Rolling a 14-pound ball at a grocery-store display can make a mess, which is why managers no longer arrange pickle jars in sets of 10 at the end of aisles. Send a ball down an appropriate lane with today's Groupon: for $23, you get two games of bowling and shoe rental for up to four people plus a 12-inch, one-topping pizza and a pitcher of soda at Doyle's Bowling & Lounge in Crystal (up to a $53.50 value).
As enthusiastic ball throwers add to a soundtrack of toppling pins, Doyle's Bowling & Lounge quiets less-impressive stomach grumbles with its in-house café. Before settling in to a cozy blue chair for two games with three family members or friends, pick up a pair of shoes from the desk and celebrate your group's matching footwear with a quick song-and-soft-shoe routine. When efforts to zero in on strikes work up an appetite, the friendly staff at the Down in the Alley Cafe will happily supply some sustenance, adorning a 12-inch pie with a topping of your choice and pouring a pitcher of soda to whet parched whistles. Add luminescent or aural intrigue to games by coordinating your trip with Doyle's live music or your own live rendition of The Wizard of Oz.
Though Doyle's Bowling & Lounge offers daily specials, this Groupon is the best and most flexible deal available.
