Chewie, I’m Home! The Rocka Rolla Mother Ship in Brooklyn.


Rock and Roll, baby!

Hard rock. Heavy metal. Brews served in humongous chilled goblet glasses. Old school beer memorabilia, classic rock star photos, shuffleboard, and 70’s style wooden paneling on the walls. Classic cheesecake posters of Farrah Fawcett and Cheryl Tiegs in the game room. This is the world you discover at Rocka Rolla based in Brooklyn, NYC.

It’s like a demented version of a bar if the Wayne’s World dudes decided to open a bar in their basement with partners Beavis and Butthead! Continue reading Chewie, I’m Home! The Rocka Rolla Mother Ship in Brooklyn.

Located on St Marks Place it’s below ground in the Devil’s lair. Usually, it seems so crowded and busy that you have to wait in line. The night we arrived to worship the ice cream delicacies at this altar of dessert treachery we had to wait for a bit until a table opened up.

The 4DX Movie Experience. This NYC Guy Approves!

4DX is an awesome way to see an action or sci-fi movie! It’s like being on a ride at Universal Studios for two hours! A bit pricey at almost $30 a ticket but worth it for a specific flick. Definitely a way to do a dinner and movie night with some friends. You’ll be laughing the whole time.

Thanks to Yelp we were able to experience Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 on 4DX as part of a Yelp Elite event and was blown away by how much fun it was. Free popcorn and soda was also a nice perk! At times I did see someone’s popcorn go flying here and there. Bouncy Bouncy! Continue reading The 4DX Movie Experience. This NYC Guy Approves!
