We have somthing remotley similar here called Rock-n-Bowl. It's kind of sick really. First they blare music over the speakers. Usualy rock or rap. Then it gets dark, and the place fills with smoke, and then some lights come on, and occasionaly the lanes light up along the sides with those stupid rope lights, and then they kill more lights, make more fog, and at the end they play sad country music, and at that point I feel like suicide. Then they suddenly air out the fog, turn on every damn light in the place, and then yell at us to leave.

I'd sure like to try this glow bowling if I got a chance.

Okay, so we have another vote for bowling...
I bowl around 150- but I have on occassion let go of the ball too soon and then, well, it goes the wrong way...
Would we have enough cars/transport to get us to a lane?

My car can hold 4-5 people, providing I actually get MY car and don't use one of the family cars (still 4-5 people), and I'd have no problem making extra trips, seeing as it cant be that far.

I found a lane that's only 2 blocks from the Convention Center:

Jillian's Entertainment:



This way we could avoid driving anywhere.

cool, I had mentioned Jillian's before- somewhere- and actually my understanding is that it's in the mall complex- which is attached to the Omni Severin- which is where I'm staying.  It's supposed to be a very cool place to hang out- a sports bar type of place...
are we going to 'play by ear' or pick a general time/date?

I figure we play it by ear untill we get close to the convention.

Yes, just for your info the mall does have several bars.  If I remember correctly there is a small club type bar - dancing - for the younger set like late teens early twenties.  The sports bar is more for any age.   I believe there is at least one other one. 

Just to let you know they are usually packed and packed some more.  At least the few times I've been there with my friend who in Indy.

I'd be in for some bowling too if the timing works out for me. Perhaps I can drag a couple of the FFURG guys with me, I believe one of them is like a pro or something. Ok maybe bring him would be a bad idea... :P

I think Jillian's is starting to sound like a pretty good idea for either Friday or Saturday night.  Bowling, pool, drinks, cookies...  That should work for must of us, I'm sure.  I know that a couple fellas like Brian and Ed may only be in town for Friday night, so that may be the way to go.  Anyone have a scheduling conflict with that night?

So we'll tentatively plan on Jillian's for Friday night (and maybe Saturday too if it's happenin').  Maybe some more Hooters somewhere along the way too, if you're lucky.  :P
