Bowling shoes aren’t just fashionable—they provide the added 2 inches of height needed to load your ball into a regulation-size trebuchet. Lace up and reach for a three-holed pin-puncher with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two games of bowling for two people (four games total), two pairs of rental shoes, and a pitcher of soda (up to a $23.50 value) at Northfield Lanes.
Northfield Lanes boasts 16 sphere-slinging synthetic runways and furnishes families with a friendly atmosphere within its cozy, smoke-free confines. Automatic scoring machines free fingers from burdensome pencils as bowlers conduct a thunderous symphony with pin crashes and the oohs and aahs of onlookers. Sultans of strikes can vie for a place on Northfield Lanes’ high-score list, while fledgling tossers fine-tune their rusty strokes between gutter-guarding bumper lanes. A pitcher of soda provides swills after every spare or washes away the sour taste of 7/10 splits. Meanwhile, age-appropriate bowlers can roll up to the full-service bar to loosen their limbs without opting for a therapeutic WD-40 massage.
Bowlers of all ages and experience levels roll bowling balls down 16 synthetic runways at Northfield Lanes, doing their best to knock down all 10 pins. Automatic scoring machines make it easy to keep track of the results, and bumpers provide an added advantage, if desired. In between games, adults can head to The Tap, a full-service bar with a variety of draft beers.
