AMF Bowling has announced plans to build "an elaborate bowling center" in Chicago, according to Fred Mitchell of the CHICAGO TRIBUNE. AMF President Doug Stanard "hinted the yet-unnamed new facility will be called the Michael Jordan Lanes." Jordan became an AMF spokesperson in October after AMF acquired Michael Jordan Golf (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 1/28). PIN NEWS: Strike Ten named Budweiser and Bud Light the Official Beers of Bowling. The multi-year deal includes a new consumer promo, "Budweiser/Bud Light Bowling Night," which will offer POS materials and various promo concepts through '98. Strike Ten also signed with Party Express, a division of Hallmark, to enhance the in-center birthday party experience. Party Express will offer six themed packages, sold by bowling center proprietors, including invitations, cups, plates, napkins and hats (Strike Ten).
