Bowling shoes aren’t just fashionable—they provide the added two inches of height needed to load your ball into regulation-size trebuchet. Lace up and reach for a three-holed pin-puncher with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get three games of bowling and shoe rental at Bowl Long Island in Patchogue (up to a $19 value).
Since 1957, this friendly, family-oriented fun center has played host to wholly wholesome fun. Today, the newly renovated alley boasts top-notch lanes with mounted flat-screen LCD monitors, a spruced-up snack and slurp bar, fresh coats of colorful paint, a full-service pro shop, and more. Before you saunter up to throw your first ball, but after you secure your lucky ostrich neatly between your toes, guide your footsies into a pair of stylish bowling shoes ($4 rental value). In between frames, refuel your energy tank with a frothy brew from the bar or let one of the alley's sumptuous seats sing a lullaby from Rocky to your resting limbs.
After three games of clever gutter dodging, you'll have cultivated the coordination to dance atop a giant waffle without wobbling over a nook or cranny. Purchase up to three Groupons for yourself to maintain your dexterity, or even more as gifts to start preparing your whole group of friends for imminent street wars against sentient bowling pins. Bowl Long Island's lanes are open for public playing daily, but lane reservations are required, so make sure to call ahead to schedule your visit.
