I’m going to get a little nostalgic right here for just a second, OK?
[The Billiard Club. Davie, FL]
I have so many awesome memories of this place! Playing pool with pretty much all the important people in my high school life. Smoking cigarettes under age. Making bad decisions. I couldn’t wait to move away from that town, but I would have taken that rednecky pool hall with me, if I could have. I hope the Billiard Club stays there forever.
Me and my friends used to always play three songs on the jukebox, though I’m only 100% certain about what two of them were. I’ll take a stab at the third one, though:
- Lounge Act
- Papa Don’t Take No Mess
- The Golden Road – This is the one I’m not sure on. It probably was a Dead song, tho, and if it was, it was this one. Maybe Jia remembers.
Do you have a place like that?
