Best Duck Hunting


Duckpin bowling alleys may be extinct by the time your kids have kids; only seven duckpin houses remain in Rhode Island, and only 11 states offer duckpin bowling (according to Seek out MEADOWBROOK LANES for family fun on the cheap — $3 per person per string, plus $1.50 for the shoes. Children and old folk have no chance at ten-pin or “big ball” bowling; a duckpin ball weighs only two to four pounds and is slightly larger than a softball or bocce ball. And the modernized keypad requires only entering your name — no score-keeping (or math skills) necessary. The Meadowbrook has 20 lanes, an immaculate interior, and a friendly staff, plus some video games and a snack bar for the kids, and a lounge for the grownups, slinging $7 domestic pitchers all day. There are leagues for all age groups, and birthday parties start at only $5 per rugrat. | 2530 Warwick Avenue, Warwick | 401.737.5402
