The three holes on a bowling ball represent the three phases of bowling: wind-up, release, and genuflection. Send a ball properly on its way with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two games of bowling and two shoe rentals at Zodo's Bowling & Beyond (up to a $21.90 value).
Seven nights a week, fluorescent red and green shoes saunter onto Zodo's 24 synthetic lanes, rolling spheres for the judgment of the space's automated, animated scoring system. Optional automatic bumpers and ball ramps keep spinning orbs accounted for, and Glow Bowl, Wednesdays through Sundays, douses the game in a neon sheen and reveals hidden murals of historic bowlers on every wall. Thursdays through Saturdays, over 50 vivid lane-scanning lights and blacklights swim through fog and floating musical notes as a request-honoring DJ plays tunes. Though not included in today's Groupon, Z's Tap House & Grill replenishes ball-rollers with 40 on-tap beers, a full drink-menu, and grill food, and the arcade keeps hands busy with something other than transferring forward momentum.
Zodo's Bowling & Beyond's prices vary throughout the week.
Zodo's - Bowling & Beyond
In bowling, the perfect strike requires a careful calculation of force, spin, and positioning—but Zodo's - Bowling & Beyond injects fun into the physics lesson with 24 gleaming lanes ready to take whatever you can throw at them, provided you've donned the proper fluorescent footwear (each rented shoe half-red, half-green).
Healthy competition and the joy of yelling 'strike!' are pretty entertaining all on their own, but Zodo's doesn't stop there—Glow Bowling's atmospheric touches include black lights, a live DJ, and fog. Twice-daily happy hours, wine by the barrel, 40 on-tap beers keep spirits high, and a menu of gourmet pizza, fresh salads, burgers, and more creative fare provide more sustenance than a feast of felled pins. Bowlers can also take a break for other games in the arcade.
