Pittsburgh RV Show at David L. Lawrence CC; Arsenal Bowl Offers All-You-Can Bowl (Mon., 1/8/18)
1) Would you like to travel more, but fret about leaving the comforts of home? Wouldn’t it be great if you could transport your house to the locales you would like to travel to? Well, with an RV (recreational vehicle) you can travel with an albeit smaller version of your house. Where can I see these small mobile houses you ask—at the Pittsburgh RV Show. There you’ll be able to see hundreds of different types and sizes of RV’s. In purchasing your own new or used RV you’re well on your way to staying in a beautiful serene setting or even overnighting in the parking lot of a Walmart. This writer’s mom and dad rented a Winnebago when he was 15 for a family trip to Maine and which could have been a sequel to the popular Griswold family Vacation movies. 4 – 9 p.m. Continues through January 14. David L. Lawrence Convention Center, 1000 Fort Duquesne Blvd., Downtown.
2) Arsenal Bowl is a longtime entertainment stalwart of the Lawrenceville entertainment scene. It’s been in business since 1938. We’ve all heard of “all-you-can-eat restaurant” specials. At Arsenal Bowl, they have all-you-can-bowl specials during certain time periods every day of the week except Tuesdays. During Rock and Bowl (Wednesday night, 9 p.m. – midnight), you get all-you-can-bowl and a live band on the lanes for $8 (no, if you bowl, you won’t be able to hit them with your ball). For Top Shelf Saturday Night (9 p.m. – midnight), the bowling alley brings in a DJ. You can bowl all you desire for $10.95, plus there’s $1 off top-shelf liquors. The kitchen offers munchies, burgers, and pizza. Monday-Thursday: noon – midnight. Friday: noon – 2:00 a.m. Saturday: 11 a.m. – 2 a.m. Sunday: 11 a.m. – midnight. 4310 Butler St., in the heart of “the Ville,” Lawrenceville. (RH)
