Places to Bowl/Reviews

Been wanting to put up bowling locations for a long time now. Information is pretty accurate and I'm sure it's subject to change and always factor in shoe rental, if needed. This is a helpful site AMF.com.

Punk Rock Bowling 2006 . . . 3 Months later

O.K. I know I'm finally getting to putting up my pics of Punk Rock Bowling 2006.
I really don't have a Top whatever for the event. It was a tough tornament this year. More teams signed up and Bad News Bowlers couldn't even get to Day 2 playoffs. But we did our best and had a great time.


Some of the highlights were (I'm sure there are more but after 3 months what can you expect): Secret Shopping Mission with Wanda to Target, wedding gown shopping with and for Sandra, Dinner @ Billy Bob's Steak House with Brian, Sandra and Justin, Dinner with Wanda's mom @ Cheesecake factory in Henderson.
Here is my photoblog:

Kick Off Party at Jillian's Downtown - featuring The Briefs and Swingin Utters - Photos by Liz Croft - Picture of Lucky and Wanda was taken with my Nokia 6682

Award's Party @ Sam's Town - Featuring Manic Hispanic and the Hollywood Pinup Girls - Photos by Brian and Justin. That might have been a mistake to give them my camera and you'll know why . . . Brian's face is priceless and I even cut down the amount of pictures, this isn't half of it. The last pic of Manic Hispanic was taken with my Nokia 6682
