I am looking for some good lanes, I suck but would like to limit the level of suck to my skill, A fantastic bar and food area is a big plus. I need to get out and have some fun with the wife, kinda get back to our younger years. nostalgia date if you will..
DUDE!!! Go to the Memorrial Union at ASU. They don't serve alcohol (if you're bold and not a sloppy/annoying/violent drunk you can float a cup in), but they aren't too busy, they are CHEAP and you just need a driver's license to use it. They also have billiard and a huuuuge video game arcade. It's almost retro, because the basement has all these restaurants, if you go past the billiard room, so it's like being at a mall circa 1985.
Cotton Bowl Lanes in Casa Grande is probably closer to anything you would in Phoenix. Its a smaller alley with 12 lanes. The bar is deceptively loaded with various beers and drink selections for as small as it is, however they don't have much on options for food.
