True true, aren't there any PH with deals for certain nights? For example, one of the local PH has free pool for two hours on Friday and Saturday nights.

Another use to offer free pool on Monday, Wednesday and Sunday night if you purchase $10 of food. Hubby and his friend would play for 5-6 hours on Mondays and Wednesdays and pay $10 each. Isn't that an incredible deal?

can i move? i'd like to move now. yeah, moving is nice.

i don't think there're any PHs out in socal that offers dinner deals or pool specials. only some PHs out here serve dinner at all, let alone food. most offer only basic snacks or soggy microwave chows. yuck. i know there are some that offer monthly memberships, but not dinner deals. wait . . . am i turning . . . green??

Move to the Boston area? I don't think so. After you experiencing your first Nor'easter, you'll be packing and heading back to SoCal.
