Bowling is like taking a road test: the only way to win is to knock over more obstacles than everyone else. Cruise to victory with today's Groupon to Astoria Bowl in Queens. Choose between two options:
• For $9, you get two games of bowling and one shoe rental (up to an $18 value).
• For $30, you get four games of bowling, two shoe rentals, one platter of finger food for two, and one pitcher of beer or soda (up to a $67 total value).
Astoria Bowl houses 28 maple-finished synthetic lanes on which 280 pins sleep, blissfully unaware of their imminent doom. Each tenpin-annihilating game (up to a $7 value each) during open-bowling hours begins when bowlers lace up a pair of snappy two-tones (a $4 value/pair), and then speeds toward its gutter-gripping conclusion as touch-screen scoring-monitors outwit curved calculations. On Friday and Saturday evenings (10 p.m.–3 a.m.), cosmic bowl lights things up when the frat boy of the noble gases––neon––preps for the party along with an illuminating laser-light show. A snack platter of chicken fingers, wings, gooey mozzarella sticks, crisp fries, and onion rings (a $20 value) pairs with a thirst-quenching pitcher of fountain soda or draft beer (up to an $11 value), providing the perfect between-frames bite for a peckish pair.
The sports lounge's gleaming gold-toned bar is the designated site for refueling and for the exchange of the international gesture of respect, the head nod, with worthy adversaries and unexpectedly intelligent arcade games. Free parking is available in Astoria Bowl’s lot.
Astoria Bowl offers its own deals at certain times of the week that may be better values than this deal. Plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
Within its newly modernized facility, Astoria Bowl entreats visitors to spend days and nights spinning bowling balls down 28 synthetic maple-finished lanes and helping to domesticate the escaped penguins posing as pins. Black lights and lasers illuminate the lanes during cosmic bowling, and new state-of-the-art scoring systems save bowlers the hassle of tabulating scores. The kitchen serves up burgers, pizza, and pub specialties that can be enjoyed while sipping refreshing libations at the sports lounge which features a full service bar or alongside each family friendly lane.
