Bowling. Bands. Beer. If you can’t have fun here, we give up. There’s swing most Wednesdays, zydeco on Thursdays, and local blues, rockabilly, rock, who cares on other nights. It’s an utter hoot and an unbeatable experience that draws all ages and types to the lanes and spacious, well-air-conditioned dance floor. The custom-embroidered bowling shirts make splendid souvenirs. Fun fact: The hanging, vintage ball return is from the still-missed pre-Katrina location. Tip: Dine next door at Ye Olde College Inn and get an admission discount.
