I really like the sign here at the former WECO Billiards. It has a similar aesthetic to Varsity Billiards and Red Wing Rollerway.

This site for the current owners of the building (note the clever URL) says it was built originally as a grocery. It was still operating as a billiard hall in the February 1997 phonebook, but by the time of the next one I have here at home (February 2007), the listing was gone. Since then it appears to have been a thrift store, and now houses a number of operations as detailed at the previous link.

  1. 1997 sounds about right. I lived in the area during the late 90s and would go there from time to time. They also served breakfast which was decent but nothing to brag on. The interior was very plain but it had high ceilings and plenty of pool tables. Jillian's in the Vista probably played a role in their closing but Weco was much more affordable.
