In those days, bowling was still a popular activity among the American working class. There was still televised bowling every Sunday morning. Pete Weber was a fixture on said programming.
Today, bowling is in catastrophic decline in the US. Nevertheless, I'm amazed to see that that bowling alley I went to still exists. Here's the website.
Let me first of all say that the place is definitely still open. There are Google reviews from as little as 3 weeks ago.
But look at that website. I can't believe it. It was clearly made AT LEAST 20 years ago.
If you want directions to the place, input your address into the little Yahoo Maps thing in the bottom. YAHOO MAPS! I didn't even know such a thing existed.
There's a links page. Remember those?
Look at the shitty resolution of those buttons.
"Contact us" takes you to a clearly default colour scheme...I don't even know what these things are called any more. There used to be websites with a bunch of these things that you could put on your website like a counter, a forum, SCRIPTS. I think the word I'm looking for here is "scripts". But maybe not.
Oh yeah, that animated gif at the top.
The horrible quality of those scanned pictures of the prices and whatnot. And $1.75 per game? $1 per hot dog? Those prices look like they're from at least 20 years ago too. Although, most of the prices appear to have been crudely changed subsequently so maybe it is updated. But the hot dog price hasn't been changed.
A different 1990s background for each page. I especially like the one for honor roll 700s.
Oh, if you go to the menu on the restaurant page you see that hot dogs are in fact $1.89 now. They just didn't update the price on the main page. Still, not bad. Find a hot dog for £1.20 in the UK. You wouldn't want to eat it. You probably don't want to eat the ones at the bowling alley either, though.
League standings are absolutely updpated. They go up to 2018. Huge list of everyone's name and average score and whatever else.
Tiny pictures of the current champions. Who knew that black people bowl?
The link to the pool (as in billiards) section doesn't really work. Maybe they got rid of the pool tables.
Open 11 am to 7 pm. Closed weekends during the summer. How bizarre. Not very long hours and closed weekends during the summer. It's seems the sort of thing that people might want to do late into the evening, combined with alcohol, which they serve.
Anyway, good for them. I guess.
