What’s more punk than a mohawk, leather jacket and self-styled knuckle tattoos? Bowling. Embrace Chicago’s punk history with today’s Swoop: $12 for one hour of bowling with shoe rental for up to six people from Fireside Bowl (up to a $48 value).
For a taste of real Chicago, steer clear of the crowds at Navy Pier, Millenium Park and the Magnificent Mile and head to Fireside Bowl. Established in the 1940s, Fireside Bowl is truly part of Chicago history. Throughout the 90s, the bowling alley was host to a variety of iconic punk music concerts including Rise Against, Youth Brigade and Lawrence Arms. Fireside has also been mentioned in the song “Goodbye Forever” by Alkaline Trio, and it was even featured in the 2006 movie “The Break-Up” starring Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn. Oh yeah, and it’s a bowling alley too. The recently renovated alley will give you and up to six friends friends all the bowling action you can handle. When you finish lugging around that bowling ball, head to the vintage lounge with matching full bar cool off with a drink and a game of pool. Fireside Bowl has always been so much more than just your average bowling alley. Swoop in on today’s deal and see what bowling should look like.
