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 to Peacock Billiards. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of billiards time on a single table for up to three players.
- For $12, you get $28 worth of billiards time on a single table for four or more players.
At Peacock Billiards, all ages of players rack, hook, and sink colourful spheres for up to two hours of play on 30 furniture-quality pool tables. Each night of the week, visitors linger in the carpeted, wood-paneled room until late while eyes wander across colourful murals and minds contemplate interpretive dances depicting Newton's third law. While not included in this deal, guests can flex wrist muscles in games of foosball and table tennis, browse wireless internet, and hone shooting-arm accuracy by juggling coffee drinks, beer, and nachos. The hall also sells professional billiards supplies and tables in an effort to reverse declining felt levels in private homes.
Like the colourful fan of its namesake's tail feathers, diamonds and triangles of billiard balls nestle into racks on Peacock Billiards' tables. A grid of 30 tables in an array of sizes and colours populates the room, surrounded by cushy leather couches and bright murals. Beneath the clatter of sunken shots can be heard the rhythmic tap of table-tennis matches and the furious spinning of foosball handles. The James Joyce Bistro resides in the corner, where patrons sitting in circular booths enjoy drinks and nachos served in cored-out copies of Dubliners.
