At each of its Cleveland-area locations, Freeway Lanes allows bowlers to hone gutter-hugging curves. In addition to traditional, tenpin lanes, the alleys host indoor bocce ball courts and pool tables for players tired of breaking cues on 16-pound balls. Their expansive facilities also feature modern bowling amenities along with HD television screens and full-service restaurants. League opportunities are available for children, adults, and seniors and live bands frequent the alleys, filling the air with original melodies and providing just enough bass to knock down wobbling pins.
InterArt's professorial paintsmiths tutor guests on the art of creating art during group seminars held in their welcoming studio. Visit the acrylic atelier for the wineglass- and beer-mug-painting session to personalize glassware with your initials, favorite colors, or quotes from The Grapes of Wrath. Portrait-minded patrons may enjoy the canvas-painting session, in which pupils glide their brushes along prestretched 9"x12" canvases, adorning them with two-dimensional magnum opuses. InterArt's laid-back classes welcome participants of all skill levels and provide all the necessary masterpiece-crafting materials. Instructors lead lessons Thursday–Sunday and encourage guests to bring a bottle of wine or their libation of choice to complement the easygoing atmosphere. Today's Groupon awards access for two people, so purchasers can tote along a date, a good friend, or an avant-garde cat statue.
Yorktown Lanes boasts 40 lanes, each of which is equipped with automatic scoring systems. Just beyond the lanes' edge, a lineup of colorful vinyl chairs adds a touch of vintage class. And inside the newly renovated bar onsite, bartenders liberally pour spirits, draft brews, and other fine beverages. The alley also hosts birthday bowling parties in one of two private rooms, including a banquet hall that can host wedding receptions or graduate seminars on the difference between duckpins and regular bowling pins.
