Omnivore - What's 'superglam' about Atlanta?

Bowling alle

A Silicon Valley travel writer files a story from Atlanta's Ten Pin Alley:

This is the reinvention of one of America's most kitschy, quietly enduring pastimes. Laverne and Shirley have slipped out the back door, making way for superglam alleys where bowling sometimes seems besides the point.

Travelers have now added designer bowling alleys to the must-do list, much like "it" boutique hotels, chic restaurants and after-hours joints.

"The whole idea here is to give locals and tourists an alternative to the club, a place they can relax and let off some steam," says Lonnie Moore of the Dolce Group, which owns the 12-lane Ten Pin Alley at Atlanta's Atlantic Station complex.
