It’s bowling in a living history exhibit—visit Bryant-Lake Bowl and you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time.
You get your own shoes from the rack on the wall. You keep your own score with a number 2 pencil. The lights over the pins may malfunction, so you must watch the pins to know your score. Come on a Saturday morning and order brunch to be delivered to you as you wait in the player settee.
As you rememerge into the light of day, blinking, you remember what you didn’t experience at Bryant-Lake Bowl that you associate with the days when all the alleys looked like this: clouds of cigarette smoke.
