Johanna Botta gets a lesson on how to properly push some biscuits from Jonathan Schnapp, owner of the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club.
Nintendo and indie developer Yacht Club Games announced they would be releasing an amiibo toy model of Yacht Club's popular Shovel Knight character. Physical merchandise for an independent video game on store shelves is an unprecedented move, especially considering Nintendo's past relationship with indies.
Johanna Botta stops by to push some biscuits and sample the modern leisure and fun vintage vibe at The Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club, located in the burgeoning Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn. The world’s first shuffleboard night club, Royal Palms is housed in a 1919 Printing Press, has 18 shuffleboard courts, and offers tropical drinks and a variety of food -- thanks to an ever-shifting lineup of food trucks that drive right into the building!
