Spare Lounge.

There's bowling in downtown Cincinnati, what?! Yep. You heard right. There's four lanes of bowling now in downtown Cincinnati! And tonight, we braved the bitter cold, walked a couple blocks down Seventh Street to check out the brand new Spare Lounge...

We had a best of seven game series that was tied at two all dating back to when we were in Boston at the end of October for Cleve and Alyssa's wedding. Now it was finally time to settle the score. LET'S DO THIS!!!!

Genifer took the first game, and led the whole way after opening up with a big strike...

Yep. It's now a best out for eleven. :)

One cool feature on Spare Lounge is up on the balcony overlooking the lanes...

Another cool feature is back by the bathrooms. And it's a window that allows you to see into the inner workings of the pinsetter...

It's pretty cool to watch how all that machinery works. But please leave your shoes...

It's pretty awesome to have a bowling alley just down the street from us. I know we'll be back very soon to try to wrap up our best of eleven game series. :)
