  2. West Lanes - Omaha, Nebraska

    West Lanes are a family owned enterprise, and owner Mike Pirruccello is very proud of the alley and its history. His family purchased the building and converted the old bomb shelter in the 1950’s. The building was as tough as the people it housed, as it stared down a tornado and emerged unscathed. At one point West Lanes was the talk of the town, as a family photo album shows the Mayor of Omaha, with constituents dressed to the nines, beaming while cutting the ribbon. While times have changed, and bowling isn’t in it’s heyday, West Lanes remains popular in Omaha.

  3. Strike and Spare Lanes - Lexington, Nebraska

    The epitome of a wholesome, modest, Midwestern town is conveniently located across the street from the local high school. You can easily summon visions of generations of Lexington folks bowling in an alley that hasn’t changed much in the past 36 years. Strike and Spare Lanes depends not only on high schoolers dropping in on a Friday night, but also on league bowling. The scoring system is from 1984, the interior doesn’t look to have changed since then, but it’s all you need to have a cold beer and play a few games. It’s currently for sale, but according to owner Brad Larsen, there isn’t much interest from the corporate beasts. It seems to be fine with Brad; he’d probably miss it if he sold the place anyway.

    Lexington is the kind of town people like to refer to as Main Street and wear the title as a badge of honor. Most people don’t concern themselves with IPOs or IPAs, and they’d just as soon keep it that way. The Walmart is the town’s social hub and the Tyson chicken plant is the engine that drives the city. While Lexington was hit hard by the recession, the Strike and Spare survived while many alleys across the country did not. Jobs are slowly coming back and Brad is hoping the bowlers as well. 

  4. A few weeks ago I hit the road with my good friend Al to start work on a project photographing bowling alleys across America. The Midwest felt like a good place for us to start.

    Over the next few weeks we’ll be sharing images and stories about the places we went, what we saw and who we met.

    Thanks for checking them out!
