  • The Alley
    Since its birth in 1949, The Alley, or at least the North Shore ground on which The Alley resides, has come full circle. During its earliest years, it was known as Mary Jane Lanes, a 10-lane bowling center that buzzed with family-friendly competition throughout the 1950s and '60s. That buzzing continued at a much louder decibel level during the 1970s, when Mary Jane Lanes became Minstrel's Alley, a go-to music venue rocked by the riffs of bands such as REO Speedwagon, The Ramones, and Cheap Trick. In the 1980s, after crews restored its lanes and dug out all the burnt electric guitars embedded into its gutters, the building returned to its origins as a family-first bowling center. Today, The Alley has been updated with automatic scoring and projection TVs ready to accommodate guests of all ages. With 5 lanes covered, 3–4 nights a week The Alley hosts live bands that play current hits, never charging a cover. The music hosted ranges from rap or hip hop to jazz and classic rock. The Alley has gained a reputation for being a hot spot in the north shore for solo artists, D.J.s, and up and coming live bands. The venue also specializes in private events for groups up to 350 people, offering a full bar and menu.
