Built in 1947 as an eight-lane alley, Four Seasons has transformed into a 16-lane facility sporting modern bowling amenities, a pro shop, and restaurant. Slip on a pair of strike-slippers, enter a phony name into the new automatic scoring system, and send a hefty globe down one of the polished, bona fide wooden lanes. New setters collect and reset victimized pins quickly, allowing sphere slingers a chance to focus on their form, momentum, and poststrike celebratory moonwalk. Friends can heckle each other from the comfort of comfy, bright orange benches in the lane stations, and those who need to refuel between games can fill their bellies with steaks, ribs, and more at the Sports Look Restaurant and Sports Bar. Bowlers of all ages can breathe easy while belting an operatic rendition of Carmen between turns in the nonsmoking facility.
Four Seasons Bowling Center
In the more than 30 years he’s spent at the helm of Four Seasons Bowling Center, George Mareina has learned that there’s only one thing people like better than bowling: baby back ribs. The alley’s Sports Look Restaurant and Sports Bar has been sizzling up the saucy eats since its addition in 1999, and the full-service restaurant is just one of many things that Mareina has added since taking over in 1978. Automatic scoring and pinsetters help keep the fun rolling by eliminating downtime between frames, and the nonsmoking environment makes it an appropriate hangout for bowlers of all ages.
Die-hard bowlers in need of new gear can also stop by the pro shop to browse accessories such as balls, bags, shoes, and corks with which to plug those pesky bowling-ball holes.
