AMF's Western Lanes, the south city bowling alley on Bingham just east of Gravois, is closing! This is appalling. It's the last full-sized bowling alley left in Saint Louis proper. With $1 bowling nights and its storied history, it was a huge draw for young and old. Unfortunately, it drew young and old willing to seek it out, and in dispersed St. Louis, that often does not seem to be enough people to keep anything but a few weblogs going.
Alas. If you went there this last summer and saw a guy wearing a gold bowtie and suit and a gal wearing a vintage dress, that was us. We did our part to help Western. Did you?

It's the last roundup at Western Lanes
