Best Place To Experience A Small Midwestern Town's Nightlife (2008)

PORT AUTHORITY LEISURE TIME BOWLING CENTER

Though bowling is one of those nighttime activities that's so unhip it's hip, you'll rarely find twentysomethings trawling around PORT AUTHORITY LEISURE TIME BOWLING CENTER. Instead, the PALTBC positively screams Friday night in Backwater, Indiana: The crowd is full of the kind of Levi's-and-cheap-T-shirts middle-agers who wouldn't last a minute in Soho, big screen TVs are always sports-attuned, and after a couple of dirt-cheap pitchers of Bud you'll wax nostalgic for the Slayer hit playing on the juke.
