Koz's Mini Bowl

Oct. 27 Update:  We're officially confirmed for November 15 from 730pm - 930pm for two lanes.  I went over to pay the deposit just now, and snapped a few photos as well.  See you all there!  

*****

Oct. 21 Update: Opened the RSVP list up to 14 to account for the natural ebb and flow of people's schedules changing.  We'll still look to fill 10 spots at the alley, and if by some stroke of pure luck, we get all 14 people to show up, I'm sure we can figure out a way to make lane time equitable to all.

*****

Yes, we played table tennis at some point at SPIN. I'm sure eventually we may do mini golf. But while we're at it, let's do some mini bowling, or duck pin bowling, as they say! Small pins. Small lanes. Small ballz (har har har).

I've made a tentative reservation with Koz's (http://www.kozsminibowl.com/) for Friday, November 15th between 730pm and 930pm (post work, woo hoo!) for TWO lanes (yes, just TWO) that will accommodate up to 10 people. The price breakdown is as follows:

- Each game is 3$ (you don't need to wear special shoes)
- Please tip the HUMAN pinsetters 2$ per game, either via cash money, or I'm sure they take beer as well as tips.
- Total expected cost per person is 15$ for the evening + what you drink (pitchers of PBR at 8$ at this place)

I'll take care of the deposit (since I plan on getting it back that evening) of 50$. We're not asking you to prepay for this event - instead, if you say you're going to come, PLEASE show up so that you can take advantage of this unique Milwaukee experience.

As a very minor footnote, be aware that while no one in this group would try to subject each other to places that are intentionally "unsafe", Koz's is textbook blue collar/divey/unironically hipster by nature. If you're expecting something along the franchise lines 10pin or Lucky Strike where you can bowl and drink martinis and "look pretty" wearing [insert your favorite boutique brand], this will NOT be the place you want to be. As matter of fact, if I showed up wearing my non-existent tight jeans with some popped collared shirt with an animal/print/logo on the left chest, I would EXPECT a few comments directed my way.

Be casual, this is not a place to see and be seen. It's a place to let loose, drink some PBR, put some quarters in the jukebox, play pool/darts, and throw some little tiny balls around at pins.

    Haha. Shada and I just saw each other doing the walk of shame (or absentmindedness) at Kozs. Both left our credit cards there.

    It is safe to say the bar looks like a hole in the wall from the outside. Cool place inside!

    See you all tomorrow at 7:30pm; update your RSVPs if you know you can't make it. For those of you who may not be familiar with the area or the venue, it's literally at the NE corner of 7th and Becher. If you drive by a blue house, by golly that's it. http://goo.gl/maps/sEHyh

    I'll post my phone number tomorrow for those of you who find yourself lost.

    Wee wee wah weeee. If you RSVPED 'Yes' and know that your schedule will change by Friday, i.e., you won't be able to make it - please update accordingly so that we can maximize our time and number of people going that night. This should be a super duper fun event!
