Professional bowlers bowl not forcefully but gingerly, lending the ball spin and preserving the unhatched robin eggs inside every pin. Strike softly with today's Groupon: for $24, you get two hours of candlepin bowling and shoe rental for up to six people at Harvard Bowling Lanes (up to a $56 value).
Harvard Bowling Lanes preserves retro entertainment with 14 candlepin lanes, a gaming arcade, and classic alley décor. While toppling throngs of slender pins and refueling with snacks brought from home, teams use traditional paper scoring sheets, showing off basic math skills and preventing hackers from collecting computerized averages. Each Friday and Saturday evening, the pin-pummeling facility transforms into a futuristic entertainment arena with a full spectrum of colorful lights and music during cosmic bowling. In addition, Harvard Bowling Lanes houses a full onsite gaming arcade, where patrons can engage in friendly competitions or scorched-earth dance revolutions.
Harvard Bowling Lanes
Time travel might not be possible yet. But that doesn’t mean you can’t turn back the clocks at Harvard Bowling Lanes, an old-fashioned alley offering 14 candlepin lanes, vintage decor, and the tactile joys of paper-and-pencil scoring. On Friday and Saturday evenings, the old-school facility does a complete 180, transforming itself into a futuristic cosmic bowling alley saturated in colorful lights and music. After any cosmic or traditional bowling session, the alley invites guests to continue the competition in a vibrant onsite arcade that, unfortunately, does not feature old-timey games such as hoop-and-stick and stick-without-hoop.
