Stop by La Puente Lanes for a few games of bowling. Shoot some pool or play a few video games while your there.
Unfortunately, La Puente Lanes is no longer a destination for ten pin alley thrill seekers as it was razed over in 2006. 12-06

Looking for a good place for a ten pin game or two while spending some time in Pasadena? For decades, the Bahama Lanes has entertained folks looking for a good place to bowl a few games and hang out, not to mention being home to many a bowling league.
After closing in November, owner AMF Bowling Inc. remade the Bahama Lanes into the 300 Pasadena, which proclaims itself as a trendy club, hot new bistro, and upscale sports bar rolled into one. The 300 opened up on May 14, 2009. See this Pasadena Star-Newsarticle for more information. 05-09
