There’s something about drinking a brew or two that aids in seeing the geometry of pool-ball angles. Beer is billiards magic. Aside from the kegs of eight draft beers at West Valley Billiards, not much has changed since it opened in 1979. It’s one of two places in the state to play golf (not the walk-ruining, sand-trap-ridden sport) on a professional-size table. And, of course, WVB offers a bevy of regulation-size billiards tables on the bar side and smaller ones (for the kiddos) on the all-ages side.
