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: for $18, you get two hours of unlimited pool on one table (a $36 value) at Shoreline Billiards in Mountain View. All Groupon holders under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Readily accessible from Highway 101, Shoreline Billiards caters to both novice and seasoned shooters with a sea of traditional 9-foot pool tables. Swim with a school of your closet sharks and sink multi-hued pool balls into table pockets for up to two consecutive hours. Inject some groove into your game with the impressive anthology of jams on the Internet-fueled jukebox or beef up your billiard belongings inside Shoreline Billiards' pro shop. Those who are less interested in shooting stick can play games in the video arcade or enjoy icy beverages and hot snacks. Less traditional billiard tables, including 12-foot snooker tables, 10-foot carom tables, and controversial smelly-foot tables, are also available for play at Shoreline's spacious digs, but not included as part of this Groupon.
