Diversey River Bowl
Better known as Diversey Rock’n’Bowl, it’s best on Monday, punk rock night, with its giddy crowd of regulars, but almost any night will find a kind of bowling undreamt of by league overseers: fun, young and drunk? The thirty-six lanes have a special secret to facilitate the boozy Chicago-osity of it all: They’re plastic-sealed against the kind of damage that could quickly warp and ruin a lesser joint.
