Before the advent of bowling pins, bowling balls had to be rolled toward 10 upright sticks of butter, which made each ball difficult to hold and dangerously high in cholesterol. Take pride in healthier pin consistency with today's Groupon: for $7, you get two bowling games for two players from the Northern Kentucky Bowling Association (up to a $15 value), valid at Southern Lanes Sports Center in Alexandria, La Ru Lanes in Highland Heights, Walt's Center Lanes in Newport, Super Bowl Bellewood in Newport, and Super Bowl Erlanger in Erlanger.
The Northern Kentucky Bowling Association partners with various bowling lanes in the Cincinnati area, several of which offer additional activities such as billiards, arcade games, and cornhole. Bowlers can lob their selected urethane orb down a sleek wooden boulevard for two rigorous games, doing their best to beat a friend, relative, or imaginary godparent. Bowling shoe rentals are not included in this Groupon, but rental is $1.50–$2.50 per person, depending on location.
The bowling alleys offer their own deals at certain times of the week that may be better values than this deal; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
