I am excited to announce stop # 2 of my Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour, “The Hudson Valley Fall Classic”, Sat & Sun Sept 30 & Oct 1 at our newest location, The Spot Billiards Cafe-Lounge in Nanuet NY. The Spot has quickly become one of the east coasts premier rooms. Owners, Rhys & Lenore Donavan Chen, have succeeded in opening a very upscale room which caters to the needs of everyone. The Spot has 13 9 foot Diamond Pro Ams, 8 Diamond 7 footers and a Gold Crown for those Brunswick fans. There are pool and dart leagues 5 nights a week. There is also an arcade with all the latest games, a full bar, full pub menu with additional home made specials. They host live bands and events and even have an upper loft for special events, parties and pool action viewing from above. So please come down to show your appreciation to The Spot, to play or just watch another world class event. While you are there you could even win a $1,200 custom engraved Joss Cue in the raffle. Anyone can participate and you do not have to be present to win! The cue can be viewed here:
