Went for a Beer but a Crazy Bowling Game Broke Out Instead

Friday night we met some friends of ours for dinner at a fabulous Cuban restaurant on the northside of the city.  After dinner we were walking to the bar for some after dinner beverages and happened to pass a bowling alley we've passed a million times in the car but never gone into. Our friend being the crazy, random guy he is convinced us to "just go see".  Mind you I was in a dress and heels.  We walk inside and found ourselves transported in time!  The places is over 40 years old.  Shoes - $3, (socks free!) and $20 for the lane for the hour.  Cash only, no credit accepted here!  Luckily hubs had the greenbacks as the the rest of us had exactly $23 between us 3.  

My friend Lav had to take a picture of me with my hot bowling shoes.  Don't you think the shoes and white socks totally complete the outfit?

We had to keep score.... without a computer... gasp!  Luckily Chuck knew how.  Then he proceeded to make up names for all of us.  I have no idea why my name is Tahisha.  

Beers were cheap by Chicago standards too.  And how thoughtful they had wooden drink holders all around :)  So we had a few (too many).  Needless to say my run I had planned for Saturday is being pushed to Sunday.

It was a fantastic, albeit very random, night!

WOW sounds like a pretty awesome night! We had to learn how to keep score for bowling in gym class in high school and it was tough!! Hope the run goes good tomorrow!

omg where is this place?? the only place i've found to go bowling is southport lanes, and the wait is forever on the weekends since they only have something like 2 lanes.

I can keep score, too. almost a lost art! The shoes are really cool!? What if we had running shoes like those....nah!

Nights like that are the BEST! I'd have no idea how to keep score (especially while drinking), so props to your smarty pants friend.

That sounds like a blast. I havn't been bowling in years. Cute dress and yes, the shoes and socks totally made the outfit.

So old school Jamie, I love it! I too can keep score. I spent way too much time knocking pins down back in the day...

Have a great weekend!
