Belgians and others of a feather


Best Bar to Play Games (Wayne County)
Cadieux Cafe

Forget pool, darts and picking up dates, your favorite bar game in Wayne County is feather bowling, and you can play it at the Cadieux Cafe. Epicenter for the area’s Belgian population, the bar has a wonderful European charm right down to its central diversion. Taking place in large grooved lanes, the object of feather bowling is to knock down a pigeon feather with a wooden, wheel-shaped ball. The competition can get intense, and due to high demand it’s often a good idea to reserve a lane in advance. Or, if you just want to soak in the Flemish atmosphere, there are tables and chairs for all you spectators.

Cultural heritage has never been so much fun!
