Last Second NYE Plans: Chuckle Bowl

By Marcus Gilmer in Arts & Entertainment on Dec 31, 2008 5:40PM

2008_12_31_chucklebowl.jpg If you're like us (and by "us" I actually mean "me") and have no solid New Year's Eve plans for tonight, we'd like to suggest tonight's third annual Chuckle Bowl. In conjunction with the Lincoln Lodge and Tight Five Productions, the fine folks at Blewt! (who are responsible for Impress These Apes) bring us a fine evening of comedy, bowling, and fun. The fun happens at Lincoln Square Lanes and besides free pizza and a fully-stocked bar (with specials like $3 domestic beer and $4 shots), all 12 lanes will be open for bowling with video screens showcasing some hilarious videos and short films and music from DJ “Bubbles Sanchez.” But perhaps the best thing about this shindig will be the one-night-only revival of the live-action game show Don't Spit The Water.

The, uh, other best part about the event? It's cheap: $25. At that price, it's one of the best New Year's party deals around. While advance tickets are gone, there are still some cash tickets left, so call Uncle Fun at 773-477-8223 or Lincoln Square Lanes at 773-561-8191.

Tonight, 9 p.m. - 1 a.m., Lincoln Square Lanes, 4874 N. Lincoln Ave., $20 (advance) or $25 (door)
