Bowling was taken to a new level Saturday night - away from bored teenagers and obsessive rollers with names like “The Dude” – when Cincinnati Yelp filled Star Lanes on the Levee for some bites, booze and bowling!
The mood-lit, neon-glowing area was a grand place for anyone to party. Yelpers were given the special back VIP area, which included a patio, multiple pool tables, our own personal bar and, of course, four lanes of rocking bowling.
Forty people were able to play in total (ten per lane), creating some fierce competition amongst rollers. Winners of each game took home the coveted tiny Yelp trophy, complete with a “People Love Us on Yelp” mini-sticker. A worthy prize for any victorious pin-destroying champion.
Working this hard would build up an appetite in anyone, and we had all that covered. Star Lanes served up monstrous mouth-watering munchies, including pizza, mini-burgers, fries, pot stickers, chicken skewers and coconut shrimp. But it was the delicious fried mac & cheese bites that knocked everyone down! As Becky R put it, “I wasn't sure how the food was going to be, but I was blown away by the delicious items we were able to enjoy! Mmmmm omnomnomnom.”
Dos Lunas Tequila and Budweiser took care of quenching everyone’s thirst with a selection of beers and signature drinks including a Pomegranate Margarita, Rested Ginger and the star of the evening: the Yelp-A-Rita, which was made with Dos Lunas Silver Tequila, Taste of Florida Margarita Mix, fresh lime and … Bud Light Lime? Indeed! “It was fabulous. You would really think tequila and Bud Light wouldn’t go together, but they so do!” Rachel G declared. The way they were quickly being made and downed, we’re not surprised at all.
But don’t just take our word on the night’s awesomeness, you can read all the reviews right here. You can also check out the other awesome pics by photographer extraordinaire Angie Livesay on the Official Yelp Flickr page.
Thanks for a fantastic night and we hope you all struck out (in the best way possible!)
