Chris's Billiards. About two blocks from my house. I wonder if I would have heard anything if we didn't have all the windows closed for the fall weather.

I know that pool hall very well. That is where they filmed some of the scenes from The Color of Money. I have not been there in a long time, about 12 years, and back then the place was starting to get more than a bit run down. They kept a few of the main tables in top condition for all the local pool sharks and hustlers, but a lot of the other tables had seen better days. Still, it was a fun place to go and kill a few hours.

Don't these people know that family fights are only allowed at Chucky Cheese?

They filmed some scenes from Chicago PD/Fire/Med (not sure which one) there a couple of years ago, too.
