When visitors step inside Thunder Alley Bowling Center, they only need to listen to know where the owners came up with the name. Bowling balls hurtle down 36 lanes and smatter pins, resulting in an uproar of cheering bowlers and a symphony of rented shoes shuffling across the slick floor. As points tally overhead on a series of screens, bowlers can root for their friends or refuel with burgers, salads, and wings at the Strike Zone Snack Bar. Elsewhere, a pro shop caters to athletes’ equipment needs, and on Fridays and Saturdays, blacklights transform the alley into a glow-in-the-dark wonderland for cosmic bowl. The lanes also come equipped with removable bumpers to accommodate younger bowlers and bowling balls with astigmatism.
Nestled in the cool shadows of Cheyenne Mountain, Cheyenne Shadows Golf Club’s 18-hole course invites clubbers with its scenic layout cleaved through high-desert terrain. Drives knife through the air with a little extra gusto, as the dry desert air—at an elevation of 6,224-feet above sea level—and golf angels conspire to add length to shots. The club’s verdant expanse also encompasses a multifaceted learning center, including a driving range with grass hitting areas, a short-game green flanked by a practice bunker, a putting green, and a three-hole children’s course. The casual dining room of Mulligan’s Grill awaits to quench hunger pangs with a menu of burgers, Philly cheesesteak sandwiches, and salads.
Borriello Brothers Pizza didn't just copy New York-style pizza?they imported it. Owned by New York natives, the pizza joint pays tribute to the city's staple, craftting their pizzas with attention to detail. Their sauce comes from California tomatoes, they only use 100% real whole milk mozzarella cheese, and they layer their pizzas with sausage made from prime cuts of pork. The result is a pie that grew out of original New York recipes, just as the city's skyscrapers sprout from cracks in the sidewalks. In addition to traditional NY-style pizzas, they serve Sicilian crust pizzas, and feature signature pies with toppings such as Genoa salami, sliced steak, and baked ziti. The menu also incorporates calzones, pastas, and other Italian specialties.
