Nothing will ever replace the experience of visiting your local tavern and draining a couple cold ones with a few bros.  You get drunk, hit on women, pee on the seat and fall face down in an alley for a good night’s rest.  Or if you keep your wits about you, which is another way to say “don’t get wasted”, you’ll probably find a beautiful babe to take home.  But alas, you’ll still need to seal the proverbial deal once you’re back at the pad.  What’s a fine gent like yourself to do?  Show off your bowling skills using this 8-foot Tavern Bowling game, but of course.

It’s based on the original Shuffle Alley game, which apparently was popularized in the 1950s.  Abstaining from a double vision (hopefully beer goggles as well) is the first objective.  Next objective, slide the chromed steel puck down the game’s waxed formica lane to strike ten 10 1/4″-tall pins.  You can choose from a variety of bowling games – there is even one that dims the lights for blind bowling.   A 27-inch LCD with a 1600×900 resolution keeps tabs on the score, while commentary from PBA Champion Parker Bohn III blasts over the two 30-watt and one 100-watt speaker.

Price to own?  Just a mere $6,000.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
