Bowling is a model for interpersonal relationships—the ball is your scream and the pins are other people's opinions. Make a striking statement with this Groupon.
- $44 for entry for one into a six-week coed bowling league (an $88 value)
The bowling league meets each Sunday from October 6 until November 10. Players can sign up with a team or join as a "free agent." Bowling lasts for about 90 minutes, and then everyone heads to a bar to socialize. The league fee includes shoe rental and all bowling fees.
Better Off Bowling Houston
For six weeks, groups of 20- and 30-somethings meet to laugh, socialize, and share drinks with old and new friends. Oh, yeah—they also hurl heavy balls toward pins with hopes of winning the game, or something like that. Though Better Off Bowling Houston brings people together for regular bowling games, it doesn't make competition the star of the show. The co-ed league simply wants people to have fun, make new connections, and get out of their homes during winter months. Experts and complete newbies are both welcome, since teams—which can consist of up to 10 people—only count the scores of their top four bowlers. In fact, much of the event doesn't even take place in a bowling alley. After a couple of games, the festivities move to a predetermined bar where all the various teams mix and mingle.
