Sun January 10 at 11:00 AM, Expo Bowl
5261 Elmwood Ave, Indianapolis, IN, USA (Map & Directions)
Hey Hoosiers! How about an afternoon of bowling with your fellow Mefites? I had in mind the Expo Bowl in Beech Grove- sort of a throwback kind of meetup. Anyone interested? Bowling, beer, and family-style fun! If we get enough folks we can get two lanes & really look pro :)

I probably can't make the time--what time and day did you have in mind?

I love to bowl even though I suck at it. Depending on when it is, I'd like to go.

Sounds like fun, and I love to bowl. But, I'm afraid my back won't allow it anymore :(

You could always just drink.

I want to do this. There's probably never going to be a meet-up closer than 10 miles from my house. Expo Bowl is huge. It has "80 Lanes of Great Bowling Excitement!" and is nonsmoking.

It was a pretty nice place last time I was there, but that was a couple years ago, so.

If you're thinking about doing this during the weekend, I can't come on the 9th, but I'm free all day on the 10th. I might be able to come on a weeknight, too.

Don't worry if you're a bad bowler or can't bowl. It's unlikely I'll score more than 100 points :)

The 10th good for everyone? Say, 7 PM?

I'd love to go, but the 10th is our anniversary.

Alternatively, How about, say, noon?

So far as I know the 10th works for me. I will confirm things with my lovely wife.

The wife and I may come (and maybe even with the baby). We're all a bit sickish, though, so will wait and see.

I'm in for the 10th, whatever time y'all decide.

I moved it to 11 AM because the rates are cheaper before noon. I hope to see you there!

How long do we think it'll go? My D&D game needs to move to Sunday afternoon, but it shouldn't be a conflict.
posted by Gelatin at 10:28 AM on January 8, 2016

I'd imagine a couple of hours, probably.

I plan to be near the main entrance. You can text me- my # is in my profile.

We're sitting on a couch in the beer thirty lounge if you're looking for us.

Thanks for setting this up, pjern. It was nice meeting you, Gelatin and his two daughters. Even with the few people who came, I had a good time. I'm glad we braved the arduous journey through the frozen wastelands to come.

Huge bonus: Donald Trump, et al. were never even mentioned.

A good time was had by all! And it seems we all scraped some of the rust off our games. I hope we go bowling again sometime.
