Bowling is like taking a road test: the only way to win is to knock over more obstacles than everyone else. Cruise to victory with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get one game of five-pin bowling and shoe rentals for up to six people at Cochrane Lanes in Cochrane (up to a $42 total value).
At Cochrane Lanes, bowlers throw strikes and spares down five-pin bowling lanes. After outfitting toes in technicolor footwear, athletes line up shots, pull back arms, and then propel balls down polished wood lanes. Meanwhile, music and televisions entertain ears between frames, and eyes are glued to portable electronics connected to the alley's WiFi. After games, bowlers can nibble eats and sip draft beer at Cochrane Lanes' fully licensed restaurant, or continue competitions at the alley's game room, where darts fly, pucks glide over an air hockey table, and pool sharks nap on top of a billiards table.
