I was in one of those boring meetings this morning (2 hours yuck!) and my mind started to wander. So I took my little pad that I brought to the meeting to take down "notes". Yeah, well, instead I wrote up a list of all of the poolhalls that I've played in. I was wondering about you guys too:
Hall of Fame Billiards
Park Slope Billiards
Avenue U Billiards
Carom Cafe II Billiards
Arena Cafe Billiards
El Rincon Latino Billiards
New Horizon Billiards
Avenue B Billiards
Le Q Billiards
Spin City Billiards
Le Q Billiards
Golden Q Billiards
Rack 'Em Up Billiards
Port Richmond Billiards
Rack 'Em Up Billiards
You can see how long this meeting was that I actually had the time to think this out! LOL I have to admit, some of these rooms are definitely more memorable than others! And of course, I have my slew of bar tables but I'll never remember all of the names of the bars/taverns!
In the city: Ames and Mcgirr's. I think they were both in Manhattan,
Upstate: Joe Canton's
Manhester and Middletown CT: Red Sox Dugout, Capital Billiards and many others nearby now all gone.
Been to Q-Master but just hung out with Earl and Willie Jopling. They both ducked me.
I wish I could remember the rooms in Baltimore and Hartford in the 60's as well as many other cities. All gone now.
I don't think I set foot in a PH from the 70's through the 90's.

Way too many to mention. Every city I visit I at least try to get over to the best-known pool hall in town.

My mind wandered once....
and it never came back.
Bumpers Downtown (no longer open)
Neon Palace (no longer open)
USA Billiards (no longer open)
Golden Crown Billiards (no longer open)
Legends Billiards(didn't get to play, they were full)
Pockets (now known as Starbucks Billiards)
Ft Walton, FL:
The Pool Room
Jim Bob's Pool Hall (didn't get to play there, incorrect ID)
Rack Em' Billiards
(tables read: No Massay and in the only bathroom in the joint the wall read "Don't piss on the seat, girls use this bathroom too.")
WOW, states, cities/towns = rooms, aw hell I'd don't have a clue, countless. If bar pool rooms were in there it boggles the mind, not that it takes much. LOL You must have been bored, so what was the meeting about. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Well that does bring back a lot of memories... not sure I got them all, but I got a lot of them... probably not as many as 9-ball girl though...lol.
When I first read your post, I was thinking, "wow that is a lot of different pool halls to play in." I didn't think that I had played in that many, but after I started compiling my list, it looks like I have played in more than I thought...lol.
And I even forgot:
Pennsylvania - Ivory Billiards, Bee Gee's Family Billiards, Diamond Billiards, Markley Billiards, and 2 others by Valley Forge that I don't remember the names of.

A couple places I can think of would be University Billiards, CR Billiards, a few basements here and there in Minneapolis. Billiards on Broadway in Fargo, and now my rec room at home.

I'm guessing well over a hundred. Surely.
It might be easier just to write down the States and countries I've played in. Or not.
Germany (Black Forest & Bavaria)

Rod <hr /></blockquote>Bah, workstation replacements, a 3 day meeting I might have to attend in Baltimore, and then I wandered from there...
I'm sure they can be boring but I don't see any Maryland poolrooms on your resume? It might be fun to add one even if you don't take a cue. I think there are some other CCBers near there. It's an adventure. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

All the places you've ever played are within a few hours' drive of one another! You need to get out more!

Wendy is in New York. I would guess, to get to many of these rooms it is either a "few hours drive" or a 15 minute walk. Take your pick. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Actually, out of all of them, the closest walking distance is Park Slope Billiards and it would probably take me 40 minutes to walk there.
