Happy New Year to each of you and if you are looking for some fun for New Year’s Eve and like to bowl, the Gold Dust West Bowling Center is featuring a fun party. Starting at 7 p.m. you can join the fun with bowling in the dark, raffle prizes, appetizers buffet, dessert and a toast of champagne at midnight. I don’t think I can bowl that well with the lights out but I was assured the lanes will be visible for the bowlers to see the Double Monte Carlo, 9-pin No-tap colored pins.
