Bowling shoes aren’t just fashionable—they provide the added two inches of height needed to load your ball into a regulation-size trebuchet. Lace up and reach for a three-holed pin-puncher with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get an unlimited summer bowling package (up to a $650 value) at Ten Pin Alley & Spike's in Hilliard.
With one hour of bowling and shoe rental for up to six people per day from June 1 to August 31, Ten Pin's summer package lets you finally put yourself through the white-knuckled bowling training montage you've been secretly planning ever since your crushing defeat at your nine-year-old nephew's birthday party. With regular bowling rates ranging from $25 to $27 per hour, plus $3.95 for shoe rentals per person, a dedicated pin-pummeler could easily stretch this Groupon beyond its projected value.
Rich with creature comforts such as sink-into-able soft couches for in between throws, Ten Pin Alley & Spike’s is the crown jewel in central Ohio's bowling tiara. The décor's slick retro vibe runs counter to the typical dilapidated orange-and-brown alleys dripping with Nixon-era dread, and might even cause you to hallucinate that a Sterling-Cooper office party is bowling in the lane next to yours. The casually upscale atmosphere is equally welcoming to families, grizzled bowling veterans, and casual fans looking for a chance to use the fingerless gloves they bought ironically. If your bowling arm grows weary, Ten Pin Alley & Spike's also features a full bar and lounge, an outdoor bar and patio, an arcade, and league play on their three sand volleyball courts. A menu of stylish comfort food, meanwhile, cures any famished delirium with renovated classics such as The Big Lebowski nachos ($8.95) or the smoked pork flatbread ($11.75) prepared by an in-house chef.
With the spirit of summer creeping up behind us like a lilac-scented maniac, today's Groupon lets you get the drop on the season by boosting your recreation without having to resort to robotically jumping through a makeshift sprinkler. Invite along up to six coworkers in your morning clown-carpool for a magical summer of strikes, spares, splits, and turkeys at Ten Pin Alley & Spike's.
