Al's Billiards does nothing but no-frills pool. The place could use a fresh carpet, a new paint job, and maybe a few windows knocked out for a proper disinfectant by sunlight, but if you really want sparkles, you're probably not a real pool sharp. Folks go to Al's Billiards for the miles of luscious green felt stretched tight over professional tables, the crisp knock of cue on phenolic resin undefiled by the drunken ravings of the late-night bar crowd. There's no alcohol, which might be a deal-breaker for some, but actually makes this place the perfect scene for the serious shooter, the just-underage, or the heavily pregnant. Rumor has it that no one uglier than Al the owner is allowed to play here.
