Bowling is an easy way to level the playing field with a date, family member, or technologically superior alien who lacks opposable thumbs. Give intergalactic peace a chance with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get two games and one shoe rental at Plaza Lanes in Plymouth (up to a $10 value).
A family-friendly bowling emporium, Plaza Lanes welcomes alley cats of all ages and skill levels to enjoy cathartic rounds of pin-crushing seven days a week. For two exhilarating games, subtle-soled rollers take to the lanes in a cacophonous display of sporting prowess, showing off spares, strikes, and the occasional victory waltz. Sentient scoreboards keep points automatically tallied, helping to prevent unfortunate pencil mustache mishaps. Customers can also lace up during weekend glow bowling, when the alley transforms into a frenetic glow-in-the-dark oasis.
Though not included in this Groupon, sore thumbs can seek refuge in the game room, where they’re less likely to stick out as virtual reality engages the other eight digits. The Spare Time Grille refuels ravenous bowlers, and the bar dispenses liquid courage to those working up the nerve to lower the bumpers. Open-bowling hours vary daily; call ahead for availability.
