There is nothing like it, anywhere. Thursday night Zydeco will not only entertain you, but give you a new hopeful look at humanity. You will not see a more diverse group of age, race and nationality all dancing with each other, changing partners, laughing and...More

If you're from out of town and don't necessarily know your way around I would suggest cabbing/ubering it there. It's not far. However, if you're in the mood to ride the streetcar all the way and then walk to Rock N' Bowl... More

We do have picnic tables inside the alley as well as a handful of high boy tables and chairs. If you are bowling, there are benching for you to sit on as well while you wait your turn.
