Sport Bowl calling it quits
The owners of Sport Bowl, a south-side institution for 67 years, plan to close in about a week. The 32-lane bowling alley has struggled since locally based Royal Pin bought it from the Brehob family in 2006. The last day for bowling is May 4, said Susie Brehob, who manages the facility at 3900 S. East St. The owners plan to sell the building and parking lots. What would you like to see here?
