Best dive to bring your billiards A-game to: Round Corner Tavern
Best of Sacramento 2013 writer’s pick
Here's how it works at the Round Corner Tavern: If you want to shoot some stick, write your name on the board. For the stiffest competition, try the pool table nearest to the bar. Ball-in-hand or kitchen scratch rules are defined by whoever owns the table. And you never, ever make fun of someone for bringing their own cue. And, as if the great music, quality food and surly Oakland Raiders fans aren't enough, the Deftones' favorite bar hasestablished itself as one of Sacramento's go-to spots for quality eight-ball competition.
