Bowl-a-Rama… Herf-a-Rama… NYC…YEAH!

Being of Polish origin, you’d just assume several things about me right off the bat – half of them involving six guys changing a light bulb and the second half involving kielbasa and pierogies. Well let me tell you about the third half, and that is about a Pole’s favorite pastime, a little game polish 1known as kegeling to some, and, bowling to the rest of the world. Now it’s a known fact that we people of the Warsaw variety have bowling in our blood – there’s also a lot of vodka and cigar smoke as well, but bowling seems to be the game of choice for my people. Damn, I remember uncle Stosh once rolled a 298 with both arms in a cast (okay, yeah, he fell off the ladder changing a bulb, you happy?) Now while I am certainly bragging about our expertise in the alleys, I unfortunately have to admit that I, personally, am the worst bowler in all of creation… let’s just say I suck like a Hoover.

Prohibition_InteriorQuite sometime ago I vowed never to bowl again when my daughter at the time was 9 years old and beat me by 30 pins. I was officially through with renting crazy blue shoes and smelling of lane oil – I mean I swore off the game of my ancestors for good! And then something amazing happened… I found out about a spectacular event being held by Midtown Cigar in New York City, coming this May, and the bowling bug has bit me once more! Just when I was out, they pulled me back in!

Picture 19Seems that the good people at Midtown Cigar are throwing a bowling / cigar event – the likes that no one has ever seen before! Bowlmor Lanes in Times Square is allowing the invasion of an army of cigars smokers for one night on May 18th… TWO FLOORS of bowling and cigar smoking to accommodate 600 herfing lovers of the leaf! Talk about a lucky strike – Just look at the party these people are throwing…

• 3 hours of smoking premium sticks at one of coolest alleys on earth, smack in the middle of Times Square, in NYC

• You’ll get a top-notch goody bag loaded with world-famous cigars

Altadis, General, and Villager Cigars will be there!

• You’ll get to meet and greet master cigar blender, Jose Seijas, maker of Romeo y Julieta, Montecristo, TTT Trinidad, and H. Upmann

• A real live Playboy Bunny will be hopping about the premises to throw off your game, for sure!

• Prizes and Giveaways galore!

• Premium Open Bar!

• Sliders, Wings, and Alley food from celebrity chef, David Burke of Stadium Grille

• Free Shoe Rental (The clincher for me!)

BEST OF ALL… the Price of admission has just dropped to $99! WOW!!!

Guys, my ancestry is beckoning and I simply cannot miss this truly spectacular event. (I checked out Bowlmor Lanes on the web and the place looks freakin’ insane!) I don’t care where you live, this could be a once in a lifetime deal, and where better to hang with your cigar loving homeys than the heart of the Big Apple?! (Easy for me to say with a drive through the Lincoln Tunnel.)

Okay, I’ve got the official details below… You can’t spare to miss this one… so get your minds out of the gutter and I hope I’ll see you brothers there!
