MYAKKA BOWLING LANES
MYAKKA LANES (300 S Tamiami Trail, Venice ...1959-1985 … now there: Venice Herald-Tribune) — The 20,000-square-foot building that would host the center was originally a hotel built in 1928. It was converted to a bowling facility under the ownership of Stan Allen in 1959, and John Thornton became proprietor in 1978. The business originally also housed The Circus Lounge, featuring live bands and dancing, and a package liquor store. The 12-lane center closed in late July of 1985 and was razed soon afterward.

EARLY WYNN BOWLING LANES
Early Wynn Jr. (January 6, 1920 – April 4, 1999), nicknamed "Gus", was an American Major League Baseball (MLB) right-handed pitcher. He pitched for the Washington Senators, Cleveland Indians, and Chicago White Sox during his 23-year major league career. He was identified as one of the most intimidating pitchers in the game with his powerful fastball combined with a hard attitude towards batters. Wynn was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972.
In the mid to late 1960s, the pitcher owned the Early Wynn Steak House and Bowling Lanes in Venice, Florida.  In the last years of his life, Wynn suffered a heart attack and a stroke. He moved to an assisted living facility in Venice, Florida, where he died in April 1999. His wife of 50 years had died five years earlier.  From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
