In 1952 eight bowling lanes were added. Then, in 1964, added four more lanes. Business was booming; but, on August 1, 1970 a fire took everything. Not to be discouraged, Pete Albano rebuilt a modern facility that housed 20 lanes, pro shop, grill, arcade, and opened for business in November, 1971. Poppy’s Parlor came along four years later on October 25, 1975. It was moved and expanded to its present location in the summer of 1981, and renamed Poppy’s Ristorante.
