Sunset Bowl

posted by on March 29 at 12:50 PM

The Sunset Bowl in Ballard is closing on April 13. On April 22 everything on the premises—from the vending machines to the bowling pins—is going to be auctioned off. More details at MyBallard.


At least one industrial-strength ball polisher is going to be auctioned off. So if, um, you’ve got industrial-strength balls and they’re in need of regular polishing, you’re not going to want to miss this auction.

Please note: your balls don't qualify as "industrial strength" unless you can pick up a bowling ball with them. Or at least crush a beer can.

I think Mr. Poe is going to need something stronger than that

But Dan, who needs an industrial-strength ball polisher as long as you're around?

I think Mr. Poe likes his balls rough.

A warning to anyone that wins bowling pins at auction: don't use them as firewood. My boss when I worked in a bowling alley (a PBA Hall-of-Famer named Bill Allen) used to take the worn-out pins home and use them as firewood. He died waiting for a new liver.

"Homer, have you been usin' the ball polisher on yer head again?"

Homer thinks for a moment, while his shiny noggin reflects an image of the alley around him

"Um, noooooo."

"Okay, then."

Wow. Did you really put this up just to make a ball joke?

Hey, ball jokes are awesome. Everyone's thinkin' it, somebody's gotta say it.

Ok I did laugh out loud.
"industrial balls"

Coincidentally, I wore my bowling anklet socks today. I purchased them for $2.75 out of the vending machine at the Sunset. They were dispensed and packaged in a ziplock sandwich baggie. I still love that.

My wife dislocated her shoulder while bowling under the influence at Sunset Bowl several years ago...
