Kings “A Classy Bowling Joint” located in North Hills Raleigh, NC recently had an amazing grand opening event and I was in attendance. It was top notch from the moment you pulled up with complimentary valet parking, red carpet entrance, cotton candy, and photo with branded back drop. As soon as I entered the front door the environment was so inviting. There was a live DJ, several buffet options set up, and open bar offering signature cocktails in different areas of the venue. The staff was amazing! There were hosts & hostesses walking around with delicious hors d’ oeuvres. You had an opportunity to bowl, play pool, ping pong, shuffleboard, foosball, or darts. You are not short of entertainment at Kings Bowling! Check out the photos sprinkled throughout this blog post. Partial photo credit goes to my sister Laing for capturing a great night! So, here are ten awesome things about Kings Bowling North Hills…
