Focus, People, Focus

Growing up in the big, bad metropolis of Kankakee, we became very good at bowling. After all, in a town where the yearly opening of the Dairy Queen was a significant event, entertainment options were a bit few and far between. Now that we are bonafide "city folk," however, bowling has become one of our standard "gonna do"s, one of those activities we say we want to do almost weekly, but in which we find ourselves rarely engaging. We've become a bit frustrated trying to find a cheap, fun lane to get our bowl on (thanks, Lucky Strike, but "small plates" are not part of our bowling vernacular), but this shot of Timber Lanes by pantagrapher gives us some hope for a great dive to call home. What about you, fine readers? Any recommendations for those of us that want to get back in the game?
