Taking a couple of nephews /home.asp?loc=300austin">bowling last month cost nearly $100 (they serve dinner at the alley and play the best party music I ever heard at a bowling alley). With the stock market on a roller-coaster everyone is looking for ways to fill free time without breaking the bank. Bowling at 300 is not the way to do that.
Instead, have some family fun, connect with your kids (or some borrowed kids), and do it on the cheap! This weekend plan to play the Wii with the kids, pull out Jenga, or learn how to play little-known and highly entertaining Farkle dice game.
Invite some friends over and turn this good, clean, and often raucous game-playing into a regular event.
