Brooklyn Blitz Open this Sunday!

After the great Brooklyn Chess Festival two weeks ago, we have another great chess event for you! This coming Sunday, Aug 24th, we are bringing a new exciting tournament to the New York chess scene- 7 rounds of blitz with time odds! The way it works is that we’re giving extra chance for lower-rated players to win by giving them more time than their higher-rated opponents will get. It is a novel idea which we hope to catch on. There are great money prizes with $400 for the winner and several class prizes given in various age groups. So, it’s this Sunday, Aug 24th at 4 at the New York Chess and Games Shop at 192 Flatbush Ave in Park Slope ( at Dean St, across the street from the Barclay’s Center). Click here for details and to register. You can’t miss it!

Two Moon Art House& Cafe

If you live close to the Park Slope/Gowanus area, it may be convenient for you to meet me for classes at the Two Moon Art House& Cafe , which is a charming, quiet cafe with beautiful art exhibits on the walls, and a lot of table space for us to sit down and study. You can read on their website that “Two Moon is a neighborhood art gallery, music venue, film house, cafe and wine bar serving homemade baked goods, seasonal entrees and delicious 40 Weight coffee. Two Moon’s treats and coffees are perfectly paired with rotating visual art exhibits and live performances.”. The only thing I could add to this is that their baked goodies are beyond delicious, I enjoy them every time I’m there, and that Two Moon’s owners, Joyce and Danielle, are the friendliest hosts you’ll ever meet! It’s a great place for a class and just hanging out afterwards. Check them out- they are located at 315 4th Ave (between 2nd& 3rd Streets), few blocks south from the Union St stop of the R train.
