Bowling for Deities, Sat., May 3, Noon, Mpls

No RSVP limit this time, but a warning to those who show up late: you may not be able to bowl with the group if our lanes are filled and an adjacent one is not available.

It's now official: our bowling Meetup has found the right hook, strikes the right note, and spares no puns. Judging by the great time everyone has whenever we do it, Bowling for Deities is a MNA Meetup favorite. Each bowler chooses the god or goddess of his or her choice, appeals to said imaginary being, and finds out whether their particular deity rewards them with the best score. You can be any god or goddess you like, but must be specific ("god" is just too vague).

Our venue is Memory Lanes, a fun and funky bowling haven in the heart of Minneapolis. Open bowling goes until 3 p.m. and I expect we'll get two or three games in before retiring to the fabulous Flashback Cafe and Cocktail Lounge for a late lunch. Cost is $5 per game, $3 for shoe rental. For more bowling info:

    Odin ruled the day, with a strong showing by Osiris. The gods favored us with a third-game-for-$1 special, and a good time was had by all. Huzzah!

    Once again, since I am a terrible bowler, have a great big belly, and love to laugh, I chose the Japanese god Hotei. Hotei is one of the 7 Japanese Shinto gods of luck (Shichi Fukujin), depicted with a great belly. He is the god of happiness, laughter, and the wisdom of contentment. :)

      I'm appealing to a different god next time: this one cursed me with a killer migraine that prevents me from bowling in his name :(

    Brought to you by the Encyclopedia of Gods (that sits quietly in my bathroom).
    Quat: Creator God. As with many Polynesian deities, this god is depicted as being inactive, sitting around all day doing nothing. Sound familiar?

    Since I've been monopolizing Thor, this time I'll go with Crom, the god of Conan from Robert E. Howard's stories. "What use to call on him? Little he cares if men live or die."

    Going with Odin again, BTW.

      Sticking with Osiris; we've got the "O's" covered.
