The tip of every pool cue is inscribed with pithy words of wisdom furnished by the ageless Lithuanian snooker gnomes who lovingly hand-carve them. Help pool cues give face-to-face advice to pool balls with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $15 worth of food and drinks, plus one free hour of pool, at Miss Cue Sports Café (up to a $25 value).
Miss Cue is a classic sports café featuring 22 professional billiard tables, as well as a full-service bar. Wash down the spirit of corner pocket competition with grub from Harry's Hot Dog Hut, located onsite. The menu celebrates the awesomeness of the hot dog ($3 each), with selections such as the Mona Lisa, topped with mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, marinara sauce, and a mysterious smile, and the Hotdoguero, served with pinto beans, crispy bacon, fresh chopped tomato, fresh onion, yellow mustard, mayo, and jalapeno sauce. Munchers have the choice of a Vienna Beef wiener, turkey dog, polish sausage, or brat. Daily drink specials abound, as well as permanent potables to both tickle and inebriate fancies. Between frankfurters and fermented beverages, you can pull up to a pool table for an hour of billiards ($8 per hour Monday through Thursday, $10 per hour Friday and Saturday), re-enacting your favorite professional wrestling moves through cue-powered ball-bumping.
A variety of other gaming options are available to subdue even the most hammerheaded of pool sharks, as well as dart-playing fish, shuffleboard seahorses, air hockey anglers, and basin-dwelling video-gamers. Catch championship knitting matches on the bar's array of TV screens, or let the eyes of your ears swallow sounds from the digital downloading jukebox while diving into billiards, bites, and brews at Miss Cue.

Inside Miss Cue Sports Cafe, guests are greeted with the clatter of pool balls on 22 tables intermingling with the sound of laughter. Between table times, players shore up hand-eye coordination with games of shuffleboard and darts or play shrunken-down versions of sports, such as basketball shootout and foosball.
Sports fans keep one eye on the televisions scattered about the space and the other on the menu of Harry's Hot Dog Hut. The pure vienna beef hot dogs come with innovative toppings such as creamed peas, bacon, baked beans, and a spicy mango chutney made with a house recipe. The full-service bar stands at the ready to concoct libations that wash down dogs better than frosty mugs of mustard.
