Like joggers crossing a highway, bowlers should avoid nearby bumpers and resist the temptation to leap unexpectedly into neighboring lanes. Celebrate carefully with today's Groupon: for $14, you get two games of bowling each with shoe rental for two people at Albany Bowl (up to a $28 value).

Since 1949, cheerful bowlers have toppled doomed pins at the end of Albany Bowl's 36 polished lanes. Fashionable footwear welcomes the extremities of bowling pairs, enabling the precise footwork needed to throw strikes and execute the mandated victory tap-dance immediately after. The lanes are open every day from 9 a.m. until 1 a.m. or 2 a.m., accommodating early birds and night owls. Waves of free WiFi emanate through the alley, complementing the wafting odors of food service and the war cries of tokens from the arcade.

Although Albany Bowl sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Albany Bowl

Against the sonic background of percussive strikes and jubilant chatter, bowlers stare down formidable pins on 1 of 36 sleek lanes. The aroma of pizza drifts over the lanes as bowlers topple pins or battle digital foes in the arcade room. Albany Bowl caters to youngsters with bowling-package birthday parties, helping out players under 9 with lane bumpers and surprising them with a visit from Mr. Pin, Albany Bowl's bowling-pin-shaped mascot, who tells the kids all about his favorite sport—basketball. Committed players can sign up for bowling leagues, and spectators can lounge in the sports bar, listening to the cacophonous soundtrack from a leather-seated stool.
