THE PREFUNK: Rock n' Glow

BRING ON THE WEEKEND >>>

Well, O. M. G.  The workweek is drawing to a close, and not only is the weekend upon us - but it's of the THREE-DAY variety! That's cooler than the other side of the pillow, as they say; the bee's knees (so to speak). It's groovy, bodacious, spectacular, and downright neat.

Without further ado, here's this week's installment of The Prefunk - a weekend event primer for you and your liver (with a complimentary picture of an alcoholic household pet thrown in for good measure).

Rock n' Glow

Fridays and Saturdays at Chalet Bowl

I don't exactly recall when bowling got tired, got lame, got boring - but it must have. The kids must have been choosing video games, Facebook and text messages over an 11-pound ball and a stale pair of shoes, and someone at the top of bowling's corporate ladder must have decided some re-branding was in order.

How else do you explain the Rock n' Glow bowling movement? At bowling alleys all over the country Friday and Saturday nights are now spicing it up to draw in the younger crowd.

True, it's not always called Rock n' Glow - that's just what Tacoma's Chalet Bowl calls it every Friday and Saturday night - but the features are usually the same. The lights are turned off. A black light is cued. Jams are pumped. And good times are had by all.

Chalet Bowl's Rock n' Glow nights are particularly cool, seeing as Proctor's bowling gem is one of the quaintest bowling alleys you'll find anywhere, and you don't have to travel to the 'burbs to take part - just North Tacoma. In fact, Rock n' Glow is so popular reservations are highly recommended. Also, there's a laser. Just sayin'.

PREFUNK: How should one prime their mind and body for the magic that is Chalet Bowl's Rock n' Glow? That's a tough question to answer, and it no doubt depends on the person in question. That said, free cheese samples from Met Market are never a bad start to any evening. And maybe grab some sparkling water, too. Or a kombucha. You're in the North End, after all. Might as well fit in. 

See you next week.
