“I’m bored.”

It is the universal summer vacation refrain, to which the correct response is handing the bored kid a list of chores. But once chores are done, it is time to have fun and that is where Stars and Strikes comes in.

Stars and Strikes is offering free bowling until Aug. 23 to kids ages 2-15. Kids who register online at www.kidsbowlfree.com/starsandstrikes will receive two free bowling games each week anytime Monday-Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon. Free bowling will not be available on Sundays.

With the opening in August of Dave and Busters in Huntsville, how does Stars and Strikes differentiate itself from the competition?

“(Dave and Busters) is geared more for a different demographic, we are targeting families,” said Terrie Littrell, sales manager for Stars and Strikes Huntsville.

In fact, Rocket City Mom named Stars and Strikes the best place to hold a children’s birthday party in 2019, calling it “a perfect 10.” And there are other key differences between the two entertainment centers. Dave and Busters’ Huntsville location will not have a bowling alley, nor will it include bumper cars, laser tag or escape rooms – all hallmarks of Stars and Strikes.

While Littrell is speaking professionally, she recently had the opportunity to experience her workplace from a different view when her son celebrated his 13th birthday at Stars and Strikes.

“I was here as a mom and ah! I had so much fun,” she said with a laugh.
