Jillian's in Westbury a Source for Entertainment
With individual clubs nationwide varying in size between 15,000 and 75,000 square feet, Jillian's offers food, drinks, and socially interactive ice-breaking entertainment. First opened in Boston in July 1988, Jillian's jumpstarted the billiard themed restaurant industry, according to their website. There are two locations on Long Island; Farmingdale (261 Airport Plaza Boulevard) and Westbury (1504 Old Country Road).
Although it is the smaller of the two facilities, Jillian's in The Source Mall at Westbury has a great deal going on. On Tuesday, May 31, a billiard's tournament will be held at 7:00 p.m. Fight Night is the feature event on May 28 as the boxing match between Julio Caesar Chavez and Ivan Robinson will be shown on several of the large televisions throughout the complex. There is a $5 dollar cover charge on all Fight Nights.
On regular nights, the main attraction is the gaming area where there is an assortment of video and other games such as skeeball, air hockey and super shot. There are also numerous carnival-type games and an area where the tokens from these games can be redeemed for prizes. Living up to the company's "Eat, Drink, Play" slogan, the venue also contains two bar/restaurant areas. More information can be found online at www.jillians.com.
