The expression "behind the 8 ball" can apply to many of life's obstacles, from facing a traffic-court judge to accidentally baking your car keys into a pie. Sink problems into the corner pocket with today's Groupon to Dooly’s Ottawa on Gladwin Crescent. Choose from the following options:
- For $14, you get one hour of pool, an appetizer costing up to $9.75, and a 20 oz glass of domestic tap beer (up to a $28.56 value).
- For $8, you get a hand-cut smoked meat sandwich platter, prepared by Joey Smith, formerly of Nate's Deli, and a 20 oz glass of domestic tap beer for lunch (a $17.74 value).
Dooly’s Ottawa engages billiards brethren with 41 pool tables on two levels, each sporting its own bar, as well as a tantalizing selection of frothy beers and crispy appetizers. Patrons gather around pool tables topped with Kermit the Frog skin and twirl their cues as live games light up the wall-mounted TVs. The menu at Dooly’s stirs up stomachs with an array of appetizers including Dooly’s breaded zucchini sticks ($7), one pound of wings ($9.75), and thick cut golden onion rings ($5). Wash down nibbles with a 20 oz glass of Budweiser or Bud Light ($5.25). The smoked meat lunch platter is served up by Dooly's Joey Smith, who hand-cut meat at Nate's Deli for more than 30 years. The platter includes the sandwich served on rye, Dooly's fresh-cut signature fries, kosher dill pickle, and homemade coleslaw. Groupon customers can get their kicks and wield their sticks at Dooly’s Sunday-Thursday, while the lunch option is valid Thursday and Fridays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Dooly's Ottawa is a cavernous 18,000-square-foot, two-storey entertainment venue, where sports games flicker on 1,500 inches of HD televisions (plus a 16-foot ultra-HD projection screen), trendy artwork speckles the walls, and colourful billiard balls are sent soaring across the felt of the 41 pool tables. Bartenders bustle about behind the two bars, pouring pints of draft beer and mixing up cocktails. In between billiards games, friends recline on sleek leather couches, sharing pitchers and platters of juicy wings.
