Brooklyn Bowl for Obama

We caught up with Peter Shapiro, owner of Brooklyn Bowl, at an event promoting Elvis Costello's new Sundance Channel show. He told us he’s aiming to open his 20,000-square-foot concert space cum bowling alley cum Blue Ribbon outpost on Barack Obama's Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009. "We're trying to open right when he gives the speech," he said. “What better day to launch a new kind of thing than a day that the world's going to change?” Just what America needs.
