Breakers is a pretty good room. No bar, but they have an ice cream stand. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif There tables are pretty well maintained, relatively easy pockets. I've been in there 3 or 4 times (I'm not from that area exactly) and I thought it was pretty good. Nadine Mazzola the former wpba player used to manage the place. I don't think she does any longer, but she still plays and teaches there.
I've never been in Silver Cup and have never heard anything about it. Well you're there you're only about 20 or 30 minutes from Country Club USA in Chelmsford, MA, that's a very nice room, well maintained GC IV's.

Hey thatís my hometown.
I grew up there but moved in 1989

Back then Breakers was an auto body shop that a friend of mine owned.
Became breakers after I moved. Like catscradle said it is a nice place.

The Sliver cue is a different story.
Last time I was there was june 2003.
This place has been there forever and it shows.
If you like that old room feel then check it out.
Here is the scene:
Your walking down the street in downtown Woburn MA. You see
an old sign that say "Silver Cue". Itís just a door tucked between
two other businesses. When you open the door all you see is a flight
of stairs leading upward. Reminiscent of the Hustler. Climb the
steps to another door. The other side of the door you will find
several cloudy cones hovering over about seven 9' tables.
The room seems too small but there is plenty of room for shooting.
The posts and walls don't get in the way. The guy at the counter
will say, "whatcha need". As you walk to the counter you will
notice a small room with pinball and video games on your left.
When you get the tray of balls use both hands incase it is cracked.
Check the tables carefully to get a good one, or one that looks
better that the rest of them. Its probably one of the two that
were on the right as you came in the door. Bring a friend with
you because the two of you will be the only one playing.
You may see someone come in to talk with the guy at the
counter but thatís about it. No load music. No noise from the
video games. Be cautious of the bathrooms. You can get a coke
from the machine. Plenty of conversation from the guy if you start
talking to him first if not, you won't know he is there.
Don't tell him he has an accent, that doesn't go over well.

Thatís about it.
I spent many days of my youth pushing balls around those tables
and probably on the same cloth that is on them now.

At any rate I think itís worth checking it out just for the fun of it.

Have fun.
Wish I could go with you.

I wish you could too - I need someone to play with. Thanks for the responses. Any others greatly appreciated. I'd try rooms further afield, but I don't think I'll be mobile.

Adios,
