Though this swanky bowling mecca (formerly the less chichi Leisure Time Bowl) has obvious appeal for grown-ups (cocktails, a lounge and dance club), it also offers packages for families. Twenty-five bucks per person covers bowling, soda, shoes, pizza and a chicken-bite platter. Monday through Saturday before 5pm and all day Sunday. Kids' parties and family brunch are also available.
