Suster's Arcade in Denmark is ending one tradition, but keeping another firmly in place.
Suster's, at 117 N. Wall St., plans to tear out its bowling lanes after 75 years, but it's going to continue family ownership into the fifth generation.
Jason and Amanda (Suster) Baugnet will join Leon and Theresa Suster as co-owners of the restaurant in July. Dale Suster, who runs the place with his brother Leon, will retire.
Connecting the dots, Dale is the one who takes care of the bowling alley, Jason Baugnet said, so it seems like a good time to make the change.
"The bowling kind of moseys on like it always does. It's been getting less and less," Baugnet said. "It's always hard to make big changes, but this is the time to change."
The lanes will be replaced with a private-dining area for about 100, hosting anniversaries, funeral dinners, small class reunions and the like. Construction is expected to start in early April and end by July 1.
Along with the change in ownership and the new construction, Suster's, which opened in 1909, will celebrate 50 years of serving broasted chicken in July. It recently was named by one of our readers as among the best places for an old-fashioned Sunday chicken dinner.
