Few things are just as much fun for adults as they were in childhood, but bowling is. Supplant soda with beer and don an innuendo-laden team moniker, and bowling becomes a game for the grownups. Still too cool? Take the irony route (you dug "The Big Lebowski," right?). But really, with deals this good at bowling alleys, you don't have to hide under hipster cover.
Northeast is known for keeping it blue-collar, and Elsie's obliges with $9 unlimited bowling from 9:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday through Thursday. Naturally, the experience isn't complete without cheap beer and greasy grub, so enjoy $2.75 domestics and rail drinks and $4 select appetizers until 11:30 p.m. Fact: The more clogged your arteries, the better you bowl.
Elsie's sister alley in Seward is known for its punk-rock Mondays, but the penny-pinching party continues the following evening. On Tuesdays from 10 p.m. to close, the flash of a college ID or service industry pay stub lets you roll all the frames you fancy for just $6 and put back $2.50 PBR tallboys and $5 bomb shots, plus other late-night happy hour deals. DJ Dudley D handles the music, so expect less crust than on Mondays.
If the all-you-can-bowl angle sounds excessive, BLB might be more your speed. Squeeze in a quick novelty game of 10-pin on Sunday nights from 6 p.m.-close for only $2 per game. Plus, it's neighborhood night, so get your lane-side lounge on with discounts on select local beers and apps.
