Besides strengthening arm muscles, thighs, glutes, calves, and Jeff Bridges impressions, bowling is also recreational. Find strength in striking with today's Groupon: for $19, you get an hour of lane rental, pizza, and two shoe rentals at Ford Lanes in Dearborn Heights or Bel-Mark Lanes in Ann Arbor (up to a $42 total value). This Groupon is valid during open bowling hours (see open bowling times for Ford Lanes here and Bel-Mark Lanes here.
Ford Lanes and Bel-Mark Lanes invite bowling enthusiasts to pummel pins in a family-friendly atmosphere. Two shoe rentals keep bowlers from scuffing the emotionally frail floors, and more pairs can be rented to accommodate larger parties or harmonizing barbers. After an hour on the lanes, refuel at the Ford Lanes café or Bel-Mark café with a cheesy pizza. Ford patrons can also relax in the newly remodeled lounge or polish billiards cues while Bel-Mark attendees watch live streams of said billiards games via the alley's free WiFi.
Wood-paneled walls and traditional pub décor surround diners and dart tossers in the dining areas of Bel-Mark Lanes. The classic facilities host an array of gleaming, professional lanes that boast automatic scoring and are perfect for a night of cosmic bowling or chucking an ex-girlfriend’s snow-globe collection. The alley maintains open hours for groups and practicing individuals, and they also offer leagues for adults, seniors, and children. Each weekend, the pin-crushing arenas host karaoke contests, welcoming the musical talent of community members.
