On the great list of oxymorons (jumbo shrimp, born-again virgin), the concept of a bowling alley serving martinis ranks high. Located in the Legends Shopping Center, Pinup Bowl is a yuppie-hipster hybrid of swank and fun with a lounge atmosphere, candy-colored balls and large video screens over the lanes that air music videos and cartoons. Pop Tarts and Campbell's soup are on the menu, but the real attraction is Pinup's lengthy drink list. Quaffing multiple El Floriditas and daiquiris might make slinging balls around a hazard -- or improve your game. At any rate, one more oxymoron has changed, thanks to Pinup Bowl: driving to KCK for a good time.
