What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews | Pro Bowlers Who Were Also Animals
Split and strike through 30 frames at Sunset Lanes in Beaverton. You get three games plus shoe rental during a single visit to the 36-lane bowling alley (a favorite for its low rates, clean, family-friendly atmosphere, and the spider-like ability of its workers to sense danger before it happens). Sunset Lanes regularly offers specials Mondays and Tuesdays after 9 p.m. and Sunday before 11 a.m., but this deal lets you bowl whenever you want (even during cosmic bowling times) for an even better price.
Sunset Lanes' lanes have a lounge-like ambience where the friendly staff delivers food (such as the elusive calzone, handcrafted sandwiches, and more mouthwatering menu items) to the comfortable couches while you wait your turn for another blissful roll down an alley of highly polished fun. Multiple Groupons can be used per lane, so friends and family can roll together at a deep discount. The alley was recently renovated: it uses flat-screen displays with automatic scoring and has an expanded arcade. With Guinness, Stella, Drop Top Amber, Mirror Pond Pale Ale, Black Butte Porter, and more on tap, it's easy to strike, strike, and finally turkey.
Sunset Lanes is open late (open play hours last until midnight four days a week and until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday), so you can blast pins into the wee hours. If you bowl before 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, when it costs $3.75 per game, this Groupon saves you 52% (shoe rental for adults is $3.25); if you go after 6 p.m. when it's $4.75, you'll save 60% (see Sunset Lanes' rates for more info). If you want to experience the laser lights during cosmic bowling, head over on Friday night, Saturday afternoon or night, or Sunday night. Click here to reserve your lane.

Pro Bowlers Who Were Also Animals
While professional bowling isn’t considered the most athletically demanding sport, it’s generally agreed that it’s the sport that has the highest percentage of athletes who have also been animals. Here are just some of the animals that have gone pro:
Milty, The Kidnapped Hedgehog: Found on the street by a trio of hooliganish college students, Milty was brought to a bowling alley as a joke during Pledge Week. When he bowled a perfect 300, the sports agents came knocking. Milty retired after a number of spectators noticed his image on several Lost Hedgehog posters written in children’s handwriting on local telephone polls.
Jessie, The Back-Talking Parrot: Never the strongest bowler on the tour, Jessie became a fan favorite for his coarse, yet often clever, trash talk during matches. Many opponents were reduced to tears after being told “Your mother never loved you” and “You were a mistake” by a bowling parrot. Jessie retired after a pin-resetting accident left him unable to speak or move.
Lassie: This girl could do anything.
Broderick, The Bowling Bear: While modern photo-analysis reveals that this 1920s favorite was just a guy in a bear suit, it thoroughly convinced Prohibition-era audiences. In 1933, he ran for vice president under FDR and won, but was ruled ineligible due to bearness and was replaced by John Nance Garner.
