No Plans for the Weekend, Atmark? Roll a Strike at Sacco’s Bowl Haven!
Some bowling alleys are cookie-cutter national chains, and some have serious personality. Sacco's Bowl Haven is of the latter sort, and as soon as you step inside you'll understand why. This Somerville venue does bowling, for sure (in fact, it's part of an eighty-year-old family-owned regional chain), but the bowling is candlepin-only, which means that you're using three different balls to knock down ultra-thin candlepins.
Off to the side of the lanes, you'll see a custom wood-fired hearth where flatbread pizzas are expertly cooked in 700-plus-degree heat. There's even a viewing bench near the pizza oven where you can watch employees toss dough, arrange toppings, and use a long-handled spatula to slide the pizzas in and out of the oven.
Thinking about stopping by this weekend, Atmark? Note that Sacco's is popular and fills up fast, so it's definitely best to reserve your lane before you arrive. If you don't, you should expect a short wait, though with tasty pizza and beer on site that's hardly a problem!
