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 bowling and one shoe rental (a $3.50 value) at Strike Ten Lanes in Roselle. Rates per game vary depending on time (weekdays before 5 p.m., $3 a game; Monday–Thursday after 5 p.m., $3.75 a game; Friday after 5 p.m. and weekends, $4.50 a game), so plan ahead to use your Groupon to the fullest.
Strike Ten Lanes is a state of the art bowling center with 14 lanes, 20 HD televisions, and two lounge and bar areas. Slip into swanky rental shoes, select an appropriately weighted sphere, and battle it out for two rounds against the evil pins. Bowlers can socialize, strategize, or rhapsodize between frames from the long, comfy couches at the end of each lane. Time your rolls and subsequent high-fives to the beat of tunes streaming straight from the live DJ booth into Strike Ten's high-tech sound system.
Strike Ten's décor has a modern vibe, with grid patterns on the ceiling and funky light fixtures. Reward your bowling hand for a game well-played or an itch well-scratched with an ice-cold beverage from the bar, and relax in front of one of several giant TVs for almost any professional sporting event you can think of. Piping hot edibles flow constantly from Strike Ten's full kitchen, with highly palatable menu items such as black 'n' tan onion rings ($6), pizzas ($10–$12), and gourmet burgers ($6.50–$8).
Although Strike Ten Lanes has few reviews, it boasts more than 450 Facebook fans.
Strike Ten Lanes
The dull roar of a bustling restaurant, the spirited chatter of commentators on HDTVs, the pulsing beats of live DJs—at Strike Ten Lanes, such noises ring commonly in harmony with the thunder of strikes and the screams of falling pins. The lanes’ modern touches, including automatic scoring, carry over into the lane-side lounge areas, stuffed with comfy couches and low tables. Strike Ten isn't limited to just adults; it offers kid-friendly options with toddler bowling shoes, balls, ramps, and automatic bumpers.
On the other side of the alley, customers can take a break from bowling with video gaming and video poker, or by sitting around circular booths to chow down on burgers, pizza, fresh wings, or housemade salsa from the onsite eatery's full menu. They also nab daily drink specials or any of eight beers on tap or 35 bottled varieties from two full bars. TVs and projection screens, meanwhile, display every Bulls and Blackhawks game and other heated contests between sports teams. Strike Ten Lanes keeps its doors open seven days a week and can cater to large, corporate events.
