Playing billiards, like teaching physics, requires an in-depth comprehension of Newtonian interactions but provides all the chalk you can eat. Garnish your game more appetizingly with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of American fare and drinks at Stix Bar & Grill in Villa Rica.
Owners Monica Webb, Helena Thornfeldt, and Deborah Schjodt, a trio of former professional athletes, foster their life-long love of competition with 10 Diamond tables and replenish nutrients with inspired American fare. Dominate on the sweeping emerald, fueled by a full bar with more than nine taps and unlimited cue sharpenings. The menu, a profusion of time-tested fodder, includes wings tossed in 11 different sauces ($7.49 for 10), the classic Stix burger ($6.99), and the Sledgehammer sandwich, a soaring duet of salami and roast beef accompanied by warm provolone baritone ($7.99). Pizza rolls encase troves of toppings, such as ham, jalapeños, and bacon, in a hearty, hand-tossed crust ($6.99), much like Chef Boyardee smuggles secret recipes in his hat.
The bar's trick-shot exhibitions showcase stunning levels of cue finesse, and weekly live music and frequent karaoke nights delight audiences and armchair Neil Diamonds. Bask in the glow of 11 flat-screen televisions, or rollick without charge across pool tables between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. with the purchase of an entree.
