I really love Pinstripes for families because it serves up plenty of fun for the kiddos but has an atmosphere and food that parents will love. It is not often that you get the best of both worlds. I mean, a clean bowling alley where parents can sip wine from a large selection--perfect! Besides bowling, Pinstripes has bocce, so plenty of opportunity for families to bond while engaging in friendly competition!
Does this look like the bar at your normal bowling alley?
Holidays are about spending time so why not make a visit to a place that is all about families getting together and having a great time! Pinstripes does have a couple of events coming up for Halloween and Thanksgiving that may be fun for your family. Such a great time of year for families!
Having a Halloween Ball at Pinstripes!
All of the Chicago area Pinstripes will have trick-or-treating on Halloween from 10AM-9PM. Plus, the festivities will include a Halloween Costume Contest at each location at 8PM. Prizes include a party for eight guests ($500 value) for first place winners, a party for four guests ($250 value) for second place winners and a $25 Pinstripes gift certificate for third place winners. Time to put together your best BOO!
Participate in the 4th Annual Turkey Bowl
This November, bowlers have the opportunity to compete in the 4th Annual Turkey Bowl. Any bowler that bowls a "turkey"--three strikes in a row--will win a complimentary turkey platter available during November including freshly carved turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and Brussel sprouts. Nom, nom! Just a fun little challenge for turkey month! Gobble, gobble!
Burn off that Turkey with Bowling on Thanksgiving
When we were younger, we would go bowling on Thanksgiving. A great family memory! Fortunately, Pinstripes will be open on Thanksgiving (November 27) for bowling and turkey dinner (or other menu options if you are turkey-ed out)! Bowling and bocce will be available 10AM-5PM and dining will be available 11:30AM-3:00PM. Advanced reservations are recommended for both dining and bowling. What a blast for the fam!
