Red Pin Bowling at Albany Bowl

Seeing red after missing that 7-10 split? It may be your chance to win a free game. Albany Bowl has gone to red pin bowling mid-week, with a perk sure to attract the attention of any avid roller. Mixed into the multitude of white pins are a handful of red-colored pins. If your head pin turns up blushing red, alert the staff, and they’ll announce overhead that red pin bowling is in play. If you can handle the pressure and knock down all ten pins, you’ll have won yourself a free game and the admiration of your fellow bowlers. Of course, the red pin doesn’t show up that often and may not be the head pin when it does, and it may not make things easier knowing that the spotlight is shining on you. But what’s the worst that can happen? Let’s say you leave a pin standing and the parade moves on. People may look, shake their heads, and walk away. And then you will be a little red yourself.
