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.

Hi, I think we're bowling Tuesday at Linbrook - Lanes Now Open - Bowl in Beautiful Anaheim. And I hope wherever you are, you're bowling too, although I'm sure you don't need the practice as bad as I do! Who's with me on Tuesday - Kevin - is it Tuesday or Wednesday?

What's the 411 for Holiday Bowling?
Are we going to Bay Shores this week on Wednesday (12/28)?
Or Mar Vista?

Fountain Bowl - Thursday 12/8/05?
What's up with the Fountain Bowl having a 2.5 hour wait on Hump Day? I mean, $1.99 per game is good, but a two-hour wait?
So, anyone up for Linbrook on Tuesday night? It's $1.75 per game after 8:00 p.m., no lie.
I'm sure there's a wait.

Bayshore-Wed, Nov 30
Hey Bowlfliers, It's "Quartermania" @ Bayshore this (and every) Wed. It's my first night after the semester's over so I'm in a bowling mood. The stats:
Location: Pico & 4th in Santa Monica
Time: 9:00 pm sharp (I will get there at 8 to get a ticket. Yes, it's that popular)
Price: $5 cover + 25 cents for everything else (per game, shoes, Cokes, coffee, popcorn) (ie: 3 games and a shoe rental if nec'y will run you $6)
Diner: Yes, and pretty good, too.
Bar: Yes, good quality for a bowling bar.
Freeway accessible: One minute off the 10 Fwy. Take 4th St exit which is the last exit on the 10 West before PCH.
Occulator's cell: 310-339-7245. Please give me an accurate headcount since I have to shell out the cover in advance and I don't want to lose $15..

So, Dave and I go to the Brunswick Bowl last Thursday in Orange, and the guy at the counter tells me that "your friends were here Monday" and I'm wondering who it is - who hit Bowlapalooza without telling me! and I tell him that I don't have any friends anymore now that PRB is over and by the way, what did they look like. A guy and a girl, he says. 'Fess up! Who was it?

Kevin can't bowl on Monday.
I got a big date with the missus. I think Wednesday is buck-a-game night at Orange Bowl. Anybody interested?

No Bowling Tonight in Santa Monica
Brian and I will not be bowling tonight in Santa Monica.
We will, however, make the trek for Monday night bowling in Orange.
So today I watched the Big Lebowski to get psyced for bowling and even though it was a really weird movie, it had this attachment to bowling like even though his life got more complicated there was this thing about bowling. Bizarre. All I can say is dancing girls with bowling pin head dresses.
See you all monday night!
