Cheap Date Night
If you're looking for a way to hook that special sweetie you've been eyeing, or if you just need a reason to get out on Monday night, then you need look no further than Bryant-Lake Bowl's Cheap Date Night. From 6 p.m. to midnight, $28 gets you two entrées, a bottle of wine or four beers (two apiece), and a game of bowling, which means plenty of icebreakers at a price that appeals to your inner cheapskate. With its sharp interior decorating and hip music, BLB offers the perfect atmosphere to woo your date by candlelit dinner. If that doesn't get the sparks flying, then a round of 10-pin should do the trick, as you can either show off your best power stroke or, if discretion is your favored approach, fudge the numbers a bit on the do-it-yourself scoring and win some bonus points in the process. Assuming all goes according to plan, there's a late-night happy hour after 11 p.m. featuring $3 domestic beers and $4 wine, rail drinks, appetizers, and select tap beers. Even if your game winds up in the gutter, at least you'll be spared a week of getting drunk by yourself while watching another episode of Intervention.
