An eager crowd greeted co-owner Ethan Wurtzel as he opened the front door for the opening night of The Comet Pub & Lanes on Friday, July 15. The new bowling venue is located in the building that Suburban Lanes formerly occupied. Wurtzel said that he wanted to create a space that was “less screen oriented” where people could do activities with friends while enjoying good food and good beer.
