Here from LA to bowl you over

An LA sports franchise has come to DFW, and it's not the Rams, nor the Raiders! Meet Lucky Strike Lanes and Lounge: the upscale bowling alley chain that serves as a nationwide Lebowski Fest host, bringing N TX a ball-'n-pin experience bolstered by a 40ft island bar, a garage-doored upstairs patio beer garden, 30 hi-defs, and a suite with four private lanes, something Kelsey Grammer thought he had when he flipped his Viper. The chow goes well above-and-beyond, with apps like chicken confit turnovers, grilled cheese sliders w/ jalapeno aioli, and a grilled apple & brie quesadilla with mustard-maple dressing and bacon, putting you within six degrees of Cardiology Consultants of Texas. Furthering Lucky's "this is also a real restaurant" cred are mains like beef short ribs simmered in tomato au jus and served with Parmesan bread pudding, and a deconstructed chicken pot pie, definitely not what Judd Nelson's dad was telling his mom to shut up and go fix.

Because bowling without booze is idiocy, they're currently putting together a cocktail list, and have already set up taps ranging from international standbys Guinness and Bass to local faves like Rahr's Blonde and Ugly Pug...oh, wait, that's Al Davis!
