One of my favorite things to do is play pool. I started playing when I was a wee lad. We had a pool table at our house for a part of my life, when I turned 18 I was able to hit the tables at the local pool halls back home. Paying by the hour sure beats paying per game.

When I came to Lansing, my buddy and I played pool just about every single day. It was a hobby that we enjoyed together. We had a lot of fun at Tripper's, Reno's East, Reno's West, Champion's and many other local bars and restaurants that had pool tables.

Recently, my wife and I have been talking about doing something different. Although pool is not new to me, it is to her. As we were chatting about playing pool, it hit me. Where can I go to play pool nowadays in the Lansing area. Tripper's is gone, Reno's West is gone too. Reno's East is still open and there are other locations throughout the area we can go to.

Do you like playing pool? Maybe we can shoot a game together. There are some local establishments that offer pool tables that you can play. Some are hourly, most are per game. If you and I play together, we're playing tournament rules, ball in hand. Call your shots, if you are shooting a combo, you better call it. Bank shot, call it. Hold up, this is supposed to be a hobby for me.

I think my wife and I will enjoy playing pool at these Lansing area locations.
