I feel your pain Rev dude, it sucks, but life goes on, man. At least you have fond memories of the place, take comfort in that.

Oh, absolutely.  Then again, it's been more than 30 years since any of my toes slipped over the line of the front door's threshold so it's not like I was a regular there.  But, like most bowling alleys, it was a pretty decent place to hang out if you're into that sort of thing, and it's another piece of my home town's history that's gone forever.  Wave of the future, Dudes.  I just hope what's left of the building makes it to the finals.

How about a go fund me campaign to buy it, and hire a bunch dudes from this site to run it. Only caucasians, oat sodas and sasparillas at the bar. Foot faults will be enforced.

At this point it would have to be one hell of a campaign, 'cause the building is well on it's way to becoming a BevMo.  ::)  It would probably be cheaper to build a bowling alley from scratch.

Nihilist bastards took my local bowling alley, where I had rolled at since I was a small kid, where I used to rent movies in my formative years when they had a side room VHS rental business, where I played my first game of mini golf outside, where I used to pretend I was Paul Newman in The Hustler on the back room pool tables, where I took my future wife on our first date, and turned it into fuckin storage sheds.


....GODDAMMIT!

Well, they finally did it, it's a-happening, dudes, my local lanes will be shutting down for good on Saturday.

A fellow dude and I, rolled our last game this evening and though my score was rubbish, (not even a strike), it was kinda sad knowing I'd never roll those boards again.

Turns out, it's gonna be boarded up, all contents sold off and the land left derelict, so it'll be easier for the new leaseholder to do something with, which is a real shame, man.

On the upside, I'll have fond memories of playing in a doubles league aside from casual games and I managed to swing a pair of (fairly decent) rental shoes and a pin as a momento. But hey, life goes on, man

Bummer, man. My sympathies.

How awesome would it be to get one of the lanes and install it in your home? I wonder what the developer/buyer is doing with the salvage. Could be able to swing it pretty cheap. Never know.

That a bummer.
Bowling alleys are going down right and left.
Meanwhile golf is doing great.
I don't know exactly what that means but it seems in keeping with general trends.
Just imagine they put you into carbonite back in 1976 and woke you up today.
You'd find that rock and roll is gone, your bowling alley is closed and Bruce Jenner the big hero who won the decathlon cut off his dick and became a woman and the president of the US is an orange braying jackass former host of a show where celebrities run fake companies.
Put me back in the carbonite please.

Fuuuuuuck...I need a drink now. Like, if I owned part of Seagrams or Hennesey or whatever, I'd make a commercial out of these points and just watch the booze roll out and the money roll in.

I just feel bad for the staff, who have now had to find other work in a place where pickings are slim. That and there's not much to to with your family/kids in the evenings round these parts.

Save our lanes campaign is a great idea. Man, I have not been bowling in quite some time. Maybe knocking over some pins and throwing back a few barely sandwiches is a great way to spend a Friday night. It's a shame to see local businesses go under, kind of takes away the pride of supporting your community.
