The two coin-op pool tables suck, and you’ll be lucky if there is a complete set of billiard balls. But the Gingerman, the best Wrigleyville bar for the meathead-avoider, is still a great place to play pool. The talent varies widely, from journeyman players to apprentice drinkers who struggle to hold a cue, which means you might actually get to play.
