Red Shoes Billiards is in Alsip Illinois....Basically a 20 minute cab ride from Midway Airport. The address is 12009 S. Pulaski St. Alsip, Illinois 60803 (tel.708-388-3700)....Midway Airport is in the 6300 block of South Cicero ave. Soooo....Red Shoes is approx. 65-70 blocks away (8-9 miles ish). Full bar and kitchen...pool room stays open til 4:00 am on Fridays and Saturdays. Any players (that ain't at DCC already) that are in Chicago will be at Red Shoes tonight.

that's 20 min in normal weather. not in blizzard rush hour traffic. If you get in a cab right now be prepared to drop some coin and at least an hour.

You aren't in a place where you can walk anywhere either. If you go west on 55th there are a few bars. Metro mix says Bohica Bar and Grill has a pool table.

Bohica Bar
5518 S. Archer Ave

Personally I wouldn't recommend going out around midway, but I don't know what crowd you're used to.

Red Shoes may be your best bet, but if it's snowing anywhere near what we're getting a little farther up north be prepared for a long haul...

Be REAL careful around Midway, whenever I drive to it I lock the doors of the car! It's a tough area, if your at the airport you are safer staying put, forget pool..

Well if you can make it south of there a few miles I'd invite you to the Illinois Billiard Club as my guest.

Right around midway is hit or miss. Head a little west to any bars off of archer in Garfield ridge and you'll be alright. The closest REAL place to play would be Illinois billiard club( as someone else already suggested) on Archer ave. In willow springs

Thanks for the suggestions. I was staying at the Hampton Inn near Midway (65xx Cicero Ave). Several other hotels in the area. Traffic was terrible, and I wouldn't have ventured to anything that wasn't within 5 minutes of there.

Hopefully another time I'll be in the area again when the weather is more cooperative, and I can make it to some of those suggested venues!
