In a perfect world, all proper Get-To-Know-Brooklyn outings would include a Saturday trip to Melody Lanes. It's a timeless relic whose crowds range from young and rowdy to old and surly, with hilariously dated neon decor. The bar complies with all unspoken standards: it's a small room located right inside the venue with easy round-the-corner access to the vending machine and the cheese fry canteen, walled-off to keep the underage at bay and decorated by a large facing mirror, a five-screen sports lineup, and a section of industrial carpet marked by bowling pins and, one assumes, the well-scrubbed remnants of last year's nachos.
