Bowling is like taking a road test: the only way to win is to knock over more obstacles than everyone else. Cruise to victory with today’s deal: for $5, you get two games of open bowling for one person, including shoe rental, at Pleasant Hill Lanes in Wilmington (an $11 value). Although today's Groupon grants games and shoes for one individual bowler, customers can purchase multiples and then distribute them amongst their closest competitive friends.
Pleasant Hill Lanes boasts 24 alleys primed for orb-lobbers of all ages. Open every day from 9 a.m. until midnight, the alley dispenses old-fashioned fun for a variety of social outings, from a casual afternoon with family to a late night date with a talkative local stranger. Automatic bumpers and scoring allow for an efficient and leisurely round of open bowling. Post-rolling, sore arms can retreat to the back section in search of snacks and refreshments from the fully stocked bar.
