Cheap, kitschy, and fun as hell, Memory Lanes is the Platonic ideal of what a bowling alley should be. With 30 lanes, it’s almost never too crowded in this throwback 10-pin hall. It’s also the only bowling alley that incorporates live music between bowler and pins, providing a party atmosphere that’s far superior to the tawdry glow-in-the-dark tactics of its competitors. On Friday and Saturday nights, it’s all-you-can-bowl until 2 a.m. for $12.08 — a deal that’s enhanced by Memory Lanes’ seriously underrated late-night menu. Pints are just $3 during happy hour, so you can drink until you hallucinate an extra digit in your game score.
