Groupon has been running an amazing deal for 2 hours of bowling at Memory Lanes (pizza and two pitchers of soda included!) for only $30. A friend of mine bought this Groupon a week or so ago, and a group of 4 of us used it this weekend. Memory Lanes is in the Seward neighborhood, and the exterior has a very retro feel:
Inside, the bowling alley is huge- there are 30 lanes! The retro feel ends as soon as you walk inside and are greeted by black lights and music:
#1 essential for bowling alleys: BRING YOUR SOCKS!
Things were off to a great start, but there was a slight hiccup when we found a bone next to the table at our lane:
hilarious disgusting. We debated telling the server about it, but we thought it would be too uncomfortable to say, “um, excuse me…there’s a bone under our table. Do you think you could get rid of it?”
Fortunately, it didn’t deter our enjoyment for too long since our pitchers of diet pepsi and iced tea soon arrived:
A pizza was also included with our deal, and we had our choice of three toppings on the pizza. We went with green peppers, onions, and tomatoes:
Two hours of bowling is a lot of bowling. We bowled 5 games – the last one with our left hands since our wrists hurt too much!
Overall, Memory Lanes was a great time. The music and atmosphere was really fun, and it seemed like they have a lot of interesting events going on throughout the week (rock and roll bingo, live music, and Sunday night trivia – to name a few). I would definitely return here for another bowling excursion…or maybe even Rock and Roll Bingo!
