Ballston Spa's Tippy Bowl
Tippy Bowl, named The Saratogian's Best of Bowling in 2009, boasts brightly colored walls, 14 classic lanes, a fully stocked snack bar, and opportunities for families and friends to come together to strap on a pair of fashionable shoes. Up to four bowling bipeds can enjoy two hours of ball heaving, pizza munching, soda slurping, and repeated attempts to trick stoic bowling pins into smiling and losing their jobs. Saturday nights from 10 p.m. to midnight, natural light gives way to the ultraviolet spectrum during glow bowl. Players roll fluorescent balls down lanes glowing with sci-fi luminescence as music blasts in the background. After unplugging thumbs, head to Tippy Bowl's newly renovated snack bar for a treat, or unwind in the lounge, replete with DirecTV sports channels and freedom from taunting 7–10 splits.
