You’ll find 20 lanes, plush couches and reclaimed wood accents. Trade your hot dogs for pork belly steamed buns and swap out your Bud Light for Vasen Brewing’s Roll Pilsner, a beer made specifically for RCR. While you bowl, sip on New- and Old-World wine selections; get in touch with your inner “Dude” via a White Russian that’s a “Big Lebowski” homage; and indulge in the Gutterball, a wood-fired pizza with kale, creamy goat cheese and sweet touches of house-made fig jam and caramelized onions.

Bingo is a longtime vision of restaurateurs Jason Alley, Michele Jones and Jay Bayer, helped along by fellow partner Ted Ukrop, in a former bingo hall. Though the bingo’s gone, they do have classic arcade games, as well as a six-tank brewing system with sudsy varieties including their flagship Bingo Lager, a collab between Jay Bayer and head brewer Ken Rayher, formerly of Hardywood and Champion Brewing. An atypical offering here is the sit-down restaurant spearheaded by Alley, who describes the menu as “snack-bar-type fare but a little bit chef-y.” Tang & Biscuit 3406 W. Moore St. At this Scott’s Addition spot, they keep it literal: Eat biscuit sandwiches while pushing biscuits (shuffleboard pucks) down the court, and drink a Tang-quila Sunrise while holding a tang (a shuffleboard stick). If someone told you years ago that RVA would be home to the largest indoor shuffleboard social club in the country, would you have believed them?
