If life is just a bowl of cherries, then bowling is a life of launching 12-pound cherry-flavored gumballs. Experience life's sweetest pastime with today's Groupon: for $6, you get two games of bowling, shoe rental for one person, and one 16-ounce soda at Gate City Lanes, up to a $13.77 combined value. This Groupon is not valid after 10 p.m. on Fridays or Saturdays.
With 52 freshly oiled lanes, Gate City Lanes is a pin-seeker's haven that has garnered the support of locals, finishing in the top two for the News & Record's Go Triad magazine's 2009 Readers' Choice Award for Best Bowling Alley. Bowlers enjoy an abundance of classic alley accompaniments—arcade games, pool tables, and a snack bar with hot dogs, burgers, sandwiches, drinks, and snacks to refuel between each of the three dramatic rolls of the epic 10th frame. Those who yearn to step into the shoes of bowling heroes past are in luck—it's actually required by the alley, and shoe rental ($3.95) is covered with your Groupon. The 16-ounce soda ($1.92) also included with this Groupon will meet most bowling-related hydration demands, whether you treat bowling as sport or leisure.
