It’s been so quiet on West Main Street in Honeoye Falls that you could hear a pin drop. That, of course, would be if there actually were any pins dropping. That has not been the case for some time now, but Seth Wile and Megan Phillips have plans to change all that. The couple has an exciting strategy to breathe new life into the old bowling alley in town.
Their plan is to combine the bowling facility with a craft brewery in a joint operation they are calling the Okay Beer Company at West Main Lanes. There are many components at play in this process such as kitchen remodeling, liquor license applications, redoing floors, painting walls and reworking the bar and dining area. When we spoke to them on Monday, it was easy to sense their excitement about this endeavor they are diving into.
With so many irons in the fire, Seth and Megan outlined what they refer to as a “phased opening.” They hope to hear those pins dropping again in the bowling lanes by September, perhaps as early as Labor Day. During the time of remodeling the kitchen and dining area they hope to have food available through local vendors and/or food trucks.
Here’s how Seth and Megan summarized their mission… “Our main hope at Okay Beer Co. is to give the community back what they’ve been missing – craft beer, bowling, and great food! The Village has recently lost many of its beloved food and beverage locations and we aim to help fill this void. We will also be building up the outdoor space giving families of all ages a place to gather, celebrate and enjoy one another’s company.”
They are in the process of forming leagues for the fall and encourage anyone interested to contact them through the following outlets.
