A family outing fosters lifelong memories while giving houses the chance to molt in private. Leave your domicile to its own devices with today's Groupon: for $35, you get two hours of bowling (up to a $52 value) and shoe rentals (a $3 value/pair) for up to four people plus a large pizza (an $11 value) and a pitcher of soda (a $5 value) at Cape Ann Lanes in Gloucester (an $80 total value).
Cape Ann Lanes entices pin topplers into its outer-space-theme environs with 20 sleek lanes and automatic scoring seven days a week. For two action-packed hours, don rental shoes to solo terrorize 10 pins, or bring along up to three friends, family members, or younger siblings dressed as bowling balls as backup. A cheesy pizza melts away competition-induced hunger, and a pitcher of icy soda keeps throats from asking uncomfortable personal questions of fellow lane occupants.
Cape Ann Lanes ensconces guests in a lively atmosphere lavished in a backdrop of glowing planets, Neil Armstrong’s baby teeth, and neon rocket ships. An arsenal of classic games housed in the arcade area, such as Pac-Man and skee-ball, spit out tickets redeemable for prizes, and a snack bar serves imported and domestic brews and wine, as well as nonalcoholic edibles.
