Bowlers showcase the perfect fusion of style, power, and grace—dazzling onlookers with the flashy footwork and skillful tosses of ice-skating pizza-makers. For $30, today's Groupon gets you unlimited summer bowling for up to six people at The Park Tavern Bowling & Entertainment Center in St. Louis Park, CityPages' pick for 2010's Best Bowling Alley. Once a day during open bowling hours, Groupon holders will be able to acquire—for one hour—one bowling lane plus shoe rentals for a group of six. This Groupon is valid May through August of 2010.
Serving the Minneapolis area for over 50 years with tasty bites, fresh brews, and pin-slamming pastimes, Park Tavern offers more smashing fun than a sledgehammer in a bubble-wrap factory. Lustrous lanes waxed smoother than a buttered bathtub play host to fun family outings, where sibling rivalries can be settled with the soothing sound of scattered pins. A video jukebox streaming classic music videos on five large screens keeps the energy level high and the post-strike victory dance moves poppin' and lockin'. The Park Tavern's two bars and kitchen (not included in this Groupon) stand ready to keep rollers well fueled for that final spare pick-up.
Besides strengthening arm muscles, thighs, glutes, calves, and Jeff Bridges impressions, 10-pin bowling at Park Tavern strengthens socio-familial bonds by giving friends and families a casual, nonviolent arena to challenge each other over chit-chat and fermented ales. This all-inclusive atmosphere makes Park Tavern the perfect venue for introducing friends from different social circles. Bring your poetry friends to play your fantasy-football buddies, or build camaraderie with coworkers after a long day coworking with today's Groupon to The Park Tavern Bowling & Entertainment Center.
It's recommended to call ahead to find out if lanes are available.

The Park Tavern
Over the last 50 years, The Park Tavern has perfected the convivial trifecta of eating, drinking, and bowling. A menu of gourmet burgers and traditional pub fare mingles with a drink menu of domestic and imported beers and wines for between-frame refueling. On Mondays, the alley fills with high-energy tunes, and bowling balls careen all night during the $5 all-you-can-bowl nights. The Park Tavern rolls out its varied bowling buffets for corporate events, birthday parties, or the anniversary of the end of bowling prohibition during the Nixon administration.
