We’re Gonna Score Tonight

February 2, 2010

Last week I was approached to join my friend’s bowling team. It’s been a longtime dream of mine to be on a bowling team and I was pleased to be considered a recruit. Alas, the timing didn’t work out for me to accept this much coveted position. However, I think it may have worked out for the best, as I am CERTAIN my bowling average would have brought the team down… way down. 

This is not the first time bowling has been on my radar lately. I found it fascinating that in December a Prohibition era bowling alley was unearthed in Queens, NY.

And then there’s the work of William Stranger, a CA artist who makes sustainable and eco-friendly furniture using salvaged wood. Stranger Furniture exhibited new work and pieces from Second Growth at Dwell on Design conference last June, including this fabulous bowling alley table.

When I was in Hudson a few months ago, I spotted an antique bowling pin that I was enamored with… and would have purchased were it not $90. Those suckers are not inexpensive so if you get your hands on one, don’t let go! But also, don’t be afraid to dress it up a bit. Aren’t these painted antique pins adorable!?

PS. My favorite bowling scene/song of all time.

    If you were really that bad, your score wouldn’t have counted anyway! Besides, I’m pretty sure greg would give you a run for your money in the lowest score category.

    Oh, and that bowling alley lane is the best! I want it!
