This is something I have always enjoyed going out and doing with my friends. Shoe rentals and games are pretty cheap, and if you play fast, buying the lane by the hour is a pretty good deal. You don't have to bring anything, the bowling balls are provided, just bring yourself and have fun bowling those strikes. In addition, most facilities have an arcade and a billiards room. The only thing I do not enjoy is leaving the bolwing alley smelling like smoke. If I wanted to smell like smoke, I would of gone to a bar. Oh well.
