Put some music on! It was Friday night and you could hear crickets in the place!

What You'll Get


Like joggers crossing a highway, bowlers should avoid nearby bumpers and resist the temptation to chase wayward balls into neighboring lanes. Roll carefully with today’s Groupon to South Boston Candlepin. Choose between the following options:

  • For $30, you get a candlepin bowling night for six (up to an $81 value), which includes:
  • Three games of bowling for six people (up to a $4/person per game value)
  • Shoe rental for six people (a $1.50 value each)
  • For $149, you get a three-hour bowling party with unlimited games and shoe rental for up to 20 people (a $300 value).

South Boston Candlepin challenges bowlers to take aim at pintsize pins during rounds of a New England–born variation on traditional lane-based warfare. The alley’s hardwood lanes bear balls that—unlike balls used for 10-pin competitions—weigh a maximum of about 2.5 pounds, do not have holes, and ensconce a molten chowder center. Developed in 1880 by a Massachusetts bowling-alley owner, candlepin bowling tasks participants with dispersing crowds of pins that are thinner than standard bowling pins and weigh just a little more than the balls that hunt them. Once suitably shod, weekend revelers compete in 10-frame games until someone usurps victory or starts rocking and cooing to the tiny balls like infants.

About South Boston Candlepin


South Boston Candlepin challenges bowlers to take aim at pintsize pins during rounds of a New England–born variation on the traditional lane-based game. On the alley’s hardwood lanes, bowlers roll 2.5-pound candlepin bowling balls that lack the holes and molten centers of their 10-pin counterparts. Developed in 1880 by a Massachusetts bowling-alley owner, candlepin bowling tasks participants with dispersing crowds of pins that are thinner than standard 10-pin targets and weigh just a little more than the balls that hunt them. While honing curves and picking up spares, bowlers compete in 10-frame games until someone usurps victory or starts cooing to the tiny balls like they're infants.
