300 New York at Chelsea Piers would be a really good time if you regularly roll with 300 in your pocket ready to burn. I don't but I do roll with Groupon. The Groupon deal made it worth bowling at 300 but not enough to bring me back. I just find it ridiculously expensive and so out of the way in regards to public transportation. Parking costs an arm and a leg. If only 300 validated. I met up with an old friend to bowl. We checked in at the front and the lady told us we could go ahead and get our shoes. There was no one at the counter and the lockers behind looked like public lockers so we took it upon ourselves to get our shoes. After all, the lady did say we could. We were later interrupted by an employee who told us we were not allowed to be back there. Confused, we went back up front and waited awhile for our bowling balls. They are slow at 300. There wasn't even a line. 300 placed us in a lane next to a family. We kind of wished we got our own lane since there were 4 empty lanes next to us, but whatever. The balls were in good shape, the lanes were very slippery, and I bowled a decent game (over a hundred). I found my shoes to be very tight even though they were my size. Much like the bowling alley, they also had that brand new look. 300 New York has a really nice ambiance. The video screens are state of the art and the music they play is very current. There are strobe lights and parties all around. I suppose it is a good place to host an event. It is impeccably clean. We decided to stay for dinner and ordered a plate of nachos and the trio of fries. The food was really good - total Super Bowl type - in other words, a jazzed up fat fest. Thank you Groupon for allowing me to bowl at Chelsea Piers. It was my first time visiting the complex. I would have bowled a second game but at $11 each, we decided to pass.

The FOOD definitely lives up the hype that is BOBBY FLAY! Good selection of various types of burgers (beef, turkey, chicken) *Be sure to tell them how you want it cooked, because most of the time they cook them medium-pink* Milkshakes are absolutely amazing. I recommend the COFFE shake. Fries are all handcut and come with very good dipping sauce. Food comes out very quickly. It has a COSI style service, i.e. order from the counter, they hand you number, and then food is brought out to you. Tends to get very busy around lunch since its on a college campus. Try getting there before 12 or after 2 to avoid the massive student rush. Prices are all fairly cheap - Burgers : $7.5 - Fries : $3.5 Definitely worth trying out yo!

Note: this is 330 Ritch, the listing is all wrong! Go for their weekly Thursday Popscene Party: the best source for indie and brit rock, some serious dancing, and oftentimes intimate band performances.
