Shall we have a vote? My main criteria is atmosphere and it sounds like Java (Polynesian exterior) and LinBrook (mid-century mod interior) are the most attractive to me. I think Java is the closest to Bong's, no?

Tina, Tina, Floratina,

Yeah, let's do Java then. It is closest and it is Polynesian.

Some of their old ads say:

"Every Friday and Saturday Night from 10pm-1am Rock and Bowl to Live Bands as well as experiencing our Cosmic Light Show all for only $3.25 a game."

Is this still going on?

Do we coordinate a start time to finish before 10pm or should we actually start at 10pm?

Maybe Bongs earlier in evening, then Li's Chinese, then off to Java Lanes? Maybe Ben will have a special sale that day for TC'ers? Maybe we can fly to Hawaii!!(Ha, ok, I'm getting off the mark). Just a suggestion, so whatever you guys plan, I will go with it.

Just my 2 bowling balls worth (Humuhumu took my 2 coconuts on an earlier post and I have yet to get them back).

I'd suggest that whoever wants to go start posting something to that effect. Maybe a Long Beach TC'r can check out Java Lanes, and I'll handle Bong's Tiki Hut and Li's reservations.

Just note if you're: meeting at Java Lanes only, stopping by Bamboo Ben's Shop, Stopping by Bong's Tiki Hut, Li's or any combination therein.

I've started the roll call on the first post. I'm in for Ben's, Bong's, Li's & Bowling. Everyone give a shout & I'll add you.

Taking a stab at the timing: Bong's busy 'til 4, and we'll probably want to start eating by maybe 6:30 or so; Bong, should we meet at your place at 5ish? Ben, should we swing by your shop before that & then parade over to Bong's?

Yeah, my place around 5:00; Li's (if you all want to go) around 6:30. They've remodeled the interior of Li's, It's OK I guess. But most everything is still intact,except the aquariums. Oh well...

"They've remodeled the interior of Li's, It's OK I guess."

Bong- You'll be stoked on the re-model. Half of the place is "all bar now!" and is packed all the time!

"Newmu-Humu" (ha! Humu's new Hoiti name name!!?) and the rest of the Hoiti's, if Ya'll wanna come by the store, you's got to contact "Mrs. Boo". It's her store! She handles it (I just build the stuff). I also heard that the store now closes (since the time change, back to the original hours) at Sunset. So, I suggest you all pop by first and for those of you who have not signed the pole, we're running out of room (Can't get Bamboo much bigger than 10" in diam.).

(too bad you's all wern't in Frisco. They got a Shag-ish bowling alley. Ask C'Al and Ape about that one. It's day glow!)

I stopped by Java Lanes today, and they have nothing out of the ordinary going for Saturday night.... ever since the city revoked their entertainment license, they can't even play recorded music there! There's been an ongoing political battle regarding the bowling alley for the past 3 yrs... the city wants to tear it down for a school district vehicle storage yard..!


So, other than the most awesome cantilever A-frame entry & the googie bowling sign (you can see it in the distance in the pic, directly under the A-frame), there's nothing too exciting about the place any more. Even their Java Lounge, one of Long Beach's best band venues, is reduced to karaoke, that has to cease by 9pm.

So, if you're up for it, its good for bowling and gawking at the entry, else if ya want the excitement of Rock-n-Bowl or something like that, we better plan on some place else.

Bowling options with Rock-n-Bowl/Cosmic Bowl, reasonably close to Bong's pad:

Fountain Bowl
Fountain Valley
Cosmic Bowl on Sat. nites.... 11pm-2am... $15/person + $4 shoe rental... nice bowling alley with 60 lanes

Westminster Lanes
Westminster
Rock-n-Bowl on Sat. nites.... 10pm-2am... $10.75/person + $2.75 shoe rental... classic 60s bowling alley, 40 lanes, don't know if their cool cheezy cocktail lounge is still there though....

Rossmoor Bowl
Seal Beach
Rock-n-Bowl on Sat nites.... 9:30pm-2am... $29.99/lane 1hr, $49.99/lane 2hrs, $54.99/lane 3hrs, $64.99/lane all 4 hours... another classic 60s bowling alley, 40 lanes, and conveniently located next to the Parasol restaurant, a real treat if you've never been....

TraderP,

Good scouting. Rossmore Bowl sounds cool. Can you see about reservations and I'll take care of Bong's and Li's.

Doesn't seem to be much interest yet though. We'll see what develops.

Then I will tell you if I am going.
