While Brian Wilson overhypes Lucky Strike Lanes, and Daly City mourns the loss of Serra Bowl, we'll be over here quietly warming up to bowl a few frames at Mission Bowling Club, the other bowling alley opening in San Francisco this month. According to MBC co-owner Sommer Peterson, the six-lane bowling and boozing spot on 17th Street will open to the general public next Monday, March 26th at 6 p.m.
Aside from the additional bowling lanes, Mission Bowling Club boasts a generous patio for outdoor drinking when the weather is too nice for indoor activities. And as far as the menu goes, Mission Street Food/Commonwealth co-founder Anthony Myint has lined up a whole range of fresh bowling alley comfort fare for hungry rollers to knock down. Eater has a look at the full menu here. [PDF Warning]
For the first week or so of operation the alley's restaurant and bowling lanes will only be open for nighttime enjoyment from 6 - 11 p.m., but they'll pick up normal hours of operation starting in April. For now, it's a 21+ affair, but family-friendly bowling is promised for the daytime hours on weekends.
