Kids Parties at Pinstripes

We recently had the pleasure of going to Pinstripes to make pizzas and go bowling. I had walked into Pinstripes before and thought the atmosphere was great, but had never eaten or played bocce or bowled there… it was even more fun that I anticipated!

We sat down at a table decked out with indiviual round, wood cutting boards with handles, rounds of dough and all the ingredients laid out for us. The chef came out and gave direction on how to begin and was so patient with the kids. After we were done with our creations the staff put our names on our individual pizzas and we headed to the bowling lanes. While we were bowling they baked them and brought out all of the pizzas. You know the best part? The pizzas tasted awesome! Pinstripes makes everything in house, including the dough and the sauce and everything else on their menu. It definitely showed and we really enjoyed the food.

The bowling was also great. It was my daughter’s first time bowling and I can’t believe how excited she was about it! When you enter everyone’s names you can select if each person wants bumpers, so they go up and down depending on whose turn it is. Very cool. They also had a ramp for younger kids so sometimes my kids threw the ball and sometimes they chose to roll it down the ramp for added speed, which made it more fun for them. The bowling lanes are very comfortable and upscale with couches and screens that keep score.
