at first glance.)
