According to the buzz about town, bowling is on the rise. So when The Ballroom, a brand new alley in downtown Toronto, invited Flare to come knock down a few pins, we took on the challenge wholeheartedly. No really – it got intense.
Turns out bowling has evolved from late night Rock ‘n Bowl at the local lanes. The Ballroom is a chic space with exposed brick, leather couches, and inventive lighting concepts that go far behind fluorescent. In other words, it’s a great alternative to the usual Saturday night dinner, especially if your friends are up for some friendly competition.
And competitive we were! While Editor-in-Chief Lisa Tant joked that she’d been lifting weights in preparation, her strike on the first go got a few of us wondering whether it was really a joke. Some “first-timers” also pulled in exceptional scores, while certain seasoned bowlers who’d talked up their game (ahem, me) fell slightly short.
All fun and games – and no one lost a nail (except for Art Director Tanya Watt, but she was a good sport about it)! Once Chanel makes bowling shoes, we may even form our own fashionable league.
