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.
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!
