Brown Deer Lanes sprawls before sparring sphere tossers a synthetic battlefield of meticulously maintained lanes and brave battalions of crisp, white pins. Competitors will slide into a pair of prismatic kicks, which are available in half sizes, before carefully adopting a choice ball from a robust harvest of able orbs. After evading gutters, picking up strikes, and high-fiving gregarious pinsetters, victors can celebrate by noshing on the sizzling slices of a large, two-topping pizza. Although not included with today's Groupon, Brown Deer Lanes also volunteers its thundering alleys to parties and frequent glow bowls. A fully stocked menu houses a variety of other snacks, while weekly Packer parties gather to cheer on Wisconsin's revered cricket team.

JB's 41 35 bowling lanes gleam with the possibilities of scoring a coveted turkey. And to help beginners and kids get closer to this goal, they can request inflated bumpers. On Friday and Saturday nights, the alley transforms with heart-thumping music and black lights for a Galactic bowling experience. The waxed hardwood lanes become mirrors for the flashing, colored lights, morphing the space into something akin to a nightclub, which is how most scientists describe outer space. Beyond bowling, the joint houses a video arcade chock full of 50 games and a restaurant and full bar to refuel weary bowlers.
Bigger isn?t always better, and that's especially true at Koz?s Mini Bowl. As you might guess from the name, everything here is just a bit smaller, from the bowling balls to the little man who cleans up the pins. Practically the only thing that hasn't been scaled down is the sense of competition; the goal is still to get as many strikes and spares as possible. As players palm miniature bowling balls and toss them down four lanes, a jukebox fills the alley with classic tunes and a bartender fills pitchers to the brim with beer.
Making new friends doesn't have to involve going to the bar or lurking in the grocery store produce section. It could mean joining Milwaukee Social Club, a local organization that schedules sports leagues and special events. Players have their choice of sports to play year round, from Touch Football in the Fall to Softball, Volleyball, and Kickball in the summer. A second season of new leagues has been added for participants. They can also enjoy events such as Packer Viewing parties and the exclusive "MSC Day-Off".
