Tucked into the North Pinellas 'burbs is a surprisingly progressive bowling alley. We say this for a few reasons: (A) It puts on a pretty rad cosmic bowling night, with smoke, laser lights and music by artists like the Ting Tings, Keri Hilson and Flo Rida. And (B) Three words: Gay bowling night. It's the first Thursday of every month. $10 includes shoes. Get deets at myspace.com/gaybowlingnight.

The bowling: Cosmic nights — Fridays and Saturdays from 9:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. — it's $14 per person for unlimited bowling, shoes and karaoke. DJ Mark McKay intermittently leads the crowd in synchronized bowling (everyone throws a ball at the same time) and "flashback music trivia" for glow necklaces and other prizes. The family-friendly facility has 24 lanes, with children's bumpers on every lane, specials for family night and dollar days for kids.

The grub: Chatterbox restaurant is a throwback — a greasy spoon with cheap eats. Then there's wood-panelled karaoke room. The scene feels obsolete in a strangely comforting way. Karaoke goes on only during cosmic bowling nights.

Prices: Games are $3 to $3.50. Shoes $3.
