Lace up your shoes and head out to Tokay Bowl in Lodi, and check out the unique marquee while you're at it.

Well, it seems like most of the unique sights along the road have disappeared due to what some define as "progress". Don't know about that, other than the fact that one of the more unique bowling alley signs has faded to a memory. The place now sits empty, and has been for the last couple of years.

The Valley Center Bowl in Salinas, CA is an old bowling alley that's still open for business along the main drag in town. A good community hang-out for fun and a few games of ten pin bowling, both by day and by night.





UPDATE 09/08 : The Valley Center Bowl features neon lettering on the side of the building as it opens its doors for those looking for a few games of bowling. 09-08
