Unfortunate birthday; need fun place

I have the unfortunate birthday (day after Christmas), and the double whammy of it being my 30th. Um, and I'm new to New York.

Most are burnt out after the holiday and revving up for New Year's. Any ideas for a fun, not too expensive place?

Dinner will be followed by bowling, just to give an idea of how casual.

Thanks for suggestions.

  1. Preferred part(s) of town? Cuisines?

      Any cuisine, and I think we are bowling at Bowlmor, so probably mid-town and below.

    2. Crispo is the ticket!

        I like the Crispo idea.
        Chinatown Brasserie is fun and as long as you watch what you order it isn't too expensive.

      2. Well if you want to stick relatively near Bowlmor, you can go to Crispo, Salam, Highline, Alta, Lupa, Mercadito Grove, Mexicana Mama, etc. You have quite a wide swath from which to choose.
