A Magical week in CHICAGO - 12-07-2019, 08:33 PM

Recently, a friend and I visited Chicago and we had a great time. I wrote about it on my blog if you are interested in reading it. I've written a little over 30 stories, mostly about pool but other stories as well. The blog is located at http://joeyapoolcommentator.blogspot.com/?view=flipcard

Of course Chris's Billiards and Red Shoes Billiards are in the story on Chicago. With Flipcard, you can click on the photographs and it will then show the titles.

Merry Christmas everyone.

Great read Joey! Chicago is a great city and with my oldest living there I will be there plenty in the future. Funny that I go about four times a year to the windy city but have yet to make it to Chris's or Red Shoes. I have been to Surge a couple of times.

It seems that the metro area has many pool and 3-C rooms sprinkled around I even found a snooker room.

Glad you had a winning visit and I will look you up next time I go south, I have improved my game since the last time you kicked my butt.

Joey,

Your stories never fail to be great! Always a pleasure to read. A nice Christmas present for the forum indeed!

I suspect we will talk before Christmas but just in case I will take this time to wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas.

Merry Christmas to you also Hu. I am hoping to make it out your way this coming year and we can catch up or catch gators.

Thanks for the great write up for on the Chicago pool scene. I grew up in Chicago and love it here. You must be pretty good to win the iron man at Red Shoes. Next time your here, give everyone some advance notice so you don’t leave with all the cash.

It would be great to see you again. Since you have improved I guess I will have to ask for weight.

Hahaha. I think someone sprinkled some pixie dust on my cue.

Chicago is a lot larger city than I am used to. The amount of traffic was hard to fade. But I missed out on visiting Attack Athletics. Maybe next time.
