Historically, green felt has only had two applications: lowering friction on pool tables' surfaces and giving life to Kermit the Frog. Keep an eye on the 8-ball with today's Groupon to Fast Eddy's Billiards in Capitola. Choose between the following options:

  • For $13, you get two hours of pool (up to a $24 value) and two beers (up to a $9 value; up to a $33 total value).

Owner Richard Cady, an ex-pro pool shark, presides over Fast Eddy's panoply of 19 regulation-size pool tables, which occupy two levels of his 7,000-square-foot, all-ages facility. Two hours of cue-ball crushing transpires across tables crafted in a trio of different sizes, allowing ample time and space to accommodate classic pool games and bouts of nine-ball played with telephone polls and painted boulders. Trash-talkers can chalk up cues and tongues for added abrasion before rinsing them off with domestic and imported suds from Fast Eddy's full-service spirit station. A quintet of satellite TVs illumines the competition, as do the facility's blinking battalion of arcade games, which count PGA Golf and Rush 2049 among their glittering ranks.

While not included with today's deal, Fast Eddy's also sates corner-pocket marksmen with a menu of casual grub including chicken wings ($7.85) and cheese sticks ($6). Foster friendly competition with foosball, beer pong, and darts, or select your favorite rousing sing-along or dial-up modem shriek from the Internet jukebox. Pupils can nab a PhD in pool from Cady himself, who often bestows his sagacious counsel beneath the globular beacons of a burnished-wood bar.

Fast Eddy's Billiards

Picture a pool hall. Wood-paneled walls catch the light of suspended billiards lamps, which illuminate clusters of tables—19 of them to be exact. And these tables are not kiddie sized or Astroturf topped; these are regulation tables: fit for aimless amateurs and seasoned professionals alike. This is Fast Eddy's Billiards, where fun-seekers can revel not only in friendly and competitive games of pool, but also at dartboards, foosball tables, pinball machines, and beer-pong setups.

A former billiards professional still hangs around this scene, giving newbies a crash course on the basics of pool play. Above the din, neon signs rattle off the names of domestic and imported beers—available by the glass and by the pitcher—and a kitchen attendant preps bar-style snacks such as jalapeño poppers, onion rings, chicken wings, and breaded zucchini strips. Free WiFi can occupy compulsive email senders, and an Internet jukebox keeps carousers bopping with tunes of choice.

Customer Reviews

Great place! This place is big, has a lot of regulation size pool tables that are in excellent condition, and even has a few of the smaller, coin-operated ones. Fast Eddy's has a great atmosphere, provides a jukebox for loud music, and is a fun place overall!
