Bowling is like taking a road test: the only way to win is to knock over more obstacles than everyone else. Cruise to victory with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get one hour of bowling and one shoe rental (up to a $22 value) at Fairlanes Bowling in the Halifax Shopping Centre on Mumford Road.
Fairlanes, which racks up both five-pin and candlepin bowling, hosts family-friendly games throughout the week. Lob a worthy weight towards a win on generously spaced alleys during general open play or Cosmic Bowling on Fridays and Saturdays. As hit music provides the backdrop for score settling during the glowy bowling pastime, white shirts, white teeth, and white candles beam under a ceiling of purple haze while egging on future perfect-game partisans. For larger gatherings, stage a birthday party or office gathering in Fairlanes' friendly confines, one of the only places where the sounds of crashing and collapsing are cause for a modest pat on the back or establishing performance-enhancing nicknames.
