I’ve gone bowling once in my life – over a decade ago – and all I can remember of the experience was being shocked that it’s nothing like the Nintendo Wii. So, I was a bit skeptical about taking on the new bowling joint in Leesburg, Virginia. This time, the stakes would be a little higher, since I was going with my nine-year old. After all, it’s one thing to be clobbered by friends; but, it’s an entirely different story when your offspring leaves you in the dust.
We met some of our good friends at the new Bowlero in the Village at Leesburg. Pro tip: If you’re looking for the best bang for your buck, Monday is the perfect night to hit Bowlero. After 6pm, you get unlimited bowling + shoes for just $13.19/person – it’s definitely the best deal in town! I started the night with a volley of gutter balls; but, while my self-esteem took a hit, it provided much entertainment for everyone else. Thankfully, the kind staff took pity on me and offered to put up bumpers. My score quite easily quadrupled after the guards prevented my bowling balls from being sucked towards the gutter!
I never vanquished UnPhiltered Guy, but I was so close. On our last game, I was ahead by a few points until the second to the last frame, when he bowled THREE strikes. *sighs* Who does that!?
But, Bowlero isn’t just a bowling alley – it’s also an eatery, with tons of tempting entrees at your finger tips. We really wanted to try their 5 pound, colossal burger (that feeds 5 people!); but, since our group was rather small, we opted for their gigantic pretzel. It really should have been measured for the Guinness Book of World Records!
