They take their Skee-ball seriously at this South Williamsburg mecca of cheap beer. A Skee-ball machine greets you in the tiny front room, while the back boasts a proper game room stocked with … more Skee-ball! For die hard players, the bar hosts a semi-competitive league – known as Brewskeeball – that meets on Sundays, Mondays, and Wednesdays. As for the rest of the regulars, they come for the cozy atmosphere and prices that are uber-friendly: $5 will get you a can of Moo Thunder or Dale’s Pale Ale, Genesee Cream Ale is $3, and Stella and Sweet Action are $6. Cans are the name of the game -- the bar carries over 15 canned beers, from Whale's Tale to Pork Slap. One of the best deals is the $4 Genny Dog (a Genesee cream ale and a decent hot dog) or the $6 10th Ball (a cream ale and a shot of well whiskey). Weekday crowds are mostly locals, while the weekends see some spillover from The Lodge next door.
Tuesdays and Thursdays offer free skeeball and a free hot dog or pretzels with a drink.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
