There's nothing fancy about this Northeast pool hall. No booze. No food to speak of. No flashing lights or live DJs. Fat Boy can lay claim to one simple boast: the finest collection of pool tables and cues in town. This is the place to shoot some serious stick with no distractions--and therefore no excuses. The decade-old, 20-table, two-story hall has the feel of a local institution. Beads for tallying wins and losses hang from the ceiling. A cloud of cigarette smoke continually lingers in the air. A gaggle of old-timers can usually be found taking in the bewildering action on one of the three-cushion billiards tables. And it's cheap too: You can shoot pool from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. for just $9.35 ($7.15 for seniors). Otherwise it's $4.50 an hour for solo shooters and $7.50 an hour for two or more players.
