Bowling is like taking a road test: the only way to win is to knock over more obstacles than everyone else. Fuel up for victory with the help of today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of pizza and pub fare at the J.D. Legends restaurant in Franklin, plus 15% off bowling at the entertainment complex's alley.
J.D. Legends nourishes entertainment-starved families with a bubbling-over stew of bowling, bar fare, and brews, complemented by a large patio overlooking a beach-volleyball club. An array of appetizers introduces the restaurant's menu, with Kentucky's legendary fried green tomatoes ($6.39) reaching out for the first forkshake and taking the lead in popularity among hungry Shrek fanatics. Sandwiches of crunchy catfish ($7.75) and rib-eye steak ($8.99) pave the way for more elaborate entrees of Sizzlin' sirloin ($14.95), in which a hand-cut Angus steak rests beside onions and peppers trained in interpreting nightmares about knives.
After eating, head to the 24-lane bowling alley, which recently updated its scoring system to better capture impressive curveballs and light-speed strikes. The alley also treats visitors to glow-in-the-dark pin-bashing and project-in-the-dark video projectors. This Groupon is valid for 15% off bowling ($2–$3.50 per game per person during open play). Elsewhere in J.D. Legends, karaoke nights entertain those weary of hearing bands ruin their own songs, and trivia nights exercise the oft-dormant part of the brain that still remembers the 1932 roster of the New York Giants and which side won the Revolutionary War.
J.D. Legends nourishes entertainment-hungry families with a massive facility stocked with bowling, a restaurant offering Southern-style fare, a bar, and a night club. The 24-lane bowling alley features a new-and-improved scoring system to better capture lane-skipping curveballs and light-speed strikes. During open-play hours, shoes gently cradle the feet of their temporary masters as lanes brace themselves for the hurtling of bowling balls down their slender midsections. The lanes frequently host themed parties and events, including cosmic bowling every Friday and Saturday night.
The facility’s art-deco carpeting and citrus-colored decorations invigorate bowlers with game-enhancing visions of early 20th-century French heydays and afternoons spent lazing about under yellowed skies.
