Bowling in Groves

Select Local Merchants

Let It Roll Bowl's lineup of 32 slick lanes invites locals in for a night of friendly competition accompanied by drinks and grub from its lounge and restaurant. Paintings of vibrant cityscapes line the walls of the facility, and each lane is outfitted with monitors that keep track of scoring and pins' heartbeats while competitors send orbs gliding down waxed paths.

Throughout the week, the alley spices up traditional play with a variety of specialty nights, including ones with karaoke and soul DJ sets; flashing neon lights accent classic rock tunes during "Rock N Cosmic Bowl". The on-site lounge keeps taps brimming with eight drafts and keeps glasses filled with a selection of wine, mixed drinks, and soda. Meanwhile, the kitchen of the connected Pizza RE churns out pizza by the slice or pie, with options such as the house's signature sweet jalapeno fig?a flavorful mixture of jalapeno jam, figs, feta cheese, spinach, and pine nuts.

Tumbling balls and clattering pins echo across the gleaming hardwood alleys at Glenfair Lanes, where bowlers of all ages strap on multicolored kicks for group play. Fluorescent bulbs shine neon shades onto alleys until 1:30 a.m. every Friday and Saturday night during neon bowling, where orbiting disco balls, flashing lasers, and excessive Blade Runner quotes add flair to game play. Tournament bowlers can clink chalices of beer and soda to celebrate strikes, and pintsize players can fuel up for youth bowling sessions with saucy slices of pizza.

Bowling is the great social equalizer—a common ground where grizzled undercover clowns, blue-collar English lords, LARPer librarians, big and tall lingerie models, hordes of hive-minded hipsters, and the other two social demographics that comprise America can unite in common cause and topple a gaggle of stuck-up, inanimate wooden pins. Brunswick has been a household name in this egalitarian pastime almost since the beginning, with a company history that dates back to the 19th century, providing classic American good times to all manner of patrons across the country. And with today's Groupon tying the room together, you'll get to play two games (up to a $10 value) in its hallowed halls wearing a pair of freshly disinfected bowling shoes (up to a $4.39 value).

Bartenders at the lobby bar dole out glasses of premium liquors, wines, and draft beer before and after shows.
