Playing billiards requires an intimate knowledge of geometry, just like building a house or hiding in the corners of circular rooms. Exercise arithmetical ability with today’s Groupon at The Brass Monkey. Choose between the following options:
- For $39, you get a pool table for five hours of billiards, a pitcher of beer, and a pound of wings (a $86.42 value).
- For $49, you get a yearlong unlimited pool membership (a $1,040 value).
The Brass Monkeys assembles pool sharks, beer connoisseurs, and wing aficionados for myriad billiard rounds on one of its 16 tables. Partakers can choose among four 9-foot Crown tables, four 7-foot Brunswick tables, and eight 7-foot coin-operated Valley tables for five-hour sessions of solids and stripes or unlimited yearlong play. After customers sink the evening’s final eight ball or finish eating all the chalk, a 1-pound pile of wings slathered in one of eight zesty sauces and a pitcher of draft beer await salivating mouths. Four new free dart tables coax clientele bull’s-eyes, and Thursday open-mic night and Friday and Saturday night live music gather the region’s top original songwriters, cover bands, and punk rock piccolo quartets for engaging performances. Members can hone bank shot skills seven days a week from opening until 8 p.m.
