Billiards continues a tradition of games based on hitting a ball with a stick, such as baseball, golf, and peg-leg kickball. Send spheres hurling toward victory with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a billiards package for two at The Brass Monkey (an $86.42 value including HST). The billiards package includes:
- Five hours of play (a $56.50 value including HST)
- One pitcher of beer (a $17.50 value including HST)
- One pound of wings (a $12.42 value including HST)
The Brass Monkey models itself after New York–style bars, encouraging revelry with 16 billiard tables, darts, draft beers, a menu of pub fare, and live music. Pool pairs grab sticks and a trash-talk phrase book as they deliberate play on one of four 9' Crown tables, four 7' Brunswick tables, or eight 7' coin-operated Valley tables ($1.50/game). As solids and stripes scuttle across the felt, players snack on a pound of jumbo wings spun in choice of sauce including four levels of hot, honey garlic, smoky chipotle, dry Cajun, or island jerk, plus a choice of ranch of blue cheese for dipping. Six draft beer varieties from Rickard's Red to Budweiser fill pitchers and refuel quests to secure an evening's worth of bragging rights or a full chalk beard. On Fridays and Saturdays, cue comrades can catch performances from original and cover bands, and Thursday nights, an open mic showcases local talent. The Brass Monkey also supplies free dartboards, though patrons must supply their own darts.
