Bowland Centers specialize in family entertainment, boasting multiple lanes and modern scoring systems that add a degree of leisure to any frame. Lanes are equipped with kid-friendly pop-up bumpers and spacious seating areas—the prime place to lace up a fresh pair of shoes ($3.25 per pair). Play game by game ($4.25 per game) or rent a lane by the hour ($16 before 6 p.m., $20 after 6 p.m.) while taking in the symphony of pin-knocks and hand-fives. En route to the semi-perfect game, guests can also stop by Nemo's Sports Cafe, which features ample amounts of eats and drinks, big screens televisions, and people who know your name, because you typed it up on the scoreboard.
A strictly 21+ establishment, BackStreets Sports Bar sates starving stomachs with a munchable menu and quenches thirsty gullets in indoor and outdoor bar areas. Guests can order a cold beer or carefully crafted cocktail and along with deep-fried crab fritters to prevent insides from sloshing audibly ($6.75). A Meat Lovers pizza piles pepperoni, sausage, ham, bacon, and meatballs on a 12-inch ($12.95) or 16-inch ($15.95) frame, perfect for splitting or tossing like a Frisbee with carnivorous friends. Burgers built from quarter-pound ($4.25) or half-pound ($5.50) foundations come stacked with chosen cheeses and favored veggies, and specialty sandwiches range from a basic bacon, egg, and cheese ($4.25) to the fully loaded hot Italian sub with ham, salami, bologna, cheese, and veggies bathed in oil and vinegar ($6.95).
The aroma of cigars hits you as you walk into the spacious humidor. Boxes line the walls, filled with everything from Ashtons to Gurkhas and Don Pepin Garcias. This humidor is the handy work of Rich Castiano, who grew up watching his father Sal enjoy a good smoke. To share his love of cigars with others, Rich established the World Famous Cigar Bar and stocked it with the finest stogies around. He even created his own special blend in honor of Sal—the 1929 Castiano, a box-pressed cigar featuring Nicaraguan filler, a Jalapa binder, and an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper.
