What You'll Get
In the 1930s, the U.S. government issued a hobby to each citizen to keep them entertained until NASA finished working out the bugs in kissing. Try out a new pastime with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two hours of bowling, shoe rental, and a round of miniature golf for up to five people plus a free pitcher of soda at Hi-Way Lanes in Franklin (up to a $55 value, depending on the time of play).
Turkey throwers and club wielders of all ages and abilities flock to Hi-Way Lanes, a recreational oasis equipped with 28 glossy alleys and an 18-hole miniature-golf course. After outfitting flippers in polychromatic rental shoes and crafting innuendo-laced score-monitor aliases, fearless fivesomes can partake in two hours of orb-lobbing thumbrobics while nursing a pitcher of soda. Authenticate banknotes and high-score boasts in the phosphorescent wonderland of cosmic bowling on Fridays and Saturdays at 10 p.m., where disco lights, fog machines, and ebullient music encourage Travolta-esque arm swings and groove-infused lane approaches. Pre- or post-pin-smashing, take to the verdant mini-golf course to test putt-putt pluck against numerous curves and obstacles, including a small-scale sphinx on the fifth hole that speaks in riddles and ridicules improper swinging technique.
