After dropping into the soft-opening of Gowanus’s new shuffleboard bar this past weekend, we’ve stopped oo-ing and ah-ing long enough to talk to Jonathan Schnapp, who tells us the free shuffleboard will continue tonight and tomorrow. Huzzah! After that, he and co-owner Ashley Albert will take a breather for a few days and hopefully open fully next week. At this early stage in the game, the Royal Palms Website is short on details and the public is clamoring for information, so we asked Schnapp to tell us how all of this is going to work. There’s a lot going on here (DJs! bands! food trucks! 10 shuffleboard courts!), so we went ahead and — as best we could with our trembling hands — broke it into a FAQ. All of this, of course, is subject to change.
