Snoop Dogg performing at Brooklyn Bowl
Yes, that is Snoop Dogg. Yes, he’s wearing a Yankees jersey. And yes, I I got to shoot him performing at Brooklyn Bowl Monday night.
Yes. Snoop Dogg performed at Brooklyn Bowl. And I was there to shoot it. Crazy.
It was a pretty fantastic show, he performed old and new songs, going through all the classics along with some of his newer hits.
It was surreal standing in Brooklyn and hearing the voice of the west doing Hypnotize in tribute to BIG. More surreal was the fact that he was playing a space like Brooklyn Bowl instead of the Garden. The concert space fits 600 people, which can be huge or intimate depending on the show. The venue has become one of my favorites to cover, not just because of the amazing acts they book, but also the food and a choice beer selection. Without turning into a shill for the place, let me just say that I’d be coming here regularly even if I wasn’t shooting for Examiner.
I Love Vinyl Party at Brooklyn Bowl
I’ve been there a lot lately, covering I Love Vinyl’s first Brooklyn party and the night before I shot the Air Guitar Regional Championships, which was a whole lot of ridiculous.
Air Guitar World Championships at Brooklyn Bowl
Like I said, ridiculous.

I didn’t spend all my venue love on Brooklyn Bowl. I did find myself at The Bell House a few times this month. Last week, I went to a blogger meet up hosted by Brooklyn Based, FIPS and Brokelyn. That was a lot of fun just for finally being able to put faces to names.
Good Spirits at The Bell House
A week earlier, I was also at Bell House grazing through the snacks and cocktails on hand at Good Spirits, Edible Brooklyn‘s tribute to food and booze in the better borough. The spicy red sangritas that this lady was pouring as chasers was probably my favorite drinks of the night, which probably goes to show that liquor is wasted on me.
That’s all just a bit of what I’ve been posting about this month. Habana Outpost reopened for the season and I’m starting up the Brokelyn 25 bar survey again this week after a bit of a hiatus. So, stay tuned.
