The dining room at City Limits Sports Grill is a peaceful retreat from the bustling bowling center just outside, where pins clatter and leagues cheer beneath flat-screen TVs and a colorful wall mural. The grill's menu collects classic American comfort food, such as 13 kinds of grinders, St. Louis–style baby back ribs, and beer-battered fish sandwiches. Pints of beer or root-beer floats poured into frosty mugs help round out each meal. In addition to leagues, City Limits also hosts open bowling, birthday parties, and bowling fundraisers.
The independently owned Community Bowling Centers accommodate bowlers of all ages and abilities, featuring bumper-equipped lanes and lightweight balls designed for the hands of pintsize players. At 10 smoke-free locations throughout the region, guests enjoy open hours in addition to league opportunities and special events. The onsite bar serves ice-cold cups of soda or beer, which guests may raise in toasts to friendship and man's ability to hydrate himself. On select evenings, the alley lights turn down and the ethereal illumination of Glow N Bowl takes over with laser-light shows and fog machines. As balls roll down phosphorescent lanes, a sound track of thumping beats and alien distress calls saturates the space.
Wood-paneled walls and traditional pub décor surround diners and dart tossers in the dining areas of both Ford Lanes and Bel-Mark Lanes. The classic facilities host an array of gleaming, professional lanes that boast automatic scoring and are perfect for a night of cosmic bowling or chucking an ex-girlfriend’s snow-globe collection. Both alleys maintain open hours for groups and practicing individuals, and they also offer leagues for adults, seniors, and children. Each weekend, the pin-crushing arenas host karaoke contests, welcoming the musical talent of community members.
Established in 1959, Chelsea Lanes combines old-school charms with the modern convenience of smooth, polished lanes and automatic scoring. The lanes, which remain open until midnight on Friday and Saturday, also play host to leagues, birthday parties, and glow-bowling sessions, during which music videos and light shows cause the alley to sparkle like a disco ball at a paparazzi dance party.
