Let’s face it: You can learn only so much during a date of dinner and drinks. To determine the key factors of a relationship — like, does your date know how to manipulate a cue ball with proper English? — you need to hang out someplace real, like EB’s. The atmosphere is laid-back, and the entire night (beer and billiards) is downright economical. Tip: If your date forsakes the rather pedestrian, but certain, bridge shot for a showy, yet risky, behind-the-back shot, he might be “all hat and no cattle,” as our Texan friends are fond of saying.
