From the AZBilliards forum:

Another End of an Era (http://forums.azbilliards.com/showthread.php?t=36380)

Some points:

* Amsterdam Billiards bought Corner Billiards. Amsterdam Billiards West will close at the end of the year. "Corner Billiards" will reopen after its $2 million renovation in November.

* You should remove any cues in the lockers at Corner Billiards.

* The employees of Corner Billiards will be out of a job come tomorrow.

Indeed, a sad day, although not totally unexpected. It has been clear for a while that business wasn't what it used to be. I've gotten used to it as a kind of second home, and I don't think it will be the same once it turns over to new ownership, even if it is still a pool hall. At least there's always the many fond memories, not the mention my husband who I met there. Who says you can't find a good man in a pool hall?

We'll be there tonight to pick up some cues and say goodbye, then I guess it's the end of an era, Alas.

Regards to all,
Abigail
