Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Looks like it’s going to be a little above normal for the week ahead here in St. Louis.

The weekend: Hard to believe the weekend is just now here.  With the Thanksgiving holiday, it seems like the weekend should be about over by now. Yet, here we have a Saturday and Sunday to go.  We went to an old-fashioned 3 pin bowling alley on Friday night with friends.  We have nothing at all planned for Saturday and Sunday.  I’ll be pre-blogging and working on some videos.

The week ahead: On Thursday I’ll be driving to Nashville Tennessee (about four and a half hours) for a blogging conference to be held Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  I’ll be driving home on Monday.  I’m trying to preblog so I won’t have too much to do while traveling.

Binging: We’re about halfway through the first season of The Punisher on Netflix. We finished Stranger Things 2 last week.  Still working on Longmire.  

That’s it from  B&P Headquarters in St. Louis. What’s going on in your world?

    • Apparently, it’s called cocked hat bowling, which I didn’t know until just now when I Googled it. The videos below are at the place we went to in St. Charles, a suburb of St. Louis. The bowling is in the basement under the bar.

      The ceiling in the place is just over 6 feet and even less in some areas, so us taller people have to be careful where and how we walk around. We rent the alley for 4 hours and bring in snacks to share and buy our drinks from the bar.


  1. The game seems to use a Duckpin ball, which is a game using ten small bowling pins and a small ball without finger holes. I haven’t seen a Duckpin bowling alley since I was a kid.


    • Yes, the holeless ball is about 5 inches in diameter and probably weighs about a pound or so. We’ve been going here on the night after Thanksgiving for about ten years now. We usually have 20 to 30 people each year. It’s a fun time with friends.
