While out on the town for a girls night, my friend Lauren and I decided to visit this awesome bar to play some pool. We arrived to a parking lot, and roadway, filled with cars. A little curious, since it was a Monday night, we headed in and found out that there were tournaments happening inside. We were informed by a blonde waitress to come back in a few hours, that there may be tables open.
We came back about two hours later, and to our dismay, there were still no tables open. We were informed thusly by a brunette waitress that the tournament players didn’t normally give up their tables, and that we’d have to wait until about midnight, if we were lucky.
A little defeated, we climbed into chairs at the end of the bar, and picked up a special menu only found at the bar. Inside, the menu boasted special house drinks, desserts, a kids menu (which is odd to be found on the bar), and various beers. My eye was caught on the $5 special drinks page, and so I ordered the Wild Cherry - a cocktail made with cherry vodka, ginger ale, and grenadine, topped with a cherry. It was made in a regular beer tumbler, so I was pleased at the amount I was getting for the price. I also tried a drink called the Tin Cup - a mix of sweet tea vodka and pink lemonade. I didn’t care for this drink as much; the tea had a stout flavor, and the pink lemonade tasted watered down. After my friend had decided upon a shot of Jose Cuervo and a beautiful martini concoction made specially by the bartender (made with coconut rum, pineapple juice, and grenadine), we ordered boardwalk fries, which were french fries with chili and queso. The fries were good, the queso had definitely been sitting out, and the chili had been re-heated. I asked for ranch on the side, and it helped with the hiding some of the negative flavors of the food.
Overall, the visit was okay. If not for the silly bartender, our night really wouldn’t have been as good. Snookers is good for pool, cheap (sometimes good) drinks, and some good food. I will have to try it one more time to really get the full effect.
