I'm not that fat but any Food Show makes me drool.

Wifey watches and amazing on how much she can retain. She then makes me some concoction that is pretty tasty. I ask her where she learned that and she will mention some food show.

She made some Italian sammys for me one day that anyone would die for. Now, when we go out fishing, I always ask her to make them for the cooler.

Our hall thats closing this weekend makes pretty good food.

I have always maintained that the food part of a hall is very important.

Once someone leaves to eat elsewhere, they may not come back or at least for a couple of hours. You need that food money in your pocket.

Chips and chocolate bars don't do the trick.

Good stick to your ribs food does.

I agree with the need for food in a pool room, not only for the $ but to keep the players in the room.That is correct about once they leave who knows when they will be back.The best part is the players do not want to leave and the food does not need to be five star food. A room that offers fresh food , good sandwiches, Burgers, Dogs, wings and Pizza should keep most players happy.Beer is a big plus also.

Maybe in the old days halls could get away with just pool and snacks but these days, the back end needs to support the front end and vice versa.

You need alcohol and good food. Even if it is just a bowl of home made soup and a ham sandwich or chili and a bun.

Pretty much all places in Canada that I have been in whether it be a hall or bar, they all have VLTs. People that don't play pool will come in while they make the rounds for the gambling machines.

Our hall used to have a decent breakfast for the weekends that tourneys were held on. If your location is right, you can get the morning, coffee break and lunch crowd.

Every dime counts these days

I won't go or stay at a hall that doesn't have both alcohol and food. When I go, its for everything.

I watched the show last night. They showed a few lingering shots around the pool tables but the show was focused on the bar/restaurant downstairs. I checked out the website for the place and it looks like they have a small bar up stairs and several gold crowns. Any locals on here visit the place?

On the facebook page in the photo section they have a few pictures of John Schmidt and some promotional posters of an event he did there. Love to hear his take on the place :)

The tables look too close together imo.

The food at High Pockets is superb.

They have steaks, chicken, sandwiches, pizza. I mean it really is restaurant quality and freakin cheap too.

Obviously, Tracy doesn't want his players leaving to get something to eat.

He is sneaky.
