Like climbing the corporate ladder, bowling requires intense strategy, an appropriate pair of shoes, and no shame. Suit up for striking success with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two games of bowling for three people, three shoe rentals, and a pitcher of soda at Homestead Lanes in Cupertino (up to a $47.25 value).
Homestead Lanes buzzes with the pleasing sounds of rowdy rolls and glorious pin knocks, all across its 32 lanes of bowling bliss. Spares, strikes, and turkeys conjured by pacts with 7-10-splitting djinns bound down oiled alleys, complete with Brunswick Vector automatic scorers. A group of three bowlers can adorn feet in pairs of rented shoes (a $12.75 value) and set out for a two-game competition (up to a $28.50 value) rife with epic rolls, slick celebration moves, and treacherous sirens calling out from score-sinking gutters. When the rigors of pin throttling become too much, bowlers can replenish bodies with a pitcher of life-giving soda (a $6 value).
Homestead also stocks a variety of eating options for famished orb rollers, such as Laneside Snacks & Grill, wraps and salads from Tuscano's, and the scenic pizza cliffs of Noble Roman's. Outside the lane, competitive spirits can keep the action going in the arcade room, replete with pinball, air hockey, and digitized diversions.
Homestead Lanes offers its own deals at certain times of the week that may be better values than this deal; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.

Homestead Bowl and The X Bar
Homestead Bowl welcomes friends and families to hurl balls down 32 glistening lanes equipped with electronic scoring and gutter returns. A medley of drafts and bottled brews such as Pabst Blue Ribbon, Newcastle, and Guinness stock shelves in The X Bar, a full-service sports bar where bowlers can celebrate strikes with live music and Friday-night karaoke. The bar also tends to college nostalgia with beer pong and weekly billiards tournaments.
