What You'll Get
Bowling, long the favored pastime of the royal court, fell out of favor in the 1890s with the accidental invention of the Slip 'n' Slide. Revive the beloved English pastime with today's Groupon: for $40, you get two hours of bowling in one lane for up to six people, including shoe rental (a $90 value) and a pitcher of domestic beer or soda (up to a $15 value), at Lucky Strike Lanes Belmar in Lakewood (up to a $105 total value).
Lucky Strike Lanes bolsters bowlers’ good times by showcasing a full bar stocked with refreshments, and illuminating its 16 lanes with vintage-inspired neon underlighting. This Groupon grants up to six alley guests two full hours of bowling-induced merriment at the Lakewood ball-rolling hall. After lacing up the complimentary Louboutin-designed foot coverings, spend 120 minutes perfecting your roll and bagging some turkeys. The bowlsperience includes a pitcher of domestic beer or soda from the hall's full bar, so when stage fright results in trembling limbs and fingers, bowlers can quell their shakes with a frosty-cold barley pop.
The festive bowling alley boasts a stylish midcentury lounge feel, complete with plush brown couches and warm autumn-hued walls. Unlike other competitive sports, such as dogsled racing and rap battles, bowling has a shallow learning curve and zero barriers to entry, with the exception of a reservation, which customers can call ahead to secure.

About Lucky Strike Lanes Belmar
Lucky Strike Lanes Belmar's 16 synthetic lanes gleam under a healthy collection of neon lights and high-definition television screens as leather sofas at each lane cradle guests who patiently wait their turn. When not bowling, bowlers can play foosball or billiards at the onsite sports bar or order from a full menu of pizzas, sandwiches, and other grilled items. The sports bar’s wooden accents add to the alley’s decor, which harks back to midcentury lounge styling without vintage drawbacks such as faulty ball returns or the ghosts of failed mayoral candidates floating down the alleyways.
