Play a Round at Leo's Metro Bowl Near Eaves Peabody

Leo's Metro Bowl continues to bring the old-school bowling experience to the people of Peabody. It's done so since 1977, its first year in business. Today, not much has changed. Leo's still features well-maintained lanes, a staff that's always more than happy to help, and space for birthday parties and special events.

If you're coming for bowling as a whole clan (as most folks do), try Family Fun Night. It promises a discount on your round, as well as free pizza and complimentary shoe rentals. Younger guests might want to check out the Cosmic Bowling, an event during which black lights and pulsing music transform the bowling alley into a bustling nigh spot. You can also skip the bowling and head right to the arcade. Here you'll find an array of vintage games, not to mention a few pool tables. Make the short drive from Eaves Peabody to Leo's Metro Bowl for a bowling or gaming session in Peabody.

Don't Miss the Beef and Scallions or General Gau's Chicken at Royal Garden Near Eaves Peabody

When it comes to chicken- and beef-based Chinese dishes, Royal Garden is one of the best places to go in Peabody, at least according to its customers. They say that no matter what you go for on Royal Garden's menu, you'll be pleased, but chicken and beef stand out among the rest.

If you'd like a little something to whet your appetite, begin with crispy chicken wings, crab rangoon, or "pork on a stick." Then you can move on to a larger entree, perhaps the moo shi chicken, the beef and scallions, or the General Gau's chicken. Don't head back to Eaves Peabody before you've tried a cocktail, though. Royal Garden's bartenders are almost as well known as the chefs, but they craft sips like the popular Mai Tai instead of Chinese grub.
