Default Remember that adjacent bowling alley?

I know this was touched on briefly as a tangent to another topic, but does anybody have information on the bowling alley that used to be on the current NInfa's site? I vaguely remember my Mom taking me there as a kid in the mid-70s when she was in a league. I seem to recall it has this enclosed kind of eatery or bar in the middle with lanes on opposite sides of the building. Quite different than most lanes these days. It was very BIG LEBOWSKI! Anybody who has any info has a White Russian coming their way. (inside joke).

I do remember the bowling alley, but can't recall even the name of it. Wish I did, though, 'cause I love white russians.

Default Great Southwest Lanes

The bowling alley was named Great Southwest Lanes and I remember reading they served a great breakfast in their coffee shop.
