MILWAUKEE - KOZ'S MINI BOWL

Images of Koz's Mini Bowl located at 2078 S. 7th St. in South Milwaukee. The tavern contains the last duckpin bowling lanes in the U.S. A excerpt from the magazine article Boys' Night Out - A South Side Tour, by Michael Stottler........

"The bar area was nearly empty when we arrived just before 6:30 PM, and we counted ourselves lucky to get a lane immediately. Koz’s Mini Bowl does take lane reservations, so you might be well-served to call ahead for a lane on a Friday or Saturday night. Koz's Mini Bowl removes from the equation the things that people find objectionable about bowling. There are no stinky, weird rental shoes. There is no obligatory scavenger hunt for a ball with the right-sized finger holes. Koz's Mini Bowl has four 16-foot lanes. The game is scored like regular bowling, but uses non-holed, grapefruit-sized bowling balls and miniature pins. Unlike modern bowling centers, there is no electronic scoring, and the pins are set by hand. The bowling was fun and fast-paced. With a 16-foot lane, there’s no agonizing wait between the ball’s release from your hand and the satisfying sound of flying pins. Moreover, the short lanes mean practically no gutter balls."
