Hall Manager Says Smoke Ban Forces Closing

Friday, January 28th, 2005

A widely known Lincoln pool hall is closing because of lost revenue since the city’s smoking ban was implemented Jan. 1, the business’ general manager says.

Laurie Anderson of Big John’s Billiards said the pool hall has lost at least $10,000 in three weeks and can’t make payroll. Big John’s will close for good Sunday night after 21 years of business, she said.
