The CEO of an upscale bowling company tells Washington Business Journal they are eyeing a location in Northern Virginia, likely either Reston Town Center or somewhere in Tysons Corner.

Pinstripes is set to open this weekend in Georgetown. It will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, and is currently taking reservations for private events and parties. 

Pinstripes offers a unique dining and entertainment experience featuring Italian and American cuisine, combined with bowling and bocce. The Georgetown location will include 14 bowling lanes, six bocce courts, a bistro and wine cellar, outdoor patios and event space accommodating 20 to 600 people. 

Watch the Pinstripes video to get a feel for its food and fun.

wondering if Tall Oaks could benefit from having s strip mall with just kids stuff..bowling alley..not upscale..and a something like a Chukie cheese..someplaces where teens can safely hang out…It'll never happen I know .not a money maker ..but a good idea anyway i think...

Those hang-out arrangements have been tried and failed over the decades (as have most of the low-end eating joints). Hudgins used to run one, and it was the biggest failure of all. There are any number of community centers in Reston, the library, the YMCA, before and after school programs, the pools, tennis courts, nature centers, and many more we surely are overlooking. Tall Oaks for retail is a disaster and has been for decades. Even the most recent renovation, by the same entity that redid Hunters Woods center, is a flop.

I think that would be great! It is nice to have a nice bowling alley to go to. My husband and I go bowling almost once a week. Alena | http://olivebranchfamilybowling.com
