Work in the adminstrative offices and need to host a holiday party? We would love to have you celebrate with us.

We have several specials already put in place for anyone with a CAL I.D. Join us on a Monday or Tuesday night after 8 pm and bowl for only $1.50 per person, per game (shoes not included). Or you could call and reserve space for a group of 10 or more on Thursday night and get 2 games and shoe rental for only $8 per person.
