Bowling & Organic Food


How cool is this? MAN FERTILITY and I went to the Bryant Lake Bowl in Minneapolis, where we bowled and ate organic and sustainable food. I also had my best game, ever (over 150!), at least since bowling class (yes, this was part of our phys ed curriculum in Hibbing) in high school.

God how I wish we had something like this in Providence. It's an honest-to-goodness old-time (tyme?) bowling alley, even has lanes w/bumpers for the kiddies. And it's always so relaxing to eat great food and not have to worry about MSG, transfats, etc. They had artisanal cheese from Wisconsin, bison burgers, organic chicken, and the menu was sustainable and local to a large degree as well. At places like these it's also easy for me to stick to my gluten-free, dairy-free diet (of course there's the Faustian temptation of the cheese plate!!!) since it's not the usual everything-breaded-and-covered-in-liquid-cheese and fried in transfats.

There's even a little theater in the back, and is one of the sites for the annual Fringe Festival. Looked like that documentary about the Pixies was playing.

Anyway, what a cool space where little kids can bowl en famille while the pierced and tattoed attend the theatre, a fundraiser for the local Greenway biking association was held, and we all ate food that was good for us and good for the environment.

Thanks to Gramma/Halmoni, we had a relaxing date night--first one in a looooong time.
