There's something for bowlers of all striped shoes at Crofton Bowling Centre. Visitors target pins on 48 shiny waxed lanes beneath bright lights?except during Millennium Bowling, when a DJ playing rock, punk, soul, and funk keeps the black-lit party going. But bowling's not the only thing the alley has got going for it. The arcade bleeps and bloops with digital fun, while The Roost serves beer and cocktails under the glow of high-definition TVs broadcasting all manner of sports. An onsite kitchen also dishes out a full day's worth of meals in addition to the expected snacks, offering everything from ham and egg breakfast sandwiches to bacon cheeseburgers to fried fish and fries.

Things are a little smaller at Glen Burnie Bowling Center, though the facility itself encompasses 30 lanes and a full-service snack bar, named GB Ducks Cafe. The petite objects in question are the pins and balls themselves. Glen Burnie celebrates the tradition of duckpin bowling, which incorporates lighter pins and smaller, easy-to-throw balls that almost never hatch into dragons. The objects collide during league games and open play. The smaller equipment also accommodates kids, and young bowlers can start playing in leagues as early as four years old. The coaches and instructors who oversee these programs hold certifications from the National Duckpin Youth Association.
