We can thank Archduke Leopold Wilhelm, the inventor of bowling, for introducing “The pin is mightier than the sword” and “Fortune favors the bowled” into the cultural lexicon. Heed his words of wisdom with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get two hours of glow bowling at Narrows Plaza Bowl in University Place, a $70 value. Each person gets $1 toward a food-court purchase while bowling, giving this Groupon up to a $75 total value. A party of up to five people can enjoy 120 minutes on one lane with shoes and balls included. Today's Groupon can also be used for two hours of standard bowling for pin purists who crave rousing bowler's banter without the added lights and sounds of glow bowling.
Narrows Plaza provides bowling fans with 40 synthetic lanes and a brand-new computerized scoring network that beams X's and /'s to 40-inch LCD screens. Bowling provides a middle ground for people of all ages and temperaments to bond over the breathless frustration of a 7-10 nightmare or the celebratory whooping of a successful turkey. All lanes come with the option to be bumperized so bowlers of any experience level can competently compete while balancing the fickle forces of geometry and physics.
Glow bowling is scheduled various times between during the week, bringing the thrill of a light show and rocking music to an otherwise tranquil sport. The spectacle of luminescent lights transforms mere ball-rolling into an intergalactic event of high-adrenaline bowling. For those who never strike or spare without a sated belly, the alley holds a re-energizing food court full of pizzas, libations, and signature pancakes.
