If you’re still unsure what to do after weighing all the other birthday options on this list, just say “f*ck it” and go bowling. And while you might associate bowling alley food with the uncomfortable one-two punch of eating chicken fingers followed by jamming your greasy fingers into a bowling ball, the Painted Pin is a little different. Between turns and Lebowski quotes, you’ll relax on couches and eat soy ginger-glazed edamame, tuna poke wontons, and wood-fired pizzas. The Moscow Mule slushies go down quick though, so maybe just take it easy like The Dude and order a White Russian.
