Bowling shoes aren’t just fashionable—they provide the added 2 inches of height needed to load your ball into a regulation-size trebuchet. Lace up and reach for a three-holed pin-puncher with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get two games, shoe rental, and one large pizza (a $19 value) at Eagle Lanes in Pleasanton.
With its multitudinous lanes and inviting amenities, Eagle Lanes delights bowling ballers of every age. Lace up a pair of rented kicks and saunter out onto the floor for two games of pin-splitting bliss, lighting up the lane with strikes, spares, and the occasional road flare. The Steltronics electronic scoring system keeps track of players’ pin hits and misses, while slices from a large pizza keep morale high and hunger pangs low. Between frames, patrons can visit the bountiful snack bar or blow off steam with Eagle Lane's plethora of arcade games and pool tables. On Saturday nights, pin topplers can experience a more black-lit plane of existence with cosmic bowling, which imbues games with neon lights, music, and gravity.
