Has anyone ever been to Dr. Cue's Pool Hall in Shoreline, Washington, near Seattle? What kind of place is it?

Unfortunately, although I will remedy the situation with my next visit to Washington State, I am not personally familiar with his facility. However, hoping that this will prove of some value, I found the following address on the WWW.
Its a good serious Pool hall. Divided into a front and back room, with a wall (with windows) and open doorway between them. Forget about the back room.
Nice Bruswick tables in the front room. Good ball sets. Very nice wooden racks. Diamond full table lighting. Table #1 is triple shimmed, for playing one-pocket. No hard-break games allowed on that table. But the rest of the tables can be used for any game you want.
Let me know when you are going to be up here. I can't guarantee I can make the time (and the trip through Seattle traffic), but I can try. /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif

There was a comedian on David Letterman last night. I happened to tune in during the middle of his spot and didn't catch his name.
<font color=orange>He said his social life is not that good, he hasn't had sex since he was an Altar Boy....</font color=orange><font color=red>....</font color=red><font color=purple>....</font color=purple>but I digress.
At the end of his bit, he got the usual plugs. Dave said the chap will be appearing at the Mohegan Sun Casino, some other place, and then he said something about Dr. Cue's Billiards in Seattle. I didn't quite hear the whole plug and I was left wondering what this comedian doing Letterman and a Casino gig was going to be doing at Dr. Cues. Maybe he plays pool there and it was a reference to something said earlier in the bit!?
Does anyone know any pool playing comedians? I just thought it was interesting. He's a very funny guy, and if he plays pool I could just imagine him keeping everybody cracking up.
Yeah, I've met him before. His name is...um...I forget right now. But I have met him, as he has been friends with my best friend for some 20 years now. I know the name will pop back into my head later.
I was in Vegas with the owners of Dr. Cue's when that show first ran. If it is the same show. But he was on David Letterman, and he mentioned Dr. Cue's by name. The guys that own Dr. Cue's were HAPPY!
Pool playing Comedians? One of the owners of Amsterdam Billiards in New York is a comedian. David Brenner, I think. And how about Jackie Gleason? He was a great comic actor.
As for actors in general, Paul Sorvino and Jerrry Oerbauch (sp?), both from "Law and Order" are Pool enthusiasts, and Sorvino has even been on the cover of Billiards Digest.

Hey, Rackmup is a comedian. /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif /ccboard/images/icons/crazy.gif /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif
I used to go to Dr. cues quite a bit 3 years ago. It's a nice place.... but very smokey and alcohol free. There are about 12 decent simonis covered gold crowns in the front room. There is a back room but it's for rap music and teenagers. The owner loves one pocket and will play at the drop of a hat
When I was there they hosted a tuesday night open 9-ball tournament drawing the likes of Mike Zimmerman, JD, Kris Iverson and occationally Dan Louie..
Yeah, the regional tournaments around here are TOUGH. I'm not talking about the weekly tournaments, as you were referring to, but the occasional big regional tournaments. The last time there was a big regional tournament here was, actually, at Dr. Cue's. And here is a list of some that attended:
- A 3 time Reno Open champ, who also has finished 3rd in the U.S. Open.
- A Canadian Champ
- A World Champ, who has also had high finishes in the Reno Open, and the U.S. Bar table championships.
- A U.S. Bar Table 9-ball champ, who has also been 2nd in the U.S. Bar Table championships twice.
- A player who was once ranked as high as 32 in Europe for Snooker, and has had multiple perfect games.
- Another Snooker player who has had perfect games, and has played in the world Snooker championships more than once.
- An up-and-coming pro that has beat a numer of big names over the past year.
- Another up-and-coming pro that has won some of the regional tournaments in this area, whose participants included those I have listed here.
- A number of semi-pro/STRONG A players who have won regional tournaments in this area, whose participants included those I have listed here.
- A bunch of good A players that don't have day jobs, and each have some wins against some well-known pro's.
By the time you get to the good B+'s with day jobs, like myself, the tournaments around here are TOUGH. Very rare to see even a good B+ make it to the money in the big regional tournaments around here.
But it's great experience. /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif
