King Pin

Got game? Striking out? Just a benchwarmer? (Hate sports analogies?)

Take it easy, champ. Slip on your Pro Grip and schlep your eight-pounder over to Harlem Lanes — the bi-level bowling alley and party space opens tomorrow in the (rapidly rejuvenating) Upper Upper West Side.

Show off your arm-swing at one of the 24 lanes during a game of glow-in-the-dark Extreme Bowling. Impress your date by chugging pitchers of beer. Or roll some gutter balls and dig into platters of BBQ shrimp, spring rolls, sliders, and chicken wings. (The menu is extensive.)

When you’re sick of spares, take a break with your Big Lebowski on the leather couches or rock out with the Saturday night DJ until the wee hours.

Ladies will love the super-cute, high-heeled bowling shoes (technically not for bowling). Guys will dig the flat-screen TVs and football nights. Private parties can appreciate the specialized balls.

And, in this case, keep your mind in the gutter.

Harlem Lanes, 2116 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard, at 126th Street, third floor (212-678-2695 or harlemlanes.com).
