We can thank Archduke Leopold Wilhelm, the inventor of bowling, for introducing “The pin is mightier than the sword” and “Fortune favors the bowled” into the cultural lexicon. Heed his words of wisdom with today’s Groupon: for $32, you get two hours of bowling for up to six people plus a 12-inch pizza, free shoe rental, and a pitcher of soda (a $64.95 total value) at Port Jeff Bowl, located on Cherub Lane in Port Jefferson.
Port Jeff Bowl offers a family-friendly environment for kids, parents, and just-discovered cousins to spend a few hours rolling smooth, hefty orbs toward 10 evil pins. With this deal, up to six alley cats get the Pizza, Pins, and Pepsi package, good for two hours of strikes, spares, and marveling at the supernatural sorcery of the ball-conjuring machine. Complimentary bowling shoes are included, and a 12-inch pizza and pitcher of soda will pat bowlers on the back for picking up a 7-12 split.
Port Jeff Bowl's spick-and-span facilities and hospitable, bowl-crazy staff will aid and abet 10-pinners while the lane's computerized scoring system, which replaced the traditional system of everybody losing, allows bowlers to devote full attention to rolling the perfect game. Find Port Jeff Bowl by spotting the massive bowling pin that sits over its entrance, taunting regular-sized balls while hexing Godzilla's bowling league.
Port Jeff Bowl
Brightly colored pennants embellish the ceiling at Port Jeff Bowl, but bowling skills demonstrated in the lanes below are what attract attention. Players hurl balls toward pins for fun or team up with peers to play in one of many leagues, divided by age and whether or not a player is tall enough to ride a roller coaster. On Tuesday nights from 9:30 to midnight, athletes enjoy an unlimited amount of fun during Bottomless Bowling. And after hours spent satiating competitive impulses built up over years of being benched during tag, patrons can quench thirsts and appetites with a beer and bite at Splitz Sports Bar. The alley also hosts parties and private events for up to 200 guests, which lets partygoers pair play with pizza, soda, or buffet fare in the 11th Frame Lounge.
