Emerald Bowl - Alief: $20 for $45 Worth of Lanes and Shoes at Emerald Bowl

Bowling is one of the few sports where drinking is acceptable and sweaty locker rooms are nonexistent. With today's Groupon, you get $45 worth of lanes and shoe rentals at Emerald Bowl for $20. The value can also be applied to birthday or corporate parties, but not toward the bowling emporium's vast stockpile of actual emeralds.

Emerald Bowl boasts a clean facility for rolling 15-pounders and pounding 15 fruit roll-ups atop impeccably groomed floors. Though you can only use your Groupon toward shoe and lane rentals, Emerald Bowl also offers a full bar and snack bar to satisfy your mid-frame cravings. Lace up with shoe rental ($3.23 for adults, $2.31 for kids) before embarking on the daunting task of ball selection. Bargain gamers will appreciate Emerald Bowl's matinee prices: kids' games are $3.46, adults $3.93, and seniors $3.46 every day before 6 p.m. You can also opt to rent a lane for two hours for $36.95, or one hour for $23.09. Prices go up at night and on weekends, when bowling balls are more likely to disobey the laws of gravity and crash through the ceiling. View a complete list of prices here.

Bowling works neglected muscles you never knew you had. Since you're only obligated to play when it's your time, you won't have to worry about awkward sweating or catching your breath. Unlike soccer games and couple runs, you won't exert yourself to the point of limiting conversation, so bowling can help you stay athletically social. Get this Groupon for your niece's birthday party or bowl a few rounds with someone who's crushing on you without the suggestion of romance. If you've got enough of an ensemble to declare it a four-lane party, call ahead to reserve the spots.

Emerald Bowl

At Emerald Bowl, you could just show up and rent one of the 40 gleaming lanes for an evening of fun. But if you want to make sure you win, you could take a private lesson with 15-time PBA title holder John Handegard. During each lesson, he helps fledgling bowlers learn to increase their chances of scoring strikes without charging down the lane and stealing all the pins. Lessons also help those who want to join one of Emerald Bowl's leagues for regular match-ups and bouts of socialization afterward in the cocktail lounge and snack bar.
