The rumors of Sacco's Bowl Haven's demise have been greatly exaggerated.
OK, so one person -- I can't remember who -- told me the dusty Davis Square candlepin bowling alley was going belly up. And I must admit I spread the rumor ... a little.
But it did make me finally pay my first visit to Sacco's. I know -- it's obnoxious to only go someplace when you hear it's closing (I did the same thing with Tir na nOg). But the good news is, the Somerville institution, open since 1939, is not going anywhere, according to the man renting us our sweet bowling shoes.
The bad news: It still doesn't serve alcohol. The not-so-surprising news: I'm lousy at candlepin bowling. But a few more Friday nights at Sacco's should help remedy that.
