If you were saddened to hear of the impending closure of the best bowling alley/music venue in the city, join the club. Oh Vernon Lanes, we hardly knew ye. For those looking for a perfect evening to say goodbye to the Vernon, look no further. With performances from funk rockers Mike Dirty, reggae trio Lifted, the Jake Parker Band and the bone crushing folk rock of the Vatican Bank, the righteous music will almost drown out the sounds of our hearts breaking. Vernon Lanes is one of the oldest bowling alleys in the country. Play it smart, and go bowl a few games upstairs before enjoying the music. It’s a brilliant combo: great music, good bowling, and a perfect way to escape your family after the holiday.
