World's First Green Bowling Alley E-mail

I haven't had a chance to visit, but I'm sure this is a place The Dude would approve. The Brooklyn Bowl has taken steps to reduce, reuse and recycle. It sounds like they've also been able to keep their business a hip and cool place in the process.

On Tuesday, the bowling center, music venue, and restaurant got a boost in those efforts from the U.S. Green Building Council, which awarded Brooklyn Bowl LEED certification.

Here is a list of some of their Earth-friendly features:

  • “String” bowling pin machines that use 75% less energy than their traditional counterparts;
  • LED stage lights, which consume 90% less power than more prevalent fixtures;
  • Dividers for the space made from glass panels salvaged from the nearby Brooklyn Navy Yard; and
  • No beer bottles (yep, you read that right)… and the beers on tap are from local breweries.

So if you have a chance, please check this place out.  Like I said, I can't make any promises because I haven't actually seen the place, but from the image in the article, I think it's pretty obvious they're achievers.  They even have free bowling and music regularly scheduled - http://www.brooklynbowl.com/free-bowling-6pm-7pm-free-show-arpline/.
