Sports bar that serves pub food.
From time to time, we watch the 1961 pool hall epic "The Hustler," staring Paul Newman as Fast Eddie Felson; there's something about the green felt of a pool table that gives us delusions of grandeur. So we should probably stay away from The Fox and Hound, with its acres of felt and 10 tournament-quality billiard tables, lest we end up a bitter shell of a man like Felson. The Fox and Hound's tables are available to rent per hour, and are in a clean, friendly, well-lit setting. Though off-the-rack cues are available at the tables, you can rent more Fast Eddie-worthy sticks at the front. If you're not interested in shooting pool, the Fox and Hound also features a NORAD-worthy collection of flat screen televisions showing sports of all sorts, a full bar and a generous pub-style menu. The beer selection is fairly extensive, too; and they offer drink specials.
