Along with gifts and good food, the holiday season often brings family members and friends from across the country to one central location — crammed around a dining room table avoiding talk of politics. While quality time with all three of your rarely seen uncles is appreciated, it’s not easy entertaining a house full of guests. Take your relatives to any or all of these local hangouts to clear the house for a few hours and enjoy time together.

The scoop: This bowling alley, family-owned and operated for more than 50 years, is unlike most others, the locals boast. While your bowling balls hit the pins, the food hits the spot.

Large groups are welcome, and reservations aren’t necessary — call ahead or just show up. Wheat Ridge Lanes also offers a spacious full-service bar and a heated patio that seats up to 60 people.
