Best Bowling Alley

Lucky Strike

Let's be honest, moms: How many hot summer days, teetering upon the edge of stark-raving madness, have you elected not to take your kids bowling, since it's so damn smoky inside? Well, here's a newsflash. Thanks to the statewide indoor smoking ban, bowling alleys don't stink anymore! (OK, maybe the shoes.) Lucky Strike is our readers' pick. They've got league information, $2.50 shoe rental, party packages, special programs, pizza and so much more. Get the little bastards out of the house for a couple of hours, then have a martini, and seduce the plumber, all 100 percent guilt free. Do we live in wondrous times, or what?
