Generations Come Together for Food and Fun at the Boston Bowl

By Elizabeth R. Elstien

What do you get when a brewery, bowling lanes and lounge get together? You have the Boston Bowl, a bowling alley that's all grown up.

The Boston Bowl appeals to all ages, as long as they are able to roll a bowling ball. Knocking down pins is how you score in this game, but Boston Bowl makes it easy by having bumper rails on each lane. Ramp up the fun by using bumpers to better power the ball down the lane. "Bowling is a sport that can be enjoyed by people of all ages," says Sales and Marketing Director Jerome Miles, "regardless of their skill level and/or any physical handicaps. The excitement of watching pins fall over and scores rack up is unparalleled to any other sport."

Offering leagues, events, corporate and nonprofit rates, this 24-hour venue truly has something for everyone. "Our non-profit packages were designed and priced to accommodate churches, schools and other non-profit organizations who may be budget sensitive to retail bowling rates." Miles says. From half-price bowling starting at 9 p.m. every Monday to all-day and night open bowl, this is an affordable venue and a way to get moving any time. Tenpin or Candlepin games both can be played at these lanes. An arcade room with electronic and prize games, billiards and outdoor batting cages provide a total game plan for all.

Getting on tap with the brewery craze, food and craft beer is available onsite at the Deadwood Café and Brewery. Menu items include homemade (not frozen) pizza, Boars Head cold-cut sandwiches, fancy burgers, wings, wraps and ribs.

You can book your child's birthday festivities in the main area or have a big-kid party at Xperience, Boston Bowl's adults-only boutique lane and lounge area complete with a private bar. Separate from the main area, Xperience is a 21 and over section that rents out for private and company events.

Don't overlook Boston Bowl's special events held eight times a year. Upcoming events are an October Halloween Costume Party with a cash prize for best dressed decided by an audience-applause vote and Bowling with Santa in December. At Bowling with Santa, "kids meet and bowl with Santa in addition to receiving a toy and a professionally photographed picture," describes Miles.

Whether rocking and rolling at a private Xperience party or knocking down pins at a company get together, bowling is an exercise in fun and sportsmanship. As Miles notes, "Bowling is a game that can be enjoyed by guests as young as one-year old and as old as 100. Family groups of three and sometimes four generations of guests can come together over this sport and create lifelong memories at our venue."
