Mustang Alley's: Ouch!
I heard scary rumors about how much it costs to bowl at the brand-new Mustang Alley's in Harbor East, and I just had them confirmed.
Ready for this?
Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, it costs $55 to rent a lane for an hour. Lanes are limited to parties of five or less people. Mondays through Thursdays, it costs $35. Shoes are $1.50 all the time. I think my wallet just screamed.
General manager Jay Teramani tried to calm me down.
"You've gotta come in here and see what we're doing," he said.
Maybe during the week, Jay. I don't know if The Sun will pay for me to go on the weekend.
Just for kicks, I called the Patterson Bowling Center, which is .7 miles away. They have a special for parties of 10 or more, where two hours of bowling plus shoes is $13 per person. Their regular rates are $4 per person per game and $2 for shoes. That's a little more in my price range.
