The three holes on a bowling ball represent the three phases of bowling: wind-up, release, and genuflection. Send a ball properly on its way with today's Groupon: for $11, you get four games of bowling (two per person, if bowling with a friend), two shoe rentals, and one pitcher of soda at Delaware Lanes on Sunbury Road (a $24 value).
Family-owned-and-operated for 50 years, Delaware Lanes offers pin fellers automatic scoring, optional bumper bowling, and an array of on-site amenities. Take your place at the head of one of the alley’s synthetic lanes and bear down on a flock of ill-intentioned pins as an identically shod friend or business partner shouts encouraging verses of poetry.
Automatic scoring frees bowlers from algebraic responsibilities and frees unused scoring pencils to pursue their calling as damming material for comically tiny beavers. Sphere wielders can refresh with a sip of soda, douse a triumphant lane mate with an entire pitcher, or—the second and fourth Friday of each month from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m.—serenade their bowling balls to the DJed tunes of Rock and Bowl.
Although not included in today's deal, a sizable snack menu and a cocktail lounge help fuel prolonged pin hunts, and foosball and an Internet jukebox entertain weary lane warriors and the members of their entourages.
Hand-dipped milk shakes and rows of classic, minimalist bowling alleys turn back the clock at Delaware Lanes. As guests focus on toppling pins and dodging gutters, automatic scoring tracks their performance. In between frames, bowlers can kick back at a lounge with cushy booths and nautical decor, tippling drinks from a full-service bar.
