"Let's go bowling!" is my son's favorite suggestion when I ask
what we should make of a rainy afternoon.
the bowling alley in the Hotel Sax hotel is perfect: It's got 24
long lanes, it's never
crowded (at least during the
kid-friendly hours, every day 11 a.m. 'til
8 p.m.), they have bumpers so
there are no too-sore losers, you can catch up on all the new music
videos by artists you've never even heard of before, AND you can
order a thin-crust pizza ai quattro formaggio
s'mores for dessert, instead of the usual bowling-alley
$3.95 for regular shoes
$4.95 for 'cool' shoes (whatever that means)
Open play before 5 p.m. is $4.95/game - after 5 it's $6.95.
Reduced parking available at the Hotel Sax entrance near the
closest Marina tower.
