I grew up in a bowling alley. My step-dad was the manager of the bar and we spent a lot of time there. I remember being in my first bowling league when I was just 5 years old. If you are local to Orlando and a fan of the lanes, here is some interesting news:
Patrick Lyons, the King of Boston’s nightlife scene, is bringing his upscale bowling entertainment venue, KINGS, to Orlando. Lyons, along with Robert and Tricia Earl, announced today that they are hosting BOWL-ERINA, a night of fun and friends, to celebrate the grand opening of KINGS with all proceeds from the evening benefiting the Orlando Ballet.
KINGS, “A Classy Bowling Joint,” boasts an authentic 60’s midcentury feeling and design, combined with craft beers, cocktails, great food, music and games including 22 lanes, billiards, shuffle board and bocce all housed within a 30,000-square-foot space. With three wildly popular outlets in the greater Boston area, KINGS is ready to introduce upscale bowling to Orlando at the new “I-Drive Live” project.
For the grand opening party, guests will be greeted by klieg lights and red carpet and once inside will enjoy proprietary cocktails—including adult ices, champagne, KINGS culinary team’s special selection of goodies from the kitchen, and lots of fun, games and surprises. Live music will be provided by Central Florida favorite, Rat Pack Band and DJ Carl Christy. Everything—food, drink, live music, bowling shoes, games—is included in the ticket price. From ice sculpture installations, and nostalgic soda and candy stations, no detail has been overlooked for what promises to drive a huge crowd in support of the Orlando Ballet, the venerable organization that will celebrate its 40th anniversary next season. KINGS is generously hosting the entire event so all of the proceeds from the evening will benefit the Orlando Ballet.
Ticket price for BOWL-ERINA is $65 per person and includes food, drink, games, entertainment and great music—a superb night out—and every dollar raised will go directly to the Orlando Ballet. To attend BOWL-ERINA you must be 21 yrs. of age or older.
