When the days of bowling was in and hip, there were a couple dozen bowling alleys in Honolulu. To name a few, Kam Bowl, Kalihi Bowl, Waialae Bowl, Kapiolani Bowl, Aiea Bowl, Leeward Bowl, and of course Bow-O-Drome. Bowl-O-Drome, now a desolate building next to the Old Stadium Mall is just a reminder of the past. Homeless individuals park their belongings and shopping carts on the property and nearby as it has become a place for them to lay down in peace away from the rest of society where they can hear the pins of a different kind drop. Perhaps this building will be demolished one day or even better, perhaps it will be revived to a modern place where the community may gather.
