Danny is great, I do not think he is there all the time, no tournaments as of yet, call before you go to be sure, i know it is lots of miles for you..

Hey guys, sorry to revive this dead thread, but I have just now gotten settled in and will be back to playing pool at almost full speed. I live in DC proper in the Cleveland Park neighborhood, but I do not mind driving. I have to briefly drive into work tomorrow morning, but was planning on spending the rest of the day at First Break. Unfortunately, I see that there is an Action Pool Tour event going on tomorrow. Will that make it unlikely that I can get a table to practice on tomorrow? If so, I was planning on heading to Breakers in Herndon to take advantage of their special. Any advice?

Best,
Krishna

0% chance getting a table on the first day of any APT event at first break.
First break only has 9 tables I believe. On the 2nd day when it's down to final four or
whatever, you can get a table. Breakers special is great. Personally I'm gonna go watch the APT.

Welcome to DC. Atomic Billiards is a fun neighborhood bar type place in Cleveland Park, with 6 8' tables and a good beer selection. You're a short drive to Bedrock Billiards in Adams Morgan (if you don't mind the bus, one goes from Cleveland Park to the corner of 18th/Columbia). Bedrock does have some light action now and then, and good tables.

But for real pool, you do have to get out of the city.

Creedo is correct about getting a table at First Break. All tables will be used for the tourney. I'll probably go to Breakers on Sat. afternoon, assuming the weather isn't really nice. I usually place donwstairs (non-smoking area).

Ahh.. Bedrock Billiards in Adams Morgan was my old haunt. I miss that place.. Really nice guys working there and not a bad place to be on a weekend nice if you like smoozing and darts. Not much action but they took good care of their tables back in the day.

My company actually had a party there when they first opened. I don't know if they're still open or not since I don't drive by there anymore. It was an ok place. I remem the tables had felt cloth...

BTW, welcome to the area Krishna!
