Back in Time
Montrose is a city just west of Pasadena and has a thriving but small downtown strip on Honolulu Avenue. Last Saturday was the second time my brother rented the bowling alley for my niece's 9th birthday party. Eight lanes (I bowled the 2 rightmost and they both seem to have a right-leaning bias) was available to us for a couple hours -- which in spite of having to share with about 25 other kids, was still pretty fun. No scoring, no bowling shoes, no pressure to pick up spares, bumpers-up, pizza, lemonade but my favorite memory of all, was the velvet Elvis poster on the wall just above the shoe rental booth. Montrose Bowl, 100% fun.
