The Billiard Company is the local pool hall. Recently redone, it now contains many more plasma screens and couches, giving it a yuppie-lounge vibe. Enjoy $5 drinks between 10pm and midnight as you work on your english. The music videos and young crowd can be distracting for the serious hustler, but make the place more hospitable for everyone else. The crowd skews super-slick, so bring your crew and party, or tune out the looping music videos and just play your game.
