Best Pool Hall - 2003
Readers' Choice: Slick Willie's
When you play pool at a bar, cigarette burns, drinks stains, crappy cues and uneven tables go with the territory. But when you play at a pool hall, you expect well-maintained equipment. The thing is, some halls are better than others about upkeep. At Fast Eddie's, you won't find any torn felt or worn-down cues. And the tables are always level. Everything about the place is comfortable, and the balls never do anything to surprise you, like randomly curving across the table. Of course, what that means is, if you make a mistake, you can't blame the table. It's all your fault.
