Bowling shoes aren’t just fashionable—they provide the added two inches of height needed to load your ball into the regulation-size trebuchet. Lace up and reach for a three-holed pin-puncher with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get three games of bowling plus shoe rental and a small drink (up to a $14.26 value) at one of Community Bowling Centers’ 13 locations.
Community Bowling Centers outfit greater Detroit with outposts of pin-crushing catharsis and slippery-lane bonding. Armed with nothing more than arms stuck in three-holed balls, the bowling center’s 13 locations raised more than $1 million for various charities in the past year, and today’s deal lets you bask in their beneficent bowling glow. With three bowling games at your disposal, you can topple deserving pins against a longtime guttered nemesis in a best-out-of-three match. Or go in for a triple-header against your grandparents, kids, corrupt politicians, or anyone else you should probably let win. Your Groupon covers the requisite motley bowling shoes, and the included small soft drink will give you the automatic 20/20 vision that comes from a precisely measured caffeine dose.
Community Bowling Centers are friendly venues for obtaining gutter-lined bowling learners’ permits before moving onto strike licenses that let you buy temporary tattoos and nonalcoholic beer. A night out at your local outpost ensures a thrilling chance for strikes and spares, and provides a great place to try out your new camouflage wood-paneled bowling ball.
Community Bowling Centers
The independently owned Community Bowling Centers accommodate bowlers of all ages and abilities, featuring bumper-equipped lanes and lightweight balls designed for the hands of pintsize players. At 7 smoke-free locations throughout the region, guests enjoy open hours in addition to league opportunities and special events. The onsite bar serves ice-cold cups of soda or beer, which guests may raise in toasts to friendship and man's ability to hydrate himself. On select evenings, the alley lights turn down and the ethereal illumination of Glow N Bowl takes over with laser-light shows and fog machines. As balls roll down phosphorescent lanes, a sound track of thumping beats and alien distress calls saturates the space.
