Reconnect Date Night

As of January 2014, 90% of Americans have a cell phone, and 58% have a smartphone. Is that fact surprising to you? If you’re like us, a stat like this is only par for the course in today’s digital world.

But what about these stats?      

  • 67% of cell owners find themselves checking their phone for messages, alerts, or calls — even when they don’t notice their phone ringing or vibrating.
  • 44% of cell owners have slept with their phone next to their bed because they wanted to make sure they didn’t miss any calls, text messages, or other updates during the night.
  • 29% of cell owners describe their cell phone as “something they can’t imagine living without.”

The complete dependence that Americans are beginning to have (or already have) on their smartphones is a little startling. Let’s pair those statistics with the new side effects beginning to crop up from smartphone addiction. Side effects like:

  • Computer Vision Syndrome (from scrolling through dozens of tweets)
  • Nomophobia (fear of being without your phone)
  • Phantom Pocket Vibration Syndrome (when your phone isn’t actually buzzing, but you really, really thought it was)

Smartphone addiction is becoming a real issue, especially for couples. And that’s why JB’s on 41 is introducing the Reconnect Project.

Leave your phones at home – or at least keep them turned off for the night.

They’re not allowed at JB’s on 41 on Friday, November 7th!

On that day, we’re offering a package from 6:30 – 8:30 pm for couples looking to reconnect over two hours of unlimited bowling in Suite 41, the luxurious semi-private crown jewel of JB’s. You’ll help yourself to a pizza buffet, two drink tickets per person, AND two hours of unlimited bowling. All this for only $49.99!

Worried about missing out on spectacular photo-ops during the Reconnect Project? Don’t worry! We’ll be taking pictures all night, and we’ll post them to our Facebook page for you to check out later…but well after your date is over!
