Best Bowling Alley - 2009
Any sport best enjoyed with a pint of beer ought to at least be in the running for National Pastime. Memory Lanes mixes the greatest aspects of bowling in one space: beer specials, plentiful lanes (30 here), and lots of novelties scheduled weekly. Some evenings feature glow-in-the-dark bowling or a bizarre light show called "Thunder Alley," while other nights up the hip factor with live music ranging from punkabilly acts to rock bands performing directly on the lanes, who sound great thanks to Memory Lanes' state-of-the-art sound system. Let's see your Wii compete with that.
