Bowling is a model for interpersonal relationships—the ball is your scream and the pins are other people’s opinions. Make a striking statement with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a bowling outing for up to six people at Country Club Lanes (up to a $101 total value). The package includes the following:
- 1.5 hours of bowling for up to six people (up to a $63 value)
- Rental shoes for each bowler (up to a $6 value)
- A $12 gift certificate for the Concourse Café
- A $20 debit card to use in the prize arcade<p>
A hub for wholesome family entertainment for more than 50 years, Country Club Lanes tends an interstate system of 48 waxed, fast lanes. Up to six can snuggle into alley-provided shoes before lining up to call out trick shots, such as the under-over or the pinhead, a quick endorsement for acupuncture. Between lobbing orbs, rollers can sate their eyes with 13 plasma-screen TVs, their tongues at the pizza- and nacho-plumped Concourse Café, and their entitlement glands on the basketball and skeeball courts of the Prize Arcade. The weekends light up with Glow bowling sessions, where a black light illuminates the freshly bleached gloves of after-hours forensics divisions.
Country Club Lanes
Among the 48 professional bowling lanes, two video arcades, two billiard rooms, and a futuristic laser-tag arena, Country Club Lanes’ activities run the gamut of fun, social diversions for families or friends. While maintaining its retro appeal with neon lights and colorful carpets, the alley updates its lanes with additions such as automatic bumpers and a gallery of plasma TVs. Open bowling hours run 24 hours a day with a kitchen open until 1 a.m., allowing guests to fix their late-night bowling cravings and finally escape Freddy Krueger by trapping his claws in a ball’s tiny holes.
