We are coming close to the end of the week, thank God, and so you’re going to need something to do with your days off. So I’ve got a quick fire recommendation for you. It’s fun, its fast, and it’s an old school classic. Stretch out your swinging arm, we’re going bowling.
It had been over 4 weeks since I’d seen Nessa, what with my Surgery and her all fancy American holiday- I know which I’d rather do. Not quite back up to eating out, I suggested a non-foodie after work activity. Again, not quite wanting to travel too far, I suggested Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes. A vintage American bowling lane playing classic swing tunes, serving G & Ts and thankfully none of the flashing neon lights. Oh and without the screaming kids. Let’s not pretend we like that ear bursting wale when they score a big fat zero.
With no time to loose, we picked up our chosen balls and it was game set match. Friends, but for the next hour, rivals.
The first 45 minutes, we surpassed both our expectations. I’ll be completely honest, I had prepared to flunk, and yet we were surprisingly good. I know, I know, I’m just so multi-talented.
Oh yeah baby!
But on the other hand, I may have spoken too soon...
Things only went down hill from there. Spectacularly.
So I ended on a bum note. Typical.
After all that swinging and throwing, it burns up quite a sweat. Sadly I wasn't up to the classic, delicious American Dinner that sits in the Lanes, but fear not, I only lived a short walk away. I didn't starve my good friends.
Oh and I have to tell you, I spied the more amazing thing. They serve 27 inch Pizzas! Like that is the size of a table! So grab your mates, grabs some drinks and have a great one this weekend. Just some good, classic fun. Why does it always have to be complicated? Sometimes the classics are the best.
