Early in the spring, when the threat of snow still hovers over the state of Minnesota, the golf course at Sundance Golf Banquet Bowl is open. Later in the fall, when the threat of snow once again looms and golf carts begin to go into hibernation, the course remains open. Over the years, the 18-hole, par 72 course has become reliable place for determined golfers to battle for being the first or last of the year to sneak in a round. Recently, Sundance augmented its links with a bowling alley, inviting visitors to escape the elements and pick up some strikes in the process. Away from all the competition, the facility's bar and grill refuels tanks with popular housemade pizzas, half-pound burgers, and plenty of beer and cocktails.
Over the last 50 years, Park Tavern has perfected the convivial trifecta of eating, drinking, and bowling. A menu of gourmet burgers and traditional pub fare mingles with drinks such as 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 $5 all-you-can-bowl nights. 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.
By its very name, Tuttle's Eat, Bowl, Play commands its guests to do three things, all of which they can easily enjoy within a single visit. For "eat," cooks prepare a diverse menu of burgers, sandwiches, and pizzas, a comfort-food smorgasbord akin to your cooler grandma's Thanksgiving spread. For "bowl," 24 modern lanes glow under cosmic light shows and six jumbo video screens. And finally, for "play," entertainment abounds inside the colorful game room, at the full-service bar, and on karaoke or trivia nights—both activities in which players can hopefully put their encyclopedic knowledge of German techno lyrics to use.

There's really only one strict rule on the lanes at Bryant-Lake Bowl: you have to wear socks. Otherwise, feel free to fudge the guidelines of the game and play a round of BLB Crazy Bowl, which encourages players to bowl with their non-dominant hand or try for a strike on their knees.
This playful spirit pops up all over at the Bryant-Lake Bowl facility, which also includes a theater and a restaurant. Improv comedians, musicians, and church groups all stop by to entertain, and the menu is equally eclectic: meat lovers should enjoy the bison and bacon meatloaf, while vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free folks enjoy salads, cheese plates, and main dishes prepped their way. Much of this food is sourced from local farms, just as many of the beers and wines hail from nearby sources instead of the out-of-touch brewers on the moon. Both the bowling alley and the theater have won accolades from Minneapolis CityPages.
