BEST BOWLING ALLEY Minneapolis 2004 - Mady's - CLOSED
Mady's is a well-kept secret, and we're tempted to keep it that way. Why not send the hipsters to Elsie's and keep this Nordeast gem/dump to ourselves? Located in the basement of a strip mall, next to a mattress store, Mady's is about as unprepossessing as lanes come, with a stuffed marlin over the bar entrance who looks like he's seen better days, and with bits of insulation bleeding out of the walls in places. But no matter. Tuesdays and Fridays, you won't find a cheaper date anywhere, with $1.50 games, taps, and burgers. On Saturdays, $13 will get you the chance to bowl for some pretty decent jackpots while getting lit on strong, cheap well drinks. Be warned, though: Moonlight Bowling gets crowded, so plan to show up by at least 8:30.
