Like a baseball game, a game of bowling has no time limits, affords players ample time to rest, and never ends with the scoreboard reading more than 300. Roll into home with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two games of bowling (up to a $9.50 value each) and two pairs of rental shoes (up to an $4 value each) at Narrows Plaza Bowl in University Place (up to a $27 total value).
Bowlers at Narrows Plaza Bowl sling spheres down 40 synthetic lanes, each trimmed with automatic scoring and optional bumpers. After duos slip into their respective rental kicks and lace up their throwing arms, players draw orbital weapons and set to work mowing down pins in back-to-back bouts. Players leave point tallying to a computerized network that festoons 40-inch LCD screens with scores converted into the Xs and /s commonly taught in American math classrooms. Lanes can also be bumperized, enabling bowlers of any experience level to competently compete while balancing the fickle forces of geometry and physics. Between rounds, bowlers can slide over to the re-energizing food court full of pizza and libations (not included in today's deal).
Though today's deal is not valid for glow bowling on Friday or Saturday after 8 p.m., bowlers wishing to jazz up their game with luminescent lights can attend glow bowling on Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. and Thursday after 9:30 p.m.
Narrows Plaza Bowls' prices vary throughout the week.
