I don't have the balls...
Oh sure, I've spent time in the gutter, usually stayed in my lane and missed my share of strikes, spares and splits.
But I never bought my own bowling ball.
My game was not good enough for that very personal expense.
I'm a "house" bowler. Use what's provided and hope the hole spacing fits my hand. I also rent the funny multi- colored shoes too.
People walk into the place carrying their own zipped bowling bag and they are cool.
I was visiting the Post and Courier building downtown and saw "The Alley" across the street at 131 Columbus Street. It's been opened a few months.
Fiery Ron's Home Team BBQ so I know that taste.
It would be familiar comfort food.
The really good players brag about bowling a 300 game.
If I combined the scores of two of my games, I've probably rolled at least 300.
Well, maybe add three together.
I do plan to check it out.
Maybe invite my Photography Group to bring their cameras and snap the colorful graphics.
Wonder if any of them carry a camera bag AND a bowling bag?
Oh, never sniff the shoes they hand you.

The newest downtown alley.
Like the Ravenel Bridge, it has 8 lanes.
Fits right in.
