Bowling is one of those activities that feels like it should be free, but always ends up costing more than you bargained for. But not at Mahall's.

"We can't afford to do anything," Mahall explains. But in a bowling alley, that's a blessing. No light shows, no blaring pop music, and -- most important -- no automatic scoring machines. No, this throwback has everything you need and nothing you don't.
