Bowling alley/music club mixes it up for fun on the Jersey Shore.
We’ve been to museums, parks and art galleries, taken spooky walking tours and visited parks on elevated train tracks. We’ve explored Pompeii and Wildwood and played some classic video games, so this week, we’re headed to the bowling alley. Yes, the bowling alley. Only this isn’t the one you may recall from your youth where the alleys smelled of cigar smoke drifting from the lounge, the pool tables reeked of old spilled beer, and the food concessions provided pretzels that could also be classified as deadly weapons. Asbury Lanes, located on 209 4th St., does offer strikes and spares for your bowling needs, but the venue is also a club specializing in indie, punk and rockabilly bands. The place came highly recommended from the band The …

Standout Jason Maulbeck and two other seniors lead a relatively inexperienced squad in its new conference.
"Something about throwing the ball at pins is fun," Jason Maulbeck said before he took his turn at Madison Plaza Lanes. He is the standout on the Madison High School varsity bowling team, and the leader of the squad. His enjoyment of the sport is infectious – he high-fives teammates after his strikes and spares, and they mention him when asked about their goals. He, along with fellow seniors Lance Carriere and Harrison Mills, hope to lead the young team on a win streak following a disappointing 0-3 start. "I've loved it my entire life," Maulbeck said. He ought to, as bowling is a seven day part of his life. Aside from hitting the lanes with his Dodgers teammates twice a week, he bowls in three other leagues. "At this point, I don't have …

Dodgers' Maulbeck averages 192 in three-game match
ROCKAWAY TWP. – The best bowler in Tuesday’s Madison-Chatham NJAC matchup wore a maroon and yellow shirt. But it was the team in the blue shirts that came out on top. Madison’s Jason Maulbeck bowled a 576 in the three-game match, but his efforts were not enough to lift the Dodgers to a win over the rival Cougars. Chatham swept all three games by scores of 752-676, 754-698 and 842-592. The Cougars’ depth proved too much for Madison – all five Chatham bowlers averaged at least 139 pins per game, while only two Dodgers could meet that target. Still, it was Maulbeck, who bowled a 296 in the Bishop Ahr Classic in North Brunswick Sunday , who was the standout performer of the match. Maulbeck’s powerful, fast bowling resulted in multiple runs of …
