Winter in Milwaukee can be a long, slushy slog, filled with interminable grey days and bitterly cold nights. But Milwaukeeans are a hardy bunch, and they know that one of the best ways to ward off the winter blues—and wear some rented shoes in the process—is bowling. Enter the glorious return of WMSE’s Rock-N-Roll Bowl, a pin-shaking, turkey-striving bowling tournament that will take over Bay View Bowl for the fourth year on Sunday, March 25. Mark it, Milwaukee.

Rock-N-Roll Bowl IV will feature two sessions of 12 teams rolling three games. WMSE DJs Faux Eyes and Marty will be on hand for all your musical needs (cue up “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)”). Prizes will be given out for team high score, individual high score, team low score, and individual low score. Food will be provided by Cafe Corazon. There will also be bowling towels.

Check-in for the first session of rock throwing is at 11 a.m., and the second at 2 p.m. More info can be found here. A team sign-up sheet can be found here. The fee for a four-person team is $160 (a lousy $40 per person). All proceeds will go to support WMSE.
