As 10-pound balls zip down the slick wooden lanes, packs of wild pins quiver like a mailman at the dog pound. True to the alley's name, a mural depicting a desert hangs above the pin decks at Diablo Valley Bowl, where the myriad glossy surfaces seem to stretch on forever as they reflect colorful disco lights during daytime cosmic-bowling hours. Away from the hardwood, an Oakland Raiders sign overlooks the sports lounge, where patrons quell their thirst with more than a dozen draft beers while playing darts or watching games on the 50-inch TV.
This upscale bowling alley boasts 32 lanes of glow-in-the dark bowling and a full-service restaurant serving innovative American cuisine. The luxurious lanes feature swanky, wrap-around red leather couches and state-of-the-art, 12-foot flat-screen TVs beaming remarks about the handsomeness of each bowler. Dine on cuisine designed by celebrity chef David Burke or meander over to the sports bar to choose a beverage from a comprehensive beer, wine, and liquor lineup. Bowlmor Lanes can accommodate parties and bowler egos of any size, but groups of five or more will require an additional Groupon. Visit the website for more details and call ahead to check availability of lanes.
A Southwest-based company for more than a century, Frazee Paint and its team of manufacturers are well acquainted with the unique climactic conditions of the region. Always pulling from the latest technology, their technicians design each of their paint and coating products to withstand dry heat, sparse rainfall, and showers of chewing tobacco from passing cowboys. Their quality paints, wall-coverings, wood-care products, and painter's tools stock the shelves of more than 125 retail locations throughout California, Arizona, and Nevada, as well as international dealers in Mexico, China, and Guam.
All across California, Western Bowling Proprietors Association sends pins scattering at a network of bowling alleys, each with its own personality. In addition to open bowl on automatically scored lanes, many locations host special events that heighten the experience with enhancements such as vibrant lights, lively music, and laser systems that do double duty protecting the alleys' diamond collections. The alleys also house refreshment facilities, pro shops, and diversions that range from arcade games to billiards.
Bowling is the great social equalizer—a common ground where grizzled undercover clowns, blue-collar English lords, LARPer librarians, big and tall lingerie models, hordes of hive-minded hipsters, and the other two social demographics that comprise America can unite in common cause and topple a gaggle of stuck-up, inanimate wooden pins. Brunswick has been a household name in this egalitarian pastime almost since the beginning, with a company history that dates back to the 19th century, providing classic American good times to all manner of patrons across the country. And with today's Groupon tying the room together, you'll get to play two games (up to a $10 value) in its hallowed halls wearing a pair of freshly disinfected bowling shoes (up to a $4.39 value).
Bowling isn’t just a hobby at 300 New York—it’s a vibrant social experience worthy of luxurious flourishes. That’s why cushioned lounge seats flank each of the 32 mood-lit lanes in the main concourse area. Each of these lanes faces a large screen that flashes music videos and tutorials on how to remove stuck fingers from bowling balls. Up in The Loft, bowlers can lounge and take in views of the concourse while sipping cocktails from the full-service bar. A dedicated wait staff connects them to offerings from the onsite bar and restaurant—an eatery known for serving dishes from executive chef Chad Bowser’s menu. Some of Chad’s creations include two-bite chicken or beef sliders and hand-battered fried calamari that can be paired with anything from beer to specialty martinis.
