Twelve Days of Shopping Fairview – Day 11
On the eleventh “shop Fairview” day… Rack ‘em up…all 11…well, actually it’s 12. River City Billiards takes you back to the new old days, your favorite corner stop for a game of pool. Tucked back in a nice little spot at 21414 Lorain Road, this place has six very nice Diamond Pro pool tables, a bar to pull up to, quiet lighting (without the smoke of old), and the loud click of a cue on the ball that breaks the bunch, hopefully to your advantage. This is one of those underrated hobbies – a sport that men or women can play in small teams, one-on-one, or on your own. It’s a leisurely game that can be highly competitive. Take Monday night 9-Ball League – just hanging out with a couple of friends, your own or some new ones, relaxing and playing pool, $11 a person, per week, starts each week at 7:30pm. And then there are tournament nights, like Thursdays – 9-Ball Chip Tournament, 7:30 starting time, $12 entry. Summertime (wow, when was it warm?) will find some at the Wednesday Night “Beat the Heat Special!” Play all night from 6pm to Midnight for only $10! Per person!!!
Owner Wally Kole has been at this for a while, and still thoroughly enjoys the game. Don’t know how to play or rusty? They offer pool instruction as well. Complete on-site cue repairs available or just drop off your cue. Services include replacing tips, ferrules, wraps, clean the shaft and more. Looking for a new cue? Stop in and look at the nice variety of new and gently used cues! They carry a collection of Nick Varner cues.
A pool cue makes a great gift for a seasoned player. And if you’re looking to give something “to do” rather than something to “wrap,” this is a great find for your dad, brother or sister, best buddy – schedule a night out over the cold winter months and try a new hobby, hone your game over a catch up conversation. It’s addictively relaxing. Rack ‘em up and shoot – that’d be the 12 balls after Christmas…..
