  • Bowlerama Lanes
    In 2012, Bowlerama Lanes upgraded its equipment and emerged with its 28 lanes now covered in sleek synthetic material and bumpers that can be called into action at will. Overheard, 40-inch LCD screens flicker with scores that have been calculated on high-tech Qubica Bowland X auto-scoring machines instead of dad's trusty finger abacus. Between frames, bowlers can grab a bite or a drink at the snack counter, where they serve up a menu of sandwiches, pizza, and shareable snacks.

  • Maplewood Lanes Bowling Center
    Jeanne and her brother, John, smile as they look out over the 36 honey-hued lanes at Maplewood Lanes Bowling Center, where three generations of their family work and swap tales accumulated since the business’s inception in 1976. The center's crew presides over the lanes, helping young players lower automatic bumpers and robots compose love letters to scoring systems. Between frames, bowlers refuel in the bar and grill, which pours imported beers alongside hand-tossed pizzas. The sound of clinking glasses and scattering pins form a percussive soundtrack that drifts out to the patio, which is open year round thanks to radiant heat, fire pits, and fences that keep out tourists trying to see changing leaves.
