Alleygators, ingeniously named, but not yet “internationally reknown” like Crocodile’s,

is part bowling alley, part sports bar. The night we ventured out to disco bowl, India was playing Sri Lanka in the cricket World Cup. When the Indian men the in the joint cheered for a particularly good play, you could trick yourself into thinking they were appreciating your spare.

I didn’t participate in the first round because I was wearing flip-flops and the proprietor implied it would not be okay for me to play in them. But upon seeing our neighbors play actually barefoot, I joined in for the second round and, for the record, I won.

See how good I am?
