Strike, spare, who cares? Bowling is always fun at Port Lavaca's Billiard Bowling & Arcade.
Parking is plentiful, so visitors can feel free to bring their vehicles.
For a weekday or weekend night above the rest, you know exactly where to go, Billiard Bowling & Arcade in Port Lavaca.
Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night, Astro SuperBowl dims the lights for a cosmic bowling experience that embodies the center's intergalactic theme. The rest of the week, the facility rumbles under more earthly bulbs as bowlers blitz pins during rounds of open bowling, tournaments, leagues, and parties. Instead of using synthetic material or giant planks of butter to make slick surfaces, Astro SuperBowl whittled each of its 44 lanes from real wood. The bowling center surrounds its lanes with a spread of other amenities, including a full-service bar, a game room, and a pro shop run by a certified ball driller. The facility has also been recently renovated to include 44 40-inch flat screen televisions, a modernized scoring system, and updated ball racks and returns.
Before rushing into full-fledged competition, players at Oak Hills Lanes hone their craft with pay-as-you-go practice shots. By detecting which pins need to topple, pinsetters enable patrons to score tricky spares as they rehearse for real games or when they must knock down a neighbor's tacky lawn ornaments. Once they've warmed their throwing arms, they face off against comrades during open hours. In addition to bites such as pizza and burgers, the newly remodeled snack bar's cooks sling tacos, enchiladas, and even pancakes. Drinks are also available from a large new bar. Such noshes fuel bowlers of all ages and skill levels at various leagues, but soda and ice cream serve as the main power source during all-inclusive parties.
