There's really only one strict rule on the lanes at Bryant-Lake Bowl: you have to wear socks. Otherwise, feel free to fudge the guidelines of the game and play a round of BLB Crazy Bowl, which encourages players to bowl with their non-dominant hand or try for a strike on their knees.
This playful spirit pops up all over at the Bryant-Lake Bowl facility, which also includes a theater and a restaurant. Improv comedians, musicians, and church groups all stop by to entertain, and the menu is equally eclectic: meat lovers should enjoy the bison and bacon meatloaf, while vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free folks enjoy salads, cheese plates, and main dishes prepped their way. Much of this food is sourced from local farms, just as many of the beers and wines hail from nearby sources instead of the out-of-touch brewers on the moon. Both the bowling alley and the theater have won accolades from Minneapolis CityPages.
