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 $9, you get a two-hour billiards outing at The Break Room (up to a $31.50 total value). The package includes:
- Two hours of billiard play (a $20 value)
- One appetizer (up to a $6.50 value)
- One pitcher of soda (a $5 value)<p>
Cue balls scatter pyramids of racked balls on The Break Room’s 16 9-foot billiard tables or six 7-foot bar tables, inviting patrons to test their angle accuracy while noshing on classic appetizer fare. A jukebox stocked with thousands of songs serenades guests as they take aim across the 9-foot tables with provided cues or personalized sequin batons. The venue’s selection of bar activities offers patrons a full range of nightly entertainment, fostering friendly competition with two dartboards, a foosball table, and an assortment of video games. Cue wielders waiting for their next turn can enjoy a sampling of the club’s bar fare, filling cups with any of the 10 different types of soda while snacking on chili cheese nachos, hot wings, onion rings, or jalapeño poppers.
Guests can sample 1 of the bar’s 44 varieties of draft and bottled beer (not included in the price of this Groupon) while eying the night’s game on the 60-inch TV, a big enough screen for the entire crowd to watch with new friends without heckling them to borrow their contact lenses.

At the Break Room, players grab a cue and maneuver past a foosball table and boxing machine to face off at one of 16 9-foot pool tables. Tunes pump from jukeboxes and LCD televisions readily show the sporting event du jour in a space permeated by free WiFi.
