The Deal

  • $44 for entry for one into a six-week coed bowling league ($88 value)

Held on Sundays from October 20 through November 24, the socially-focused, coed bowling league pits teams up to 10 against each other during six weeks of 90-minute bowling sessions at Lucky Strike. The league fee includes shoe rental and all bowling fees.

Better Off Bowling

As the icy grip of winter tightened its grip around Boston, a group of buddies mourned the impending cold that, history had shown, meant they wouldn't see each other as often until the warmer months. To get around the problem, they decided to find a way to stay warm without sacrificing the fun of social activities. The solution: the cozy indoor setting and endless high-fives of bowling. Thus, in the winter of 2006, Better Off Bowling was born.

Originally a way for friends to keep in touch, the idea caught on and became a league-sized endeavor, spreading to new cities and close-knit crews around the country. Each season consists of six weekly games, during which teams compete in 90-minute matches to combine the four highest scores in a single game. Many participating alleys offer drink specials during the sessions, and Better Off Bowling hosts post-match hangouts with board games for teams to interact with each other and giddily fly kites over the ball returns' air vents.
