Me, Mr Lola and a coupla buddies have recently returned from New York City. Easily the most memorable aspect of the trip were the fun times we had in Brooklyn, or more specifically Williamsburg. Shopping for thrift, slurping locally brewed ales and watching rock 'n' roll in a bowling alley were some of the delights we sampled.
