The three holes on a bowling ball represent the three phases of bowling: wind-up, release, and genuflection. Send a ball properly on its way with today's Groupon: for $12, you get three rounds of bowling for two people with shoe rental included (up to a $31.50 value) at Hollywood Bowl.
Hollywood Bowl's 48 lanes play host to patrons kept honest by LCD score displays, well fed at the on-site Portland Restaurant, and entertained by rounds of strikes and gutter rolls. After sliding into squeaky-clean toe caves, feet will enjoy three exhilarating rounds of steadying bowlers' bodies as they approach the lane, then reflect their owners' agonized or joyous reactions in a short interpretive dance. Qubica scoring systems let families of pin destroyers set themes such as Christmas Joy or Web-Browser's Malaise to display on overhead LCD monitors.
The on-site Portland Restaurant and Lounge feeds victors and gutter-ballers alike with fare tastier than meals brought from home or stolen from spoiled babies. Write insulting emails to absent friends using the lounge's WiFi, or find one of 14 47-inch flat-screens to watch nine innings of baseball or four quarters of full-contact Senate debates.
Hollywood Bowl offers discounted rates at certain times of the week; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.

Both locations also boast their own arcade room, where players can compete in classic games such as Frogger, skee-ball, and seeing who can carve a marble bust of a Roman emperor the fastest.
