Bowling is a model for interpersonal relationships—the ball is your scream and the pins are other people’s opinions. Make a striking statement with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get a bowling outing for four at Ventura Bowling Center (a $38 value). The bowling outing includes:
- One hour of lane rental (a $22 value)
- Shoe rental for four people (a $4 value per person)<p>
At Ventura Bowling Center, 12 pristine lanes invite skillful sphere-slinging alongside a bar area and arcade. As quartets of guests hurl planetoids at cowering pins, rented shoes keep feet from slipping during bowls or scuffing floors during victory tap-dances. Automated scoring screens diligently keep track of heartbreaking spares and glory-filled strikes, and two flat-screen TVs keep waiting bowlers entertained with live pro sports broadcasts. After the game, patrons can linger to sip libations at the well-stocked sports bar (not included in today’s Groupon), exercise thumbs with arcade games, or expend aggression by pasting a picture of an arch-nemesis pin on a dartboard.

The sound of crashing pins draws equally loud cheers from players at Ventura Bowling Center as their progress is tallied via an automatic scoring system. Arcade games and dartboards entice them to take a break from alleyways, while hunger draws them toward the snack bar. Meanwhile, a full onsite bar supplies players with enough bubbly soda and ice-cold beer to celebrate a big win or an impressive moonwalk made possible by a pair of smooth-soled bowling shoes.
