Time travel may be theoretically impossible for those without ready access to black holes, but as a new Groupon subscriber you have the opportunity to go back in time to one of our most popular deals. More than 500 subscribers bought this Groupon the first time around, and now we're bringing it back just for you. For $2, you get two games of bowling plus shoe rental (an $11 total value) at one of two fine 10-pin establishments: Roxbury Lanes & Casino, across from Roxhill Park on Roxbury Street or Magic Lanes on 15th Avenue SW.
Besides strengthening arm muscles, thighs, glutes, calves, and Jeff Bridges impressions, 10-pin bowling at either Roxbury Lanes or Magic Lanes strengthens socio-familial bonds by giving friends and families a casual, nonviolent arena to challenge each other over chit-chat and fermented ales. After lacing up your rented shoes, grab a large, heavy orb and experience a double dose of ballesthenics, either solo or surrounded by bodyguards (though they'll have to bring their own Groupons). Roxbury Lanes feature family-friendly Sundays, with more-alcohol-fueled bowling specials during the week, and Magic Lanes devotes 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays to family-friendliness. Your two games will allow you to get into the groove and away from the gutters, and if your repetitive pin crushing stimulates your food-crushing desires, both bowling alleys have restaurants (Asian and American in Roxbury Lanes and just plain American in Magic Lanes), though cuisine is not included in the cost of the Groupon.
There are few things in life as satisfying as knocking perfectly arranged objects down, be they a meticulous configuration of wooden pins or a row of skyscraper dominos. Today's Groupon to bowl at Roxbury Lanes & Casino or Magic Lanes lets you tap into the heedless joy of a kindergartner knocking over building blocks—only unlike in kindergarten, you're never forced to pick up your mess by a sulky, disgruntled giant.
Five Cityseachers give Roxbury Lanes & Casino an average of four stars:

Roxbury Lanes & Casino
The clatter of tumbling pins precipitate cheers over strikes and high scores in Roxbury Lanes & Casino’s bowling arena, and silent staring contests precede shouts of victory and wails of defeat in the venue’s daily poker tournaments. The tables feature many stripes of the classic card game, including Texas hold'em, four card, and pai gow, as well as double-deck blackjack. To refuel for further sporting, visitors retire to the built-in sports bar, where they chow down on new york strip steaks, custom burgers, and a full selection of breakfast eats in the comforting glow of flat-screen televisions and the bartender’s neon-rimmed glasses.
