Retiree chic shuffleboard goodness in the heart of Brooklyn

With ten shuffleboard courts, Floridian cocktails, live music & a rotating cast of food trucks, I’m thrilled to be an investor in The Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club. Two years in the making, doors are officially open and league nights are in full swing (watch out for The Flamingo Kids!). The 17,000 square-foot Palm Beach themed (think geriatric)¬†oasis in Gowanus was conceived by the dynamic duo of Ashley Albert and Jonathan Schnapp. The space is truly magical and even if you’re non-committal on the league, there’s plenty of booze for cheerleaders and lane rentals are available throughout the week and weekend. So, come take a load off and prepare for your golden years.

Bottle caps + beautiful logos = this!

Why can’t all bottle caps inform if they’re a twist off or not? I love this.
