Bowling shoes aren’t just fashionable—they provide the added two 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 $6, you get three games of bowling, including shoe rental, at Eastland Bowl on McClelland Avenue (an $11.75 value). Mitigate stress by smashing through pin formations at Eastland, which features 20 lanes, LCD scoring equipment, 80 in. video screens, and glow-in-the-dark bowling sessions several nights a week. Toast to your triumphs at the on-site bar and lounge, or gear up for perilous bowling campaigns at the pro shop. Prospective bowlers can check lane availability by telechatting with the amicable staff ahead of time.
East Land Bowling
Three nights a week, black lights transform East Land Bowling into a surreal landscape, where smiles and white T-shirts glow. The festive lighting is part of glow bowling, which runs Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. The rest of the week, glow-free bowlers roll strikes on the alley's 20 lanes and peruse the professional-quality bowling gear in the onsite shop.
