Starbucks was simply jammed last week, but mainly with academics studying or getting tutored so much so that only Hans and Ron were able to get tables for a chess match, while other players simply went across the lot to Carl's Jr. to get several games in, as Lorenzo and Rich went at it over speed chess, and Mike T. and Marcin traded victories and blunders at a nearby table!
That was certainly unusual at Starbucks last Wednesday, with another unusual event there, a fight, yes a noisy slug fest, between two high school ladies that had to be broken up by Starbucks staff! Nobody was hurt, though all the patrons at the coffeehouse were certainly surprised . . .
. . . well, anyway, we meet again, same place, same time (6:00p.m. - 9:00 p.m.), come by anytime, the earlier the better for ringside seats, I mean the best tables, more games, and some really interesting company!
See you soon,
