Crooked Cue

I happened upon this cool sign on Bloor St in the Kingsway neighborhood and love the deco look of the stonework. I would like to see the neon lit up but am never out that way after dark - it may be worth a trip!

That's funny because we never seem to be out to get signs lit up either.

I like the look of the place too.

Great deco building and fun sign, though I don't think a crooked cue is helpful in billiards!

It seems there are two cool signs - the Crooked Cue and the Billiards. Intriguing, for sure. I'd go check it out but I'm kinda behind the 8 ball here in Ocala. (I have no idea what that means.)

I wonder why the cue is crooked. :))

neat name.

This looks like it might be a small place - but I'm betting it is much bigger on the inside!

That is a good find. I think we both need to go out at night with our cameras

deco architecture and furniture is my favorite. I don't go out at night if I can help it, but something like this sign might be worth venturing out.

Interesting choice of name. I am think the building might have been a movie theater at one time.

A nice bright sign. I am lazy for getting night time lit up signs. Once Dinner's eaten & I sit down that's usually where I stay.

And is it still a billiards hall?

Nice look, but a strange name :)

Tony McGurk said...

I was inspired. I took my camera around town & got some great photos of lit up signs!!!

Great font, colour and design on that logo.

I like it too, very creative!

Crooked cue. Sounds like one of our national political debates.

It's been a lot of years since I've been to the Crooked Cue!
