Best Bowling Lanes 

Saratoga Lanes

The first thing you see after climbing the flight of stairs to Saratoga Lanes is the bar. Behind it stands Mark, who promptly fills your request for shoes, pulling a pair from beneath the chilled Jägermeister machine and asking, "Are you ready for a drink?" Clearly, this is your kind of bowling alley. Opened in 1916, Saratoga Lanes is one of only a handful of second-floor bowling alleys left in the world (R.I.P. Arcade Lanes) and is the oldest alley west of the Mighty Mississip. It looks like it was updated in the 1950s and hasn't changed much since then. Sure it has satellite TV so you can watch the Cards. But there are only eight lanes here, and no automatic scoring. The night is young. Order up another beer and see if you can break 100.
