Brétigny-sur-Orge with our friends Catherine and Bernadette.
After a meal at Pizza Paï we arrived at the
bowling alley to find that there was trop de monde. I think another thing that put us off was that there was the need for a bouncer at the door! Reminded me of my nightclub days as a youngster back in the UK
So we rescheduled for the following Wednesday (last). The alley was mostly empty, even if there was another bouncer there that night on the door.
It’s something like 12 years or so since I last went bowling, that was back home in Leicester. I heard the bowling alley over there was demolished at the beginning of this year to make way for a new shopping centre.
As usual I ordered an “Assiette Texan”. The girls had grillades, although Catherine having ordered a red raw steak then found she had a fight with it. It was full of nerves and grisle and in the end she gave up.
When the server came – she pointed out that it was uneatable. The answer was “Sorry Madame, but that’s the Classique so there’s always a lot of fat in it”. To which Catherine pointed out that it wasn’t the fat that was the problem.
Enter the free coffees for everyone and an apology. 🙂
Despite the bowling alley being a bit like the zone, it’ll be fun to go again. But I think we’ll avoid Friday nights and the weekend!
