The Low Down


Save Money: Bowl Monday through Thursday for only $19 an hour per lane (one to five people per lane), instead of coughing up $32 an hour per lane Friday or Saturday night.

When to Go: Weekly leagues and huge crowds on weekend nights keep this spot packed (though that's part of its high-energy charm); try a late weeknight for less company.

Know Before You Go: Shoe rental is $3 a pair.
