CHESS & Live Music this Sunday, April 7, 2024 at Starbucks!

Hi Everyone!

This Sunday, April 7, 2024, there will be lots of fun, challenging chess over the boards, with live keyboard music! Yes, we will have our regular chess session from 3:00 p.m. through to closing time at our regular Starbucks venue, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., in the Clayton Shopping Center Center. In addition, Ron Z., a noted keyboard player/artist/music teacher, will play for us and other customers during the later part (around 4 or 5pm on) of our session. It's being cleared with Starbucks and by the way, it won't be the first time there -- Ron used to perform there for us some 10 or more years ago and ... he's back!!

So then, perhaps make it a point to join us this Sunday! All ages and skill levels are welcome, there are no dues, there's no purchase required, come and go anytime, and there's usually a chess puzzle to solve, with the first to do so on the first try winning a free tall Starbucks drink of choice!

We meet every Wednesday as well for chess, same time, same place,and last Wednesday's session saw several interesting matches. There for most of the afternoon and into the evening were Ben C., Tony, Chris N., Sam, Mark, Evan, Bert, Mike T., and Irakli. No player solved the mate-in-two chess puzzle on the first try, though the first move was found fairly early!

See you soon, perhaps get your game up, or at least come by, say hello, make some new friends, renew old friendships, and ... oh yeah, this Sunday, enjoy the live music!
