The Daily Shortlist April 21
One of the best drummers around, member of The Roots and Jimmy Fallon’s late-night band, also happens to DJ every Thursday night at Brooklyn Bowl. So for a more up close and personal look at America’s number one funkateer, check out DJ ?uestlove’s Bowl Train and see just how deep this man’s record collection is! Brooklyn Bowl is a self contained playland for adults that you don’t even have to leave, so your night is wrapped up in one venue. For dinner, check out Blue Ribbon, part of the highly rated eateries in the city, you’ll find southern fare including fried chicken and BBQ, some crazy shakes & floats, and more. For drinks, just walk about 20 feet to the bar where they offer nine draft beers from Brooklyn. Finally, and most obvious, there’s 16 lanes of bowling. While the wait is generally long, where else can you throw a strike and see a great band at the same time?
