Jamaica Plain Travel Guide

If you're of the variety that like to drink & bowl, then be sure to hit the lanes at Milky Way Lounge & Lanes in Jamaica Plain, Mass. They've got the 1950s-style bowling, candlepin, where the ball's a lot smaller and it's a lot harder to hit the pins. But the kitsch factor keeps it fun. Seven lanes are available for the taking, as is a full bar, to better improve your score.
The interior's a bit dim, and walls are even plastered with dusty magazine cut-outs, a la your seventh grade locker door, but the crowd's young and fun, and it's just $25 per lane to bowl for an hour, shoes included. If you're hungry, you get to order snacks from Bella Luna next door, where you can try the surprising dried cranberry and goat cheese white pizza and fresh salads.
