Just ignore this place on Friday and Saturday nights. Not only does the price per hour for playing pool double, but the yuppie and annoying frat-boy quotient quadruples. On the off days, however, you can play for five bucks an hour and have the place nearly to yourself till closing time at 2:00 a.m. Watching the work of quiet pros who bring their own cue covers can provide a welcome diversion to waiting during the lull until your partner decides to flail his cue. And Thalassa doesn't water down the drinks (but still you gotta watch them pour).
