Tom,

If it's not too far from York, I may go see this and, of course, give you all the low down. Just as a note, after Earl had his "stones" removed, it may have slowed him down a bit, who knows?

Just kidding. /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Cycopath,

Hey, I guess that does have a double meaning but I was referring to having Kidney stones. I would never say Earl doesn't have the "Stones" but, then again, maybe you're on to something there....

For those of you that are considering coming, I would suggest you do. After travelling coast to coast , and from room to room, this is by far the nicest Billiard establishment I have ever seen. The room is equipped with 14 Gabriel's Vector tables, and also 9 Gabriel's bar tables, and also a 10,000 sq' restaurant and lounge, a stage and dance floor with the best live bands the East Coast has to offer. Also included is over 100 TV's, and lots of friendly staff. Check out the chandeliers in this joint. It is truly a sight to be seen. Hope to see you all there. Any questions? /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Earl hasn't calmed down that much.He was up to his old tricks at the BCA OPEN.First round against my hometown boy Jeff Kennedy.Jeff had to call in an official to tell him to sit down and get away from the table.Earl decides to freak out!Tell's him he has no right to tell the World Champ to sit down,he can still be a clown.

Wow, sounds real nice. I like my pool halls without all the other racket a restaurant might bring, but it does sound like a nice place.

Some people have all the luck. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif I just wish I could get to any pool hall more often then 2 times a month. /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif

The "eatertainment" area is separated from the pool side. There is even a room in the back that contains all the seating for "sweaters row" and 3 or 4 tables with its own bathroom, for all the action seekers. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

sounds more like an entertainment room than a billiard room. somehow, i don't see dance floors/live bands mixing with billiards.:)
