Day 11: Melody Lanes
Not great, not bad, but some other third thing.
🎳 Melody Lanes in Sunset Park
It looks like this bowling alley has a 3 on Yelp and I guess I agree with that. It’s lacking almost all of the ideal traits that I described in my latest Perfectly Imperfect with its blank grey walls, Crazy Frog & Kid’s Bob music videos projected above the lanes, screaming children, lane chat system, insane Bowling Lives matter t-shirt design (seen below), and angry staff… but… all of those x-factors create a kind of chaotic & strange charm that keeps me coming back.
Melody Lanes reminds me of Saugus Massachusetts, a town near where I grew up, and that brings me great comfort. It’s a taste of home.
Have a nice day
