No Time to Spare 

It's the tenth frame for this museum

As members of the Riverfront Times' bowling league can attest (that's right, we have our own league), there are few pleasures in life as great as the feeling you get when you send all ten pins flying with just one roll of the ball. Unfortunately, the amateur RFT bowlers don't get to experience strikage as much as they would like to, but they still have a pretty good time achieving an occasional strike or spare, drinking pitchers, and munching on stuffed nachos (a most delightful treat). If you're like us and you frequently enjoy the ten-pin pursuit — or even if it's been awhile — it's time to properly send off one of the most special odes to bowling: the International Bowling Museum & Hall of Fame (111 Stadium Plaza; or 314-231-6340). This long-time downtown institution is closing for good after Saturday, November 8, which gives us all just a few days to see the exhibits on the history of the sport and bowl a few frames on the museum's basement lanes. The IBMHF is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and admission costs $6 to $7.50.
