Is There a Bubble Hockey Table in Dallas?

Yes, that’s what it’s called. Bubble hockey. It’s also apparently called “rod hockey” and “table hockey.” All funny sounding, but that’s not the point. You know the type of game I mean. Not air hockey. The International Bubble Hockey Federation site says there is only one table in Texas, at Woody’s Tavern in Fort Worth. But is that really the only real (as in, not the play-at-home kind you can buy at Target) table in the entire state? Is there not some bar or arcade in Dallas that wants to lure nostalgic grown men who enjoyed the game as children?

The story of why I’m looking is long and boring. Let’s just say that I now know that Dave and Busters does not have one, even though the woman who answered the phone there said they did–even after I specified that no, I did not mean an air hockey table. Please, someone, tell me this game has not gone extinct here.
