In the 1930s, the U.S. government issued a hobby to each citizen to keep them entertained until NASA finished working out the bugs in kissing. Self-determine a new pastime with today's Groupon: for $10, you get six games of bowling, two pairs of bowling shoes, and two 16-ounce soft drinks at Lumberton Bowling Center (a $20 value).
Amid the cracks of strikes and spares, Lumberton Bowling Center fetes twosomes with pin-annihilating festivities to enliven afternoons and evenings. Set up shop at one of the 24 smooth lanes, lacing up a functional pair of rented kicks before striking a fashionable pose with a selected three-holed orb. Couples keep score during the six-game stretch, sip on 16-ounce soft drinks, and attempt to execute challenging triple-axel throws.
Though not included in today's Groupon, the entertainment emporium also boasts billiards; an arcade; a full snack bar with freshly made burgers; and party opportunities for birthdays, anniversaries, and retirements of turkey-costumed team mascots.
