Serra Bowl has had a special place in bowlers’ hearts for more than half a century. After 51 years of operation, his Daly City bowling alley is losing its lease and will have to close its doors by April 15.
This means that the over 1,500 bowlers who compete in its over 20 leagues won’t even have the chance to close out their season. The landlord refused the alley’s request for two more weeks so that the leagues could finish out. Sorry gang, but money apparently talks when it comes to this piece of real estate located adjacent to the Colma BART station — the extension was refused.
This, my friends, is a big blow. Serra Bowl was one of the last remaining classic alleys, where you washed your hands after games and you could score a White Russian at the bar to go with your basket of fries from the snack shack. Or, you know, bring the kids and find parking real easy, depending on your bag.
