Historically, green felt has only had two applications: lowering friction on pool tables' surfaces and giving life to Kermit the Frog. Witness the green stuff in action with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of drinks and pool at Mill Cue Club in Tempe.
Endearing servers at Mill Cue Club, a modern pool hall sporting 10 tables within century-old brick walls, welcome patrons with convivial smiles and a barrage of chilled drinks. Billiards battlers ($8–$12/hour) can refuel with bottled domestic beer ($4) or long island iced tea ($5) as they watch sports games on flat-screen televisions or tap cue balls to find out if they're hollow. Servers pour cascades of well liquors ($4.50+) or upper-shelf liquors ($5+) into mixed drinks, and an outdoor smoking patio gives puffers a pleasant area in which to converse via smoke signal.
