HL Does NOLA from A to Z: R is for ROCK ‘N’ BOWLPosted: April 21, 2016
R is for Rock ‘n’ Bowl. So you have only one night remaining on your fun-filled NOLA vacation. You want to go bowling, but you’d also like to hear one of our fabulous local bands. Never fear . . . Rock ‘n’ Bowl is here.
A New Orleans classic for 25 years, Rock ‘n’ Bowl changed locations following Hurricane Katrina in 2005, but nothing at all changed about the Rock ‘n’ Bowl atmosphere. An article on MSN’s travel site sums up the experience:
For bowlers visiting the Crescent City, Rock ‘n’ Bowl throws in plenty of what New Orleans is famous for – food, music and fun living. Relocated after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Rock ‘n’ Bowl brought much-needed recreation to locals and travelers to the devastated city. The alley is modest in size, with 19 lanes. However, the joint is outsized when it comes to lifestyle accoutrements. . . . Plus, bowlers can top off a visit to Rock ‘n’ Bowl with music concerts, especially when zydeco, honky-tonk and blues acts fire things up N’awlins style. The venue’s stage can be seen from every lane, so the bowling can go on during shows. . . . How perfect is that?
And it’s New Orleans, so you know there has to be food, right? So in between the strikes and spares (and the occasional gutter ball) and the featured music act of the night, enjoy a house grind burger, a little boudin douzaine, and some fried bread pudding poboy. (To be totally honest with you, I have no idea what those last two are, but they sound pretty good.) I’m off to lace up my bowling shoes . . . and I’m ready to rock. Only at Rock ‘n’ Bowl in New Orleans.
