You won’t need your bowling shoes at Brooklyn Bowl this weekend. The state of the art green complex known to host everything from concerts to movie nights will be presenting a day of TEDx talks this Friday, December 2nd, featuring the most innovative and brilliant Brooklyn minds redefining the concept of the word “better.” Neighborhood leaders in music, art, design, and technology will be spending the day at the TEDx (x meaning independently organized TED event) conference discussing what we think of the world “better” and where and how we can apply it to the local community.
