Weirdly a new pool hall open literally around the corner from my house, in Chicago. I wasn’t ready to shoot with strangers when they opened earlier this summer due to the covid. I would just stand outside looking at those brand new diamonds. We will have fun but not till 2021
The same owner that took over, 'Marie's Golden Cue', made it into, Coffee bar/pool room, 'Surge'. The new room you refer to is, 'Surge ll'.
BTW, In the 40 years that, 'Chris's Billiards' has been open, the 4 owners never owned the building! At one time in the mid 90's - mid 2000's, without any alcohol, for a stretch of 4-5 years grossed a little over 1 million dollars a year, with just 55 tables!
