2 Atlanta streets closed, Homeland Security called to mercury investigation

Another fancy bowling alley is opening in Gwinnett (with free stuff)


Move over, Main Event Suwanee — a second fancy new bowling alley will hold a grand opening in Gwinnett County next month, and it's offering free stuff.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Monday that Main Event Entertainment, which features bowling, laser tag and much, much more, will officially open on Suwanee's Northolt Parkway on Dec. 13. But three days before that, a similar (if not slightly smaller) concept will hold a grand opening in Peachtree Corners.

Bowlero, which has locations in eight different states, announced Tuesday that it will officially open its venue at 6345 Spalding Drive on Dec. 10. Between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. that day, guests will receive one free game of bowling and a free $5 arcade card.

On its website, Bowlero describes itself as an"electro-cool bowling with a funky hipster ethos — a retro-vintage laneside hangout where you can roll like a rebel, party like a rock star, and feast on the wildly inventive American eats of our mouth-rageous menu."

The Peachtree Corners facility, which was Brunswick's Norcross in a former life, boasts 34 bowling lanes, "a high-end sports bar and dining area, trendy lounge spaces and interactive arcades." Food offerings will include the so-called "Behemoth Burger" — a five-pound, 14-inch-round monstrosity.

Bowlero will also hold grand opening festivities at its new Marietta location on Dec. 10.
