Shooting Pool

Via Williamsburg is Dead, I came across, a web site devoted to bars with pool tables in 11211-land. Once upon a time, kids, the only pool table in the neighborhood was at Turkey’s Nest. And it was a 6′ table at that, crammed into a corner, with much using of short cues required. As a result, we spent a lot of time at places like Mona’s or McGovern’s. So it was great news in 1996 or so when Sweetwater’s, and its pool table, opened.
Now I see there are more than two dozen tables within a short walk from home.
Not that I’m getting old or anything.
(FWIW, I prefer the table at the Levee.)
