The expression "behind the eight 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 one hour of pool for two plus a voucher for $25 towards food and drinks (a $36.50 value) at Snooker Shack, located on 8th Street East.
Snooker Shack lures pool-hall marvels with billiards tables, a family-friendly atmosphere, and a menu of classic bar fare that is available 365 days a year. Chase wily eight balls with a friend or friendly postman ($11.50) while snacking on some crinkle-cut fries ($3.33). The dry ribs heat benumbed tongues with boneless seasoned dry ribs, ranch dip, and a zesty lemon wedge ($9.29), and the herbivore nachos season crispy tortillas with tomatoes, green onions, black olives, and jalapeños ($7.86). The Burger of the Rings responsibly tops a 100 per cent Canadian ground beef patty with two crispy onion rings and sides the sandwich with fries or a caesar salad ($8.81). Snooker Shack also wraps cheese steaks and grilled or crispy chicken, like a newborn fairy, in a tortilla before tucking it in with ranch or caesar dressing ($10.21).
