note: being that Ridgewood and Bushwick are now construed as the same thing, The Burning Bush occasionally covers this beat.
Milo’s Yard may have caused a recent outrage for not actually having an accessible backyard, but this has, apparently, not been enough to stop the New York City Board of Landmarks to deem the bar worthy of “mile”post status based on its rare and robust collection of pinball machines located toward the back of the establishment.
“We feel that the commitment Milo’s Yard has shown toward the nostalgia millennials crave is truly noble, and deserves to be immortalized with a giant plaque made out of vintage pinballs,” stated head of the board John Diksuk, a 41-year-old from Montauk. Manager Milo de Milo humbly accepted the award by gushing, “I just knew Milo’s Yard was going to be what would put Ridgewood on the map.”
Since the announcement, the bar has received a surge in patronage, most of the crowd consisting of men wearing glasses with dirty hands that end up further soiling the feel of the prized machines, but hey, a client is a client. Get there early to reserve your post at the pinball machine today.
