Bowling, the sport of kings, got its start in 1162, when Richard the Lionheart lined up peasants in a V-shaped wedge and barreled into them crown-first, scattering them across the jousting range. Knock 'em silly with today's Groupon: for $12, you get one of two bowling packages at PINZ in Studio City, depending on the day of the week. Between Monday and Thursday and until 5 p.m. on Friday, you get three games of bowling (up to an $18 value), plus shoe rental (a $4 value) and take-home-able novelty socks (a $4.66 value). On Friday after 5 p.m. through Sunday close at 1 a.m., you get two games of bowling (up to an $18 value) and shoe rental (a $4 value).
With the flawless calculations of automatic scoring, bowlers are free to roll as they please under the groovy lights and the sound of balls humming down the 32 lanes. On certain nights, Rock N' Bowl is in full effect, providing an energetic bowltrack to the pin busting. Take a break between games with a game of mini table bowling on the adjacent billiards tables or storm the air-hockey battlefields.
Besides strengthening thumbs, drinking muscles, ankles, follicles, and Jeff Bridges impressions, bowling at PINZ strengthens socio-familial bonds by giving friends and families a casual, nonviolent arena to challenge each other over chit-chat and fermented ales. This all-inclusive atmosphere makes PINZ the ideal venue for introducing friends from different social circles. Bring your poetry-penning friends to play your fantasy-football buddies or build camaraderie with coworkers after a long day of coworking.

Pinz Entertainment Center
Each week, the 32 lanes at Pinz sparkle beneath the strobe lights and disco balls of Shake, Rattle & Bowl. When they’re not glowing or being incubated by confused chickens, the bowling balls can be hurled by visitors and league bowlers alike, rolling swiftly past the 10-foot video screens that line the alley’s far wall. Behind the scoring table, in the VIP billiard room, plasma TVs help to ensure that guests can play pool without missing critical sports moments or any commercials starring famous cats. And in the on-site arcade, players can enjoy more than 40 games including air hockey, skee-ball, and video bowling.
