Austin's Bowling Alley Food More Than Abides
Local culinary kingpins endure
Food Story  May 3, 2018, by Beth Sullivan
"...Waiting in line at a dingy bowling alley concession stand for reheated Red Baron pizza may hold its nostalgic value, but rarely was the food ever so tasty that you could forget you were wearing someone else's sweaty shoes. For Brandon Rascoe, co-owner and chef of Lebowski's Grill (with locations at Highland Lanes and Westgate Lanes), it's his mission to prove otherwise...."

Film Review  December 8, 2000, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...As the girls cross the Charles River and become involved in the life of their soon-to-be-married brother and his somewhat snooty wife, the movie takes on a fish-out-of-water slant. Inevitable conflicts arise from the collision between bowling alley and Ivy League cultures..."

Beyond the Clouds

When the opportunity to buy into the reopening of a neighborhood bowling alley presents itself (it is, after all, a way for him to get out from under the city's grimy streets and off of those crimson Con Ed trucks), he finds himself short of the necessary cash and decides to find the perfect guy -- Mr..."

10 Pins and a Dream
The Alamo Drafthouse empire expands to include bowling, karaoke, and cocktails
Screens Story  June 12, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...Incorporating a bowling alley, with the actual Fifties-era lanes bought from legendary New Orleans bowler nirvana Rock 'n' Bowl, private karaoke rooms, a cafe, a bar, and oh so much more, the Palace, overseen by longtime Alamo architect Richard Weiss, with interior design by Joel Mozersky (Uchi, the Belmont), is a natural, fittingly organic outgrowth of both the Alamo brand and the Drafthouse's South Lamar location, specifically. And if you've been to just about any Friday or Saturday evening screenings there lately, then you've most likely already experienced the serpentine waiting lines that were the first inspiration for an expanded Alamo South Austin...."

How the legendary art collective beat the world and kept its soul
Film Review  November 30, 2018, by Josh Kupecki
"...That becomes the main friction of the second half of the film, because anytime someone wants to exert even a modicum of mild control upon a collective, intensely artistic group, the bristling and resentment begins. But Di Ianni, along with key producer David Loughridge, keep pushing for a permanent space, and an abandoned bowling alley looked promising..."
