Family time is one of those things that I never seem to get enough of. Family time is more than just being around each other during the day. It is real, carved out time that is meant to bring laughter and memories to those moments that strengthen the bond between parent and child. I always forget the escape that something as simple as bowling can offer! This last weekend I gathered my kids and some of our best friends and we headed out for a night of food, fun and laughter at Willow Lanes AMF bowling alley in Houston.

I had no idea that AMF bowling alleys across the nation offer holiday party packages and more to guests! For years I have viewed bowling as just a game we all go play. But, I was in for a huge surprise when we walked in, package already pre-purchased with just a phone call ahead of time, to reserved lanes, a table set up for all of our yummy food and that catered feeling that every guest should experience.
The Holiday Bash Package that we got included two hours of unlimited games, pizza, chicken fingers, salad and so much more PLUS dessert that the kids went wild over. They brought us food as we bowled and we had our own little set up which made us feel very special. Everyone one of us made comments on how good the food was too!
This was not ‘typical’ bowling alley food that I have been used to on the past. No cardboard pizzas anymore, guys! The food was amazing! The pot-stickers – yes, pot-stickers at a bowling alley – came with a sauce that would rival any Chinese restaurant. It was spicy and perfect for the dish.
But the dessert tray that came out is what really convinced me that AMF is aiming to make every one feel spoiled while bowling. We chose the brownie tray and out came 8 HUGE brownies and fresh strawberries! When was the last time you had fruit at a bowling alley? The brownies were moist and delicious and we devoured them all!
Everything was so good that I almost felt guilty not bringing the leftovers home. I am still thinking of that warm, delicious pizza that was anything but frozen!
As I watched my girls and their friends play frame after frame on our two lanes, plates full of delicious food, smiles spread on everyone’s faces, I realized that this family time won’t be forgotten anytime soon. Both my friend and I were seriously impressed with the presentation, the service and the custom feel to the party for little ole us! We felt it was more than worth it!
As an added bonus, we found out that we could purchase some pins from the games we had bowled to take home! So I bought 2, $5 each was the cost, and we all signed them, commemorating a night of surprises, fun and friendship.
When was the last time you called your local AMF bowling alley and asked about their parties, events and packages? With the holidays here and the hustle and bustle making everyone crazy, take time to spoil your family with a Holiday Bowling package! The time together where you do no work and everyone has a blast will be a dominant memory in their holiday dreams!
