Wicked Interesting: 

Ugly Sweater Bowling at Lang’s Bowl-A-Rama on Friday Night from 8-10pm! 


  • Hosted by the Super Fun Activities Club
  • https://www.facebook.com/events/811090315698837/
  • Things are about to ugly. Really really ugly. Yep, you guessed it. It’s that time of year again. While some people just wear sweaters they wear all the time, some Super Fun people break out their best sweaters only once or twice a year. Well, it’s that time. It’s Ugly Sweater time. Quack the Duck and the Super Fun Activities Club put on an Ugly Sweater Bowling party last year. And we’re doing it again. And it’s going to be bigger and better than last year. This year, we are introducing a prize for the UGLIEST Sweater! Who is bringing their A game this year?
  • The festivities will be happening at the same location. They were great hosts last year so we are glad to give them our business again. As you are well aware, SFAC supports doing business locally and this party is no exception. The bowling will commence at 8pm at Lang’s Bowlarama. Lang’s is located at 225 Niantic Ave, Cranston, RI.
  • Tickets are $20 per person, see the website for the link -

Thank You:

Today’s episode has been sponsored by Timmy's Legendary Grilled Pizza on Federal Hill in Providence.


  • Timmy Doyle, creator and former owner of the Bob & Timmy's Legendary Grilled Pizza, has opened Timmy's Legendary Grilled Pizza on 32 Spruce Street in Federal Hill. Doyle created the original menu at Bob & Timmy's that made the grilled pizza nationally renowned. Bob & Timmy's was sold and the new owners closed its doors for good, so Doyle quickly took over the space and opened the new Timmy's Legendary Grilled Pizza with Kyle Klewin at 32 Spruce Street.
  • The place has been packed! Loyal customers and new fans have found the menu to have all its favorites and well loved dishes. All the grilled pizzas and pastas have been applauded. Reviews on Yelp and Facebook give 5 stars and applaud the food, service and new remodel of the space.
  • Tuesday At Timmy's Happy Hour has been the place to be from 4-7 as well.
