New York, NY, October 12, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- When the 12 initial Rack Starz were chosen, co-founders Gail Glazebrook and Jennifer Barretta focused on selecting ladies who played out of Amsterdam Billiards since this is where they spent most of their time. So teaming up with Amsterdam as the Home of Rack Starz NYC seemed like a no brainer.
“Amsterdam Billiards is the place to play pool in New York City. Offering a range of players from beginner to professional, leagues that accommodate them all, and a fully stocked bar with friendly wait staff, Amsterdam Billiards is where pool and pleasure come together,” says Gail. “It’s the place to be whether you're a world champion or want to have a fun first date,” continues Jennifer.
Amsterdam will be hosting the first official Rack Starz event, their calendar launch party November 18th. This will be a semi-private event detailed as the introduction of Rack Starz to New York City where the ladies will conduct press interviews, sell and autograph calendars, meet and greet with their fans and the media as well as take on some lucky competitors for a round of pool to showcase their talents.
“We are very excited to partner up with Rack Starz and become the home of such amazing talent and beauty,” confirms Amsterdam co-owner, Greg Hunt.
