Best new nightlife activity: Shuffleboard Photo Credit: Anthony Lanzilote Two words you didn’t expect to work? Shuffleboard nightclub. But it does. Big time. Since opening earlier this year, the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club has been drawing crowds on a nightly basis to try their hand at pushing pucks. The masterful cocktails, food trucks, bingo nights and laid-back vibe don’t hurt, either. $40/hour per lane; 514 Union St., Gowanus, 347- 223-4410, royalpalmsshuffle.com Best park trend: Piers as playgrounds Photo Credit: Flickr/joshsjackson Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 2 opened this year, bringing with it courts for basketball, handball, bocce and shuffleboard (there it is again), as well as a roller rink. It’s just the latest pier-as-playground park to enhance the city's waterfront in recent years, following in the wake of Pier 51 and Pier 25 on the Hudson, and Brooklyn Bridge Park’s other multiple piers.
