When we bought our house in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood, there were two delightfully goofy bowling alleys right around the corner. Leilani Lanes closed, but Sunset Bowl stayed open.
They serve beer in bowling-pin shaped bottles! They're open 24-7! What a wonderful place to eventually teach Miss Kelly about the wild vintage world that is bowling!
Except that they'll be gone before Kelly's even old enough to wear bowling shoes--the site has been sold to a developer. Damn it! Apparently there will be only five bowling alleys left inside the Seattle city limits now. This really makes me sad.
