Team Here We Go Again took to the streets of Portland for another adventure together: BOWLING NIGHT! With a fierce combo of extremely amateur bowlers (lowers head, coughs), complete rookies and others still who grew up doing it all the time, our two teams of four were in for a hilarious night. We seemed to pick the perfect night to be indoors, too, as it was the first night of heavy rain in quite some time.
We also may have picked the perfect night of the week to go to Grand Central, as Soul Night kicked off at 8 o’clock sharp. Every big screen at the end of the lanes promptly switched from advertisements to classic soul jam music videos, and the lights dimmed to reveal a giant disco ball twinkling up above.
All of us being fashion lovers, we had to drop jaws at our favorite video of the night: No Parking (on the Dance Floor) by Midnight Star, an early Eighties video with iconic moves, classic cars and a crowd of smooth operators. With chambray sport jackets, belted sweaters, high-waisted pants and vivid color-blocked apparel, we hinted at a theme night next time around.
Some highlights from the night:
1) Square up your form to center the ball’s path
2) Sometimes, saying “Strike” under your breath just might get you a lucky roll
3) (Other times, nice try, but no)
4) Pizza is the way to our hearts
5) Emily (not pictured, as she left a bit early) had words of wisdom as a former bowling camp attendee
6) Amanda-Jean won both games with some lean, mean form
7) Bowling shoes are actually pretty comfortable; I almost walked out without my new boots, EEP!
8) Terra the “Terror” had an endless list of names for the combinations of pins, aka “Vampire Teeth”
9) Our stylin’ management trio all wore matching denim jackets: Great minds dress alike…
10) Our staff is one awesome group of team players, in and out of a bowling alley 🙂
So far our crew has mastered roller-skating at Oaks Park, bowling at Grand Central, chowing down Peruvian food at Andina…so tell us ladies, where should be our next spot to paint the town green? Roller Derby, anyone?
