A big redesign at Cape Ann Lanes is underway. It’s looking great. $25 for an hour is an excellent option for a group of teens. P.S. Until the dining option is completed, they have local menus on hand for ordering pick up or delivery. Snacks and beverages are available on site.

Looking to the Future…
You probably already heard our plans to add a larger kitchen and brewpub within the existing footprint of our business. Click here to read the GDT article.
(ed. note: and recent article in Cape Ann Beacon)
The last step in the approval process is to get a special permit for our brewpub from the Zoning Board of Appeals. Thank you to all of you that have show such amazing support since the GDT article was released last week. If we can get this approval, we can finally make this a reality.
You can attend the public hearing THIS Thursday, January 31st at 7 PM in the Kyrouz auditorium at Gloucester City Hall (upstairs).
Some things that we want everyone to know about our plans:
-We will always be a family friendly candlepin bowling alley
-We already have a food establishment permit
-We already have our Federal, State and city license to have a Brewpub
-We already serve food and beer/wine, we are just looking to improve and increase capacity to serve our customers
-We need to improve our capacity and offerings for food and beverage to keep up with demand and other entertainment options
-We still run birthday parties for people of all ages and all kinds of events
-This will help keep locals on the Island to have fun AND attract people from off the island to increase revenue for the CIiy of Gloucester
-We love this city, this business and this community and we are here for the long haul!

Some people feel that’s because it’s harder than 10 pin. Who remembers Candlepin Bowling competitions on Channel 5 (1950s-1970s), later other channels (1970s-1990s), one of the most hidden watched sports on TV? It may have been on in the ‘background’, but it was a staple. Did they have bars then? Here’s some vintage inspiration, one with sportscaster Don Gillis 1992
