Allstar Lanes sounded like way too much fun and I am always suspicious of way too much fun--I am of the Kitchen Society when it comes to parties or New Year's Eve. But on a Wednesday evening (definitely no fear of fun midweek) I was dragged to the Bayswater branch for a couple of Anchor Steam beers, a San Franciscan beer that my friend Ian insisted he had found "nowhere else in London." The door policy is a little confusing--you don't need to be a member per se but you need to have registered to play a game either at the time or previously: registration costs 10 pounds but your first bowling sesh is free and you get a High Roller card for future entry. This is a place that the Fonz would be happy to frequent (indeed perhaps a little "uptown" for Fonzarelli). Plush banquettes, low lighting and hot waitresses in high-waist jeans: I could learn to like this joint. The Anchor Steam hit the spot and I was near tempted to order a mojito as "Chachi" lined 'em up on the bar in front of me. Yup, there will be a next time. Happy Days.
