For the boozy nostalgist
Brewskee-BallThe deal: Billyburgers pack Full Circle Bar (318 Grand St between Havemeyer St and Marcy Ave, Williamsburg, Brooklyn; 347-725-4588, brewskeeball.com) during this nearly decade-old league’s three annual seasons of Skee-Ball play. Teams of three roll their best ten rounds of nine shots over an eight-week period, which culminates in a March Madness–style “post-skeeson,” all in the hopes of securing a custom-engraved crystal mug filled with beer.
Note to newbies: The goal of the game is to rack up a high score (duh), so aim for the tougher 40- and 50-point holes when lobbing.
There was this one time…when, as patrons sang along to Weezer, William Ocean attempted a perfect 630 on his final frame to tie and force sudden death. The place hushed, Ocean nailed it, and the bar erupted.
