Ahhh…who doesn’t love a good game of bowling. Bowling can be a fun, easy, and if you “shop” around it can be fairly inexpensive.
My husband (Rikki) birthday just passed on the 28th of January. To celebrate, we went to a few happy hours, bowling, and a nice dinner. We’ve only been in the DMV area for about a month so exploring new places is definitely a must when we go out.
For bowling we picked a hidden bowling alley, in “Chinatown” (yes, DC has a Chinatown). It was tucked away next to the Verizon center but when you walk in the vibe completely changed. We were greeted warmly by the host and was assisted quickly with shoes, and bowling lane set-up.
Lucky Strike has an amazing Happy Hour from 4-7 Monday through Friday. Unfortunately we were a little early for Happy Hour. For $33.17 it covered two games of bowling and shoes for two which is not bad for an upscale location.
We order two beers a piece ( Blue Moon & Goose Island IPA) and Asian Tai Wings. OMG!!!!…the Asian Tai Wings were amazingggggg. Just the right amount of crispy and tossed in just the right amount of flavor (I swear it seems like my husband is a wing connoisseur 🙂 ). The only con with this experience was the beers were kinda high coming in a $6 bucks a piece. Total cost for 4 beers and 1lb (10 wings) of wings $35.00.
So, overall we will definitely be back. The music was live, the atmosphere was calming, and the prices were average for the area. If you are ever in the DMV area and want to enjoy a game of bowling, visit Lucky Strike. If you have been here feel free to leave a comment and tell us about your experience.
Until Next Time,
