Historically, green felt has only had two applications: lowering friction on pool tables' surfaces and giving life to Kermit the Frog. Enjoy the sportier side of felt with today's Groupon: for $20, you get 90 minutes of pool (a $21 value), two appetizers (a $10 value), and two drinks (up to a $14 value) at The Big Kahuna in Huntington (up to a $45 total value).
The Big Kahuna’s club-like environs invite competitive duos to duke it out on emerald billiards tables before chilling on a cluster of couches with cocktails and tasty bites. Worthy of hosting the American Pool Association’s fastidious players, who insist on finely-stretched felt and cues hewn from the throne of Henry VIII, fully outfitted pool tables allow players to chalk up for 90 minutes of sport. A menu of $5 appetizers, including savory cordon-bleu bites, crispy potato skins, and spicy wings, fuels rival appetites. Players can also quench their thirst after games and heated staring contests with any beverage, from fizzy sodas to mixed drinks stirred from a full bar. In addition, bartenders pour a range of frothy brews such as Blue Moon, Killian’s Irish Red, Heineken, and Stella Artois. Enjoy suds at the granite-topped bar surrounded by 11 big-screen TVs, or recline on a plush couch and feed your appetizers to the fireplace’s hungry talking flames.
The Big Kahuna
Most pool halls evoke the smoky, timeworn atmosphere of a friend’s basement. The Big Kahuna decided to go a more upscale route. Stylish sofas flank a stone fireplace, wrought-iron lamps cast a warm glow over every table, and 11 big-screen TVs broadcast seasonal sporting events from spacious ochre walls. Alongside the hall’s billiards and ping-pong tables, a granite and brick bar furnishes icy sips of Budweiser, Corona, and other domestic brews to the pulsing soundtrack of ceramic orbs exploding apart. The hall’s kitchen stays open until the bar closes to balance libations with a menu of buffalo wings, steak-fajita wraps, and plates of chicken parmesan.
