What could be more fun than hurling a hefty ball down a wooden lane toward a bunch of pins, while simultaneously keeping all your money in your wallet? Not much.
Today, thrifty bowling enthusiasts can rejoice because 20th Century Bowling Lanes, 4712 W. State St., is celebrating National Bowling Day with prices even better than the year it was founded: 1950. The alley will dole out FREE games from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. today. Bust out the shirt with your name embroidered on it, channel you inner "Dude," and get ready to rock some seriously sexy used, two-tone shoes.
No purchase is necessary, but shoes aren't included in the promotion. Patrons will receive one FREE game. And if using your arm muscles makes you hungry, cruise by the cafe for a breakfast sandwich, cheeseburger or basket of finger steaks. Visit 20th Century's website for a cafe menu and more info.
