Last summer, we named Jupiter Lanes “Best Bowling and Beer” and wrote the following:
Forget about those impersonal bowling megaplexes with more than 100 lanes. Jupiter has 24, making it one of the smallest, homiest, and oldest — the place opened in ’57 — bowling alleys around. Bumper bowling was invented here, and, cooler still, if you go on a Thursday evening, you’ll pay a $5 cover, $1 for shoes, $1 per game, and $1 for a 10-ounce beer. And if you order a pitcher, it comes with a frozen core that keeps it cold till you drain it. 11336 Jupiter Rd. 214-328-3266.
Then Jupiter promptly closed. Sadness ruled the land. Today, though, all FBvians can rejoice. For Jupiter is reopening this week. Hosanna!
