I took a business trip to the Phoenix, AZ area this week. Of course, I had to take a cue stick along. I decided to book a room at the Quality Inn in Tempe, AZ because I thought it was about a quarter mile away from Kolby’s. That would allow me to slip over and play some pool in the evenings. Turn’s out, the hotel was much closer; in fact, it actually shares a parking lot with Kolby’s. Here’s a picture of Kolby’s Corner Pocket from my hotel room!
It goes without saying that I ended up at Kolby’s Corner Pocket every night during the trip. On Wenesday night, I ended up shooting pool from about 7:00 until 2:30 in the morning. I’m still hurting from that one! Unfortunately, most of the students at ASU were preparing for finals, so Kolby’s was rather empty most of the time I was there. Oh well. I still got in a bunch of straight pool practice. Here’s a picture of Kolby’s during the day and at night. As usual, I forgot to take any pictures inside. Good thing I don’t make a living doing this sort of thing! I pretty much lived at Kolby’s during my off hours. Oh yeah, Scott Frost was in town but I didn’t see him at Kolby’s so I didn’t have a chance to meet him. Darn!
Kolby’s Looks like a nice place. How many tables do they have?
Thanks for the question. They had 10 Brunswick Gold Crowns, 1 Diamond, and 5 Valley coin-ops. I’m posting an update in a few minutes, so stay tuned.
