Send me an e-mail mwsmith4@hotmail.com and we will play some. The best is Gate City Billiards(check the web site. There are others Jakes by the school UNCG. A few private rooms which are not difficult to get into.

It's been years but breaktimes has a pretty laidback environment. I forget their tables. Coliseum's one table is monster. Go during the day, when there is less traffic and less smoke. It really is a treat to play on that table. I hope it's still there.

Make sure to take a stroll around UNCG. Then, at night you can have a cup of coffee on Tate street. There is a hall on that street too. I'm not sure if its still there.

Breakers has 10 4 1/2 x 9 tables, 7 Gold Crowns and 3 Diamonds. It's a nice friendly place.

Breaktime changed the name to Breakers 4-5 yrs ago now.

Coliseum billiards had the Connelly Ultimate table...2 inch slate.

It's not safe to walk around Tate St, or Florida St after dark....has been that way for a few years now.

That's sad. It's a nice playing table, I could never handle it.

The table, and Coliseum Billiards both are still there.

The table is Eddie's (owner) baby...he's got it tweaked for 1 hole. He's a hell of a guy!

Couldn't meet a nicer bunch of pool players (or guys) than at Breakers...(go there!!) Afternoon ring games at times also.

Not to mention the bartender...!

Tate St., near UNCG is perfectly safe, as safe as anywhere. If your not looking for trouble you shouldn't find any. Gate City Billiards is where I mostly play. If you stop in to Gate City say hello to Don, the proprietor. They have a mixture of 9 footers and bar boxes, friendly room. Coliseum Billiards is little sportier place but it has character. If you get in any action at the Coliseum with FlatTop, make sure he posts. Earl used to hang out there a lot and I saw FlatTop air barrel Earl and believe me everyone in there knows who Earl is. Earl jumped on top of the table, the man is an athlete! The owner Eddie is a nice guy.

Won't be getting any action with flattop...for a while. He's on a extended vacation from what I understand.
