For years, you have toiled away at a very safe, menial, job.  It pays well, it is very stable, but it is really boring.  You need a change and you've always wanted to be in the entertainment business.

Is that you?  Then, this could be the perfect opportunity!

According to a listing on the Rizzo Mattson website, Wilton's Meadow Lanes is for sale.

A Classic Maine Bowling Alley

Meadow Lanes, which is located on Route 2 in Wilton, has been in business since 1974.  Over the years, thousands of people from Wilton, Farmington, and the surrounding towns have enjoyed throwing some balls down a lane.

Meadow Lanes is a big ball bowling alley.  That's right, it is not candlepin bowling.  The alley is set up in a kind of unique way.  There are eight lanes on the left, eight lanes on the right, and a front counter / bar area in the center.
