What You'll Get
Spherical sports have distinct advantages over rectangular sports, such as Rubik's cubing and throwing bricks into windows. Roll your way to feasting and fun with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $24 worth of bowling and bocce or Sunday brunch at Pinstripes in Northbrook or South Barrington.
Pinstripes’ 50,000-square-foot space yields sanctuary to all sorts of merrymaking, sheltering 18 bowling lanes, indoor and outdoor bocce courts, and a kitchen firing hearty Italian cuisine. Demonstrate disdain for careful configurations of pins with bowling ($5–$7/person/game), or celebrate retirement by playing bocce ($8–$10/person/game) with papier-mâché balls made out of unneeded timesheets. Youngsters 12 and younger can develop their bowling arm and Fred Flintstone dances for $3. On Friday and Saturday nights, live blues and jazz bands perfume the air with soulful tunes.
Alternatively, wind down the weekend with Sunday brunch ($24/adult; $14/child 6–12), served buffet-style from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and accompanied by an effervescent mimosa. Omelets and waffles waft steamy aromas into nostrils, and fresh cuts of prime rib tantalize hearty appetites and inner werewolves. A cadre of desserts and a chocolate fountain chase off any sneak attacks by dentists.
