the pool hall located approximately on the site of what is now Tiger Rags? It was somewhere right along that stretch of Gay Street. My great-uncle owned it while he was a student. Not sure if he bought it or opened it. All my family that would remember are gone now. Would have been in the late 60s as he was a good bit younger than my grandfather.

I remember one across from a grocery-Big Bear I think. I spent many an hour in there while I lived in C&C dorm. Don't remember anything about management, but it was larger and better lit than the other pool halls in town and was not a bad place to take a date in the early evening.
Scot by blood, Southerner by Birth, Auburn Tiger by choice - War Eagle!
Where was the grocery located?
between the Westley Foundation and Village Laundry. C&C Dorm was around the corner on Thatch and across from Auburn Hall which was the one of the Freshmen girls dorms. C&C was fairly new in 1965 and was the first to have it's own pool. This was just before the major apartment construction began and most options for housing for men besides the dorms and frat houses was rooming houses and spare rooms in people's homes. Lived in a Trailer at Stokers on Opelika Highway my second year but I had too much freedom and was too far from campus. At C&C, I had a small grill and could get club steaks (bone in Rib Eyes) at that grocery for less than $.60 a pound and HB meat was $.19 a pound. I could grill two steaks, baked potatoes and salad for under $3 and eat next to the pool with a beautiful girl. Not a bad life. WDE
I remember it well.
I believe there were three pool halls. In '65 & '66, I lived off Magnolia and Donahue so we went to the two closer to us. One was downtown and I believe the other was over near what we called the Sani-Flush but I believe the real name was Sani-Freeze. (It's a stupid branch bank now).
In '67 I moved to the other end of Magnolia, about a block past Gay. After that we went to your great-uncle's. The tables weren't as crowded up as the other two so it was a better place to play.
I believe the basketball coach ran the one downtown when he wasn't coaching.
Times have changed a lot and I'm rambling so I'll stop now.

Yep - that's it! If you could remember the name or contact someone you know that did, I'd sincerely appreciate it. I'm going to open a business in Auburn sometime in the near future hopefully and want to put some sentimental pictures in it and need the name to start my search for some pics.
That's the one - see my other reply - need help with finding the name of it. Thanks!
I can't remember the name but I played a game there on more than one occasion. I racked part time at the hall on Glen near where the Waffle House is today. I lived in Gulledge's just down and across Glen from it. There was a guy named Charlie that lived in one of the back houses at Gulledges and he was the best shooter I ever saw.
I lived in C & C in 61,62.
Don't remember the exact year it was built, but it was almost new at the time.
Nice red you got there, I've caught a many in the 5 to 8 lb range on artifical bait and light tackle (by far the most fun) fishing the Chandelier Islands, but the biggest I have landed ( 37-1/2" nose to fork) was on live shrimp at the Destin Bridge with the tide going out.
Worry only about things which you can change, the rest will either work themselves out or kill you......either way, no more worries.
Yes...Remember it well and enjoyed many a good game of 8 Ball there. A memory that will not be forgotten.
I remember taking 'Snooker 101' (taught by a couple of football players) at the one downtown.
It was one of the toughest courses at AU, and a major impact on the GPA.
Thanks - 40" on the red - caught on the James Island side of Charleston Harbor, just back of Ft Johnson (old coast guard station). Caught in 2' of water next to an oyster bed. I was using a finger mullet on 15# Firewire with an Equalizer.
