Like joggers crossing a highway, bowlers should avoid nearby bumpers and resist the temptation to chase wayward balls into neighboring lanes. Roll carefully with this Groupon.
$19 for Bowling for Four Including Shoe Rental ($52 Value)
Up to four guests lace up rented kicks to hurl balls down lanes for 2.5 hours.
Named the Best Place to go Bowling in Indy Week’s Best of the Triangle 2011 and 2012, The Alley exhibits a genuine retro charm with 24 original hardwood lanes and classic paper scorecards. They also seek to appeal to night owls with a 1 a.m. closing time Friday and Saturday. After spending hours toppling pins, bowlers can divert their attention with flat-screen TVs showing laneside sports and a state-of-the-art sound system blasting toe-tapping didgeridoo drones. They can also purchase lunch and dinner fare from the expanding menu at The Balcony, which replenishes famished bowlers with savory burgers and fries.
