    Xtreme Bowling!

    by msbrandysue Written Jun 30, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Who doesn't like to have a bit of fun while visiting? You need to plan an hour or two of bowling! Up in Lewisville, north of downtown, there is a fun center that has always exeeded my expectations. It is the local AMF Bowling Lanes.

    One of the best parts? They have a full bar!!! You can see how nice (and big) the drinks are in my pictures! They also have food, arcade, pool tables, and a mini sports bar-type area.

    When is the best time to come?? During Xtreme (Cosmic/Midnight) Bowling! They usually have it later (10pm+) on weekend nights. They turn down the lights, have neon pins, and jam some music. It is a blast with friends.

    They have great, extended hours so you can catch a game or two at any hour :) If you do decide to go on a week night please call in advance because they do have leagues that will take up most lanes. Great family idea!

    Monday/Tuesday 1pm-12am
    Wednesday/Thursday 9am-12am
    Friday/Saturday 9am-2am (yes, that's right 2am!)
    Sunday 9am-11pm

    Equipment: You can rent everything here, but feel free to bring you own. Of course, if their pro shop is open you could buy your own ball, shoes or bag there!

    Address: 1398 W. Main St.

    Directions: Go North of I-35E. Exit Flower Mound/Main St. Go West about 2 miles.

    Phone: (972) 436-6575

    FC Dallas Pro Soccer

    Dallas has its own pro soccer team called FC Dallas. They used to play at the Cotton Bowl in Fair Park. Now, they have their own stadium in in Frisco (suburb north of Dallas.) The league seems to be more stable these days...the crowds still aren't that huge but they're getting bigger...and the level of play probably isn't up to par with European futbol...but they're trying. Beckham playing in LA might help the league...bringing the Cosmos back to New York would be another good idea. FC Dallas has some enthusiastic fans that play drums, sing, and set off smoke bombs during the games...sometimes they're more entertaining than the games.

    Equipment: Bring a camera, but leave your glove. New netting prevents pucks from flying into the stands. Probably safer, but fewer souvenir pucks.

    Address: American Airlines Center - 2500 Victory Ave.

    Directions: Near the West End in Dallas
