Lucky Strike Lanes, the "controversial" bowling alley in Larry Silverstein's West 42nd Street rental tower River Place, is opening this weekend. UrbanDaddy: "While you may have boozed your way through a softball game this past spring, you probably haven't poured a Greyhound in between seven-ten splits recently. But show up to Lucky Strike (bring your cadre of ne'er-do-wells), and have your pick of 22 lanes, 11 pool tables, a full bottle-service menu and some classic bar food." We've learned not to order cocktails or food at bowling alleys (thanks Leisure Time Bowl), but this place looks snazzy enough to risk it. [UrbanDaddy; Previously]
