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 $5, you get three games of bowling and one pair of rental shoes at Lakeside Lanes, located in Mundelein (up to an $11.20 value).
Lakeside Lanes accommodates amateur and expert sphere-hurlers alike with a chic lounge and dozens of bowling lanes, including 12 bumper lanes for kids. Patrons can battle their chums for pin-toppling dominance without fretting over broken pencils, inkless pens, and spontaneously combusting crayons as each lane is equipped to automatically keep score. On Friday and Saturday nights beginning at 10:30 p.m., bowling buffs can futurize their gutter-skirting excursions with cosmic bowling, when the alley ensconces itself in a club-like atmosphere featuring toe-tapping tunes and flashing colored lights. Though bowling and shoes are the only things covered by this Groupon, Lakeside also offers billiards tables, a game room, and the Dockside Diner to provide lane warriors with a break from their pin hunting.
Lakeside Lanes runs seasonal daily specials, so plan ahead to make the most of your Groupon, which is good anytime.
League play, friendly outings, family birthdays—all happily coexist on Lakeside Lanes’ 32 lanes. Of these, 12 are equipped with bumpers for kids or adults who prefer to think of bowling as a giant game of billiards. After league play ends on Friday and Saturday nights, the music grows louder and black light bathes the lanes for cosmic bowling.
The attached restaurant, the Dockside Diner, isn’t particularly near any docks, but the “diner” part is more than accurate. A pair of sock-hoppers dance on the teal and purple striped walls, and chrome railings zip around a checker-tiled room where guests munch wings, burgers, and pizza. An arcade and game room adds more entertainment options with pool tables, darts, and video games.
