Bowling: tried and true. Football: America’s most popular sport. Horseshoes: everyone’s favorite lawn game (since they outlawed jarts). And now, from the city that bestowed upon the world such integral inventions as the automobile, Vernors and Coney dogs, comes another innovation, arguably just as important: fowling.
Equal parts bowling, football, and horseshoes, fowling is a Detroit original. Detroit’s Fowling Warehouse was founded in 2010 on the city’s east side. Due to safety concerns related to its location in a rough part of town, the Warehouse has moved to a new space in Hamtramck, featuring a whopping 34,000sqft of entertainment pleasure, 20 lanes, two bars, big screen TVs, and a stage.
Even if you don't yet understand fowling, know that this is exciting news. However, Thrillist met with fowling originator, Chris Hutt, to ensure you have no excuse for not understanding fowling.
