Like joggers crossing a highway, bowlers should avoid nearby bumpers and resist the temptation to chase wayward balls into neighboring lanes. Roll carefully with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a bowling outing for four people at Kingston Bowl (up to a $55 total value). The outing includes the following:
- Two hours of bowling (up to a $40 value)
- Shoe rental for up to four (a $3.75/pair value)
Kingston Bowl entertains players with pub-style eats and hours of amusing indoor pin toppling. After buckling feet into rental shoes, parties of four blast through as many rounds of tenpins as they can cram into two hours of Father Time’s time, exercising flabby thumbs and plowing through pins in search of the fabled turkey. Sunday afternoon’s Bop and Bowl ($20/hour; shoes included) rolls out the bumper lanes and lightweight balls for kids, and the pub rolls out a full menu and free WiFi every day of the week. Because each lane is designed to accommodate up to eight bowlers, groups of four can invite four more friends to drop $3.75 on shoes and join in the fun; when the clock strikes 120 minutes, Grouponers can head over to the billiards parlor to buy into games of pool, darts, Wii sports, or toss-the-caber.
Though Kingstown Bowl offers various daily specials during specific times, this Groupon still represents the most flexible deal available.
Kingstown Bowl makes it easy to while away an afternoon or evening, encouraging visitors to stick around and shoot some pool, play some Wii Sports, or grab a drink between frames. Automatic scoring systems track the in-game action, and on Saturday nights, Rock-N-Bowl plunges the concourse into a nightclub atmosphere as a DJ spins requests and multicolored pins glow beneath concert-style lighting. The pub gives players a place to relax with bar food, free wireless Internet access, and the occasional U2 concert. The technicians at the pro shop offer advice on gear and perform services such as plugging and re-drilling finger holes.
