If you're from the San Gabriel Valley and think of Santa Anita, the Santa Anita Racetrack comes to mind with its grandstand, flags, and the like. Well, this marquee for the Santa Anita Bowl maintains this feel. Unfortunately, the bowling was razed over last year.

Hmm... what's this sign by the side of the road with the multicolored starbursts? Oh, it's Premiere Lanes, with a still good lookin' sign after all these years.


UPDATE 05/08 : The Premiere Lanes in Santa Fe Springs closed it doors for good on May 18th, 2008.  The bowling center lost its land lease and will be torn down. Many thanks to Lloyd Stone for update. 05-08

UPDATE 06/10 : Premiere Lanes is now in the process of being demolished. The sign has been designated as a historical landmark. Many thanks to Alex Mochizuki and Sal Garcia for update. 06-10

Here's a good lookin' A-frame type bowling alley. The joint is a bit run down but at least its still open.


UPDATE : The Clark Bowl is now closed. Thanks to Andre Eubanks for update.

Long Beach, CA

Java Lanes in Long Beach is another good ten pin alley spot that still displays its Polynesian roots. From the unique sign out front to the building itself, Java Lanes is a pretty cool place.


UPDATE : Java Lanes in Long Beach, CA closed its doors on May 31, 2004. It has been replaced by a town home community. So no where will they go to bowl? It was the last of Long Beach's bowling centers. Many thanks to Rick Medina, former youth director at Java Lanes for update.
