What started in 1949 as a
bowling alley in Lawrenceville
has morphed into Colonial
Bowling & Entertainment,
which the Sheft family, owners since 1963, terms “the
epitome of a modern-age
family entertainment center.”
The 38,000-square-foot complex features 24
lanes—replete with couches, lane-side food-and-beverage service, black lighting and Jum-botrons—plus multilevel laser tag, an 80-game
arcade and a bar and grill. The Shefts take
pride in o;ering “a kid-friendly atmosphere
with more adult-oriented nightlife.” (2420

Lake Musconetcong was created in the
mid-1800s to bolster Lake Hopatcong as
a water source for the Morris Canal—New
Jersey’s industrial highway of the 1800s.
The Musconetcong River flows through the
shallow lake, which tends to get choked
with weeds. On the plus side, the state
stocks Musconetcong every spring with
brown, rainbow and brook trout. In spring
and summer, anglers pull those beauties,
plus largemouth bass, catfish, perch and
pickerel, from the lake, which covers 329
acres of Morris and Sussex counties. In
winter, fishermen cut holes in the ice, and
Musconetcong yields up hungry perch and
pickerel. ( stateparks.com)

An Offer You Can't Refuse
Angelo Lutz isn't ashamed to admit he
served seven years in prison for
racketeering. In fact, his Collingswood
restaurant, Kitchen Consigliere,
promotes and lampoons his past. Apart
from the schtick, the reason to go, says
reviewer Jill P. Capuzzo, is that Lutz's
classic red sauce Italian food is
excellent. Read More.
