    Hi Dr. Jake,
    I have a matchcover of Sports Bowl (24 new Brunswick centennial alleys) located at 1133 Milwaukee Ave. Is there a connection between Sports Bowl and Stack and Ryan?

    Thank you….Loren Moore

      Stack & Ryan Recreation started out at 1133 North Milwaukee Avenue. During the 1950s, Messrs. Stack and Ryan sold the place on Milwaukee Avenue and opened a new Stack & Ryan Bowl at 1510 North Damen Avenue. Their former venue then became known as Sports Bowl—which is why I labeled the post “Original” Stack & Ryan. Both places are long gone.
