It's not a 10-in-1.

Bowlmor lanes is an old time bowling alley in Greenwich Village that the hipster crowd has made popular again in their ironic way.

The roof of the building had several tennis courts that belonged to a local health club. The roof is enclosed in a bubble tent. Some time ago, Bowlmor took over the space and built in a dance/nightclub. They have now remodeled it with a carnival theme and put in a dozen games including a dunk tank, a funhouse VIP area, a bar and food service.

There will be a small stage with circus and some sideshow acts. It is possible that the Coney Island Sideshow will be doing a night there during the off season. And it is also possible that a VIP here at the Café will be a resident performer there as well.

Their opening night is this Thursday.

That bubble enclosure is already filled with hot air, so there will be no need for him. Though, the dunk tank does need a good bozo.

Was that a bubble enclosure, or bubba?

Sayeth Todd,

I love those guys--they were out in Arizona a couple of years back, Dunk Bobo..The crowd got a little worked up as the rubes out there had never heard or seen anything like it.. Ha!

The guy in the BoBo tank at the Utah State Fair was told to take it easy on the Marks. Watch what he said.

Just like the BCS not mention or post the word freaks on the show.

While Lori was taking the photo that Jim posted the guy in the BoBo tank told her that the Old Hippie (a reference to yours truly) had been there earlier taking photos.

Jack C had 3 shows on the midway, when Tiny Tina was ask to take her photo she had a come apart... Didn't want her photo taken.

Well that's Utah for Ya!

Great photographs by Lori Ballard.

Many years ago in Myrtle beach South Carolina they had a dunk tank themed as "The Creature Tank". The guy inside wore a Creature from the Black Lagoon costume while hurling the constant stream of insults.
I really liked it themed that way...a creature behind the bars and in a tank of water...it all made sense.
