    Finding Places to Play

    In the Chicago area alone, I can probably think of half a dozen bars, taverns, etc... that have beautiful diamond tables. However, it is generally very difficult to find these places through traditional means (yellow pages, google, etc...). Just a couple weeks ago, I walked into a bar on the...

    I was thinking about possibly purchasing a Searing cue. While I understand that it is almost impossible to order one new, there do seem to be a few that come up for sale now and then. My question is, for a relatively new (built after 2000), 4 point, veneered, Searing cue in good to excellent...

    GC IV table roll

    I own a 13 year old Gold Crown IV. I bought it new in 2000 and it has only seen moderate recreational use in my house. However, due to several work relocations, it has been broken down, reassembled, and recovered no less than 4 times during the past 10 years. Furthermore, for about 3 of those...
