Any old primate can hurl heavy objects at lighter ones and delight in the resulting chaos—what separates humankind is our burning desire to keep score. Assert your humanity with today’s Groupon: $5 for 2 games of bowling at your choice of two Pittsburgh-area Brunswick Zone locations in Pittsburgh and Belle Vernon, up to a $12 value (including tax). One shoe rental is included, so you can continue to put off your plan to buy some totally sweet bowling shoes, for now at least.
There are a few sounds that inherently bring joy to the ears and heart: the opening of a bag of nacho chips, the adoring bark of a sea lion, and the rumble of a bowling ball down a high-gloss lane, culminating in an explosion of pins. Treat yourself, your friends, or your kids to a night of joyous sounds and unmitigated fun at Brunswick. All Brunswick Zone locations offer a fantastic family environment that’s also great for catching up with old buddies or treating your sweetheart to a fun date. This Groupon gets you two games of rambunctious fun, as well as free rental of stylish footwear—the real draw at a bowling center. You can purchase multiple Groupons to bring friends along, and if you redeem three in one visit, you can bring an additional three friends for two hours of free bowling and shoe rental, effectively doubling the power of your Groupon.
All locations offer friendly, accommodating staff members who ease the process of snapping up extra lanes for large groups. Brunswick Zones also host cosmic bowling (times and availability vary by location). With dance lights, grooveable music, and glow-in-the-dark lanes, pins and balls, it’s sort of like the late work of surrealist poet André Breton set to a bombastic laser light show.
Aside from the lanes, Brunswick sites offer up amenities like arcade games, party rooms, bumper bowling, snacks, a lounge, and the Pro Shop, where you can get bowling gear that will make all the other morning-drive DJs jealous (amenities vary by location).
That rumble you hear is the roar of desire from your 15-pound soul and pin-hating heart. Heed that call, if for no other reason than to do it for the shoes.
