The venerable Lucky Strike lanes celebrates 50 years of business in 2005; yes, successive generations of Americans have been bowling here since Ike was president. The retro ambience has not been manufactured or altered for any contemporary chic; in fact, Lucky Strike isn't really stylish at all, but solid, dependable and comfortable. This is one of Tucson's most democratic venues, where all ages, creeds and colors can be spotted rolling strikes and gutter balls seven nights a week. Specials, beer, pizza and rocking tunes--from Charlie Daniels to Madonna on a recent Monday night--are just the capper.
