Let's face it: Bowling alleys were never meant to be cool. Which is why those flashy downtown alleys, with their DJs, high prices, and precious décor, can't hold a candle to classic Frames, formerly know as Leisure Time. Thanks to recent renovations, this twenty-eight-lane bowler's dream boasts all the up-to-date bowling innovations (like computerized scoring and waitresses who bring chicken fingers and wings directly to the lane), but keeps the ambiance of a suburban childhood staple. Frames is also a great place to drink, with reasonably-priced, reassuringly standard cocktails and specials like the "gallon-sized beer tower," which comes to the lane complete with a kegstand-ready tap.
