Twin brothers and Parkville Lanes co-owners Edward and Brian Foreman have given sphere slingers a home for classic duckpin-style bowling since 1986 with 26 gleaming lanes. While the rules of duckpin bowling are similar to those of the traditional 10-pin game, bowlers play duckpin with softball-size bowling balls that lack treacherous finger traps, which they hurl at shorter, squatter pins with three throws per turn. Between turns, patrons can refresh at the snack bar, where steaming slices of pizza are chased with sips of brews and wine. Perfect for family-fun nights and dates with retired wrecking balls, Parkville Lanes can also accommodate larger parties for birthdays, wedding receptions, and bowling leagues.
Bowl at one of the upscaliest bowleries in the city and feel like Jay-Z or Mason Andrews. Today's Groupon gets you an hour of bowling plus shoe rental at Mustang Alley's Bar Bowling and Bistro for $15 (normally $31.50). Though you won't be able to use this Groupon on Friday or Saturday from 7 p.m. to close, you can still bowl when the alley has its weekday specials, such as half-price wine bottles on Tuesday and half-price burgers on Wednesday.
