Like an Easter egg hunt at a chicken-pox ward, billiards asks you to pocket striped orbs while trying not to scratch. Keep your mind on the game with today's Groupon: for $18, you get two hours of pool (a $25 value) and a pitcher of beer (an $11.25 value) at Dooly's (a $36.25 total value).
Voted Best Place to Play Pool by the Scope, Dooly's encompasses a sprawling billiards hall brimming with upscale pool tables. Mellifluous tones travel from a stereo system toward ear trumpets as players wage one-on-one billiard battles and attempt to pocket a secret target during games of pea pool. At the bar, a stream of Molson draft rains from the tap and tops off a pitcher of beer perfect for quenching the thirst of highly concentrated nine-ball players. Players watch TV and exchange respectful head nods while lounging on sofas in front of a fireplace after games, as their doppelgangers play video games and both classic and modern board games. Though not included in today's Groupon, Dooly's serves up an assortment of wine, snacks, and eats.
