K-J Bowl, Edmonton

I'm sick of constantly relying on my car to get to where I need to go, so I'm always on the look-out for interesting things to do in the neighbourhood close to home. This strip-mall basement bowling alley is a throw back to the 60s, and I've totally fallen in love with it. I've discovered that 5 pin bowling is something the whole family can enjoy - me, my wife, my five year old, and my 2-1/2 year old all have a blast at K-J Bowl.

I’m not sure if it’s the older-than-me rental shoes, the rails that prevent gutter balls for the kids, or the flier for Sunday afternoon ‘glow’ bowling – but something strikes me in just the right way here. Beer is 4 bucks, bowling is $4.50, and shoes are a buck and a half. If you’re serious about bowling, this certainly isn’t the biggest, newest, or best alley in Edmonton, but it’s definitely the closest one to my house.
Don’t forget to check out the bathrooms – the colorful tiles on the walls are worth the price of admission!

K-J Bowl, 12143 54 Street.

you could tell them that I sent you, but they probably won’t know who the heck you’re talking about :)
