The Lanes: Bowl & Bistro

January 26, 2013

Looking for something to do on a cold winter day, or maybe it’s just rainy?- Look no further!  The Mashpee Commons has a new venue called The Lanes, it is a bistro and bowling alley in one!  During the day children are welcome, however after 9pm The Lanes turns into a 21+ venue, offering alcohol and even musical entertainment!  They offer wines, beers and mixed drinks which is nice for the adults who want to enjoy a casual drink while bowling.  I went early in the evening with friends and although their were many adults who were drinking, it was no issue for the folks with kids there.  The management has done a great job keeping up with that no doubt.  When you walk in there is a bar and dining area where you can also wait to bowl.  They have large flat screen TV’s showing the waitlist for bowling so you can keep up with your placement.  If it’s quiet then no worries there will be no wait.  Up a few stairs is the bowling alley and more tables to wait or eat at.  They offer a good amount of lanes, I think maybe 10.  They can put bumpers up for the kids as well.  The menu seems to have a nice variety to it, but definitely has options coinciding with the “bistro” aspect of the name.  I tried their fried pickles which were great, and ended with their mini cannoli’s that were just the right size to share and quench my sweet tooth!  This place seems to have it all, take a look at their website for more information:

Good Afternoon All,

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends!  I just enjoyed a wonderful dinner full of turkey and delicious desserts with my family.  Surprisingly the resort is a little over half full!  Many guests are visting family in the area, and some are just vacationing during the holiday.  For those that are enjoying the holiday here there are some restaurants open for the holiday serving traditional Thanksgiving dishes; The Coonamessett Inn, The Casino Wharf F/X, The Nimrod and Oysters Too to name a few.
