Victorian bowlers wore hats with just enough space above the head to store a regulation-size bowling ball, enabling them to line up rows of pinstripe-clad town criers for impromptu street matches. Embrace late-empire ingenuity with todays Groupon: for $7, you get four games of candlepin bowling (a $2.85/game value) with shoe rental (a $1.70/rental value) at Harvard Bowling Lanes (up to an $18.20 total value). This Groupon is valid for groups of two or four bowlers.
Eschewing out-of-shape duckpins for their more elegant counterparts, Harvard Lanes illuminates the path to family fun with classic candlepin bowling on 14 lustrous runways. Pin-pummeling pairs or quartets can grab a paper scoring card and some fashionable tri-tone kicks to experience a style of bowling invented in Worcester that still carries the proud torch of local tradition. A brightly colored interior bedecked with classic decor transports bowlers back to a time when families spent quality time together and red-striped candles were properly chastised for their Communist sympathies.
With outside food welcome in the alleys friendly confines, groups can bring their own turkeys to baste with well-placed strikes in the lanes. Bowlers can also socialize with their fellow pin-smashers in four decorated party rooms, check out the slew of snack machines, or challenge each other to grudge matches in the arcade.
