You should know
Chris was in town, so he, Brian, and I went out for the evening. We stopped here before dinner.
We used to play a bit of pool in college – not enough to compete on any kind of level, but enough to practice the basics. Now, pool is a good go-to activity for a night out.
The tables, balls, and cues all seemed to be in good condition. The lighting was good. The scorekeeping cords were a bit on the low side, so we occasionally hit them with our cues, but you could just as easily blame that on us. For the most part, we had a good time and were happy with the establishment.
Then we went to the front counter to pay. We waited a good ten minutes for an employee to show up so that we could pay. We were actually about a minute from walking out. When a man finally came to wait on us (read: take our money), he made a snide comment about how we could have taken a few hundred dollars out of the register. And this wasn’t in the sense of, “Hey, this was stupid of me, thanks for waiting.” It was nasty and rude.
You can do better
Had this incident not occurred, I would highly recommend the place. We had a very pleasant time, and no problems with any of the equipment. Still, we – and you – deserve good service.
