Humboldt has spoken and we now know where all our laundry quarters will be best wasted. The still fairly new Rose’s Billiards was lauded by LoCO fans for their commitment to providing players pool table excellence — they’re not just an entertainment afterthought shoved in the corner.

These Tables make every other in the area look like a plywood coffee table,” said one commenter.

As for our rural region winner, kudos to The Logger Bar for being the first double Humboldt Approved winner (they previously took home Best Bar honors). Game on in Blue Lake.

Original post: Before we get into this week’s Humboldt Approved, we want to make sure y’all are aware how important it is to win one of these fun/dumb polls. Surely by now, you’ve all checked out our Humboldt Approved Hall of Fame, a visual roll call of all things good in our county. If not, do that. It’s where the businesses/locations/individuals who are laudable enough to be clicked to victory during one of our popularity contests are forevermore visually represented — a very prestigious corner of LoCO indeed. 

Do you want to be on that page? Of course you do.

With that in mind, let’s immortalize someone else. You LoCO readers are familiar with billiards, right? Do you like pool? ‘Cuz that’s what we’re doing this week. In the comments below. Please tell us where you like to get your 8-Ball on, Humboldt. You decide what’s important when choosing a location to chalk up: Is it how well the table is maintained? The availability? The ambience of the location? The access to cheap beer? You decide.

We’re gonna go ahead and make this a two winner week. As always, refer to the rules below to make sure your vote counts:

To vote, look through the comments of this Humboldt Approved poll. If someone has already nominated the answer you would give for that week’s category, click the upvote arrow. If you don’t see your desired Humboldt Approved answer nominate it in a comment for others to upvote. (Please be careful to not duplicate answers; redundant answers will be deleted and potential associated upvotes will be lost.) Feel free to make your case by replying to/cheering on the answer you love most, but again the number by the arrows is what counts.

Of course, you can vote for as many nominees as you deem worthy, but of course the more you do that the more watered down your initial vote becomes. That’s math.

We reserve the right to delete superfluous comments that make the voting/comment section hard to sift through. Please try not to get offended when your comment battle reply is deleted. We’re trying to do something here.

We are looking for two winners — one winner from the metropolises of Eureka and Arcata, and one from Humboldt’s smaller communities. Voting closes next Friday at noon and soon after a winner will be declared. (Tip: Sort comments by “BEST” to get a better grasp of how voting is trending.)

Get to it. Where is Humboldt’s best pool table? We will know definitively Friday.
