Yesterday, I tried my hand at feather bowling, belgian game similar to horseshoes, bocce and petanque. It was a blast. I’ll be playing again.

The game is rarely played in Belgium or elsewhere now. Locally, you can play at Cadieux Cafe on the east side. Better plan ahead – there can be a 6 – 8 month wait for lane reservations.

    … and this is because Cadieux Cafe is home to the ONLY Feather Bowling lanes in the US.

    A great place, indeed. The painted portraits (I kid you not) of past champions watch the action from the high walls of the lanes.

    You’d be surprised at who you might find there…

    Maybe we should have a metblog meet-up there…
