Our goal is the just have fun playing chess. This is not a USCF sponsored group nor USCF club. Even though this group is intended for casual coffeehouse chess, we do get (on rare occasions) a few club members who are very strong and are used to the club environment. But mainly this is unrated casual.
If you are a beginner, or "haven't played in 10 years and want to play again but I can't remember how good I am" type of player, then this is the group you should join. We welcome anyone who either wants to learn how to play, or already plays.
Panera Bread, in my opinion, is a combination of a fast food joint and a coffee shop. The food there is excellent! It's mostly sandwiches, soups, salads and pastries. You are not obligated to order anything should you decide to come play us. They have free wi-fi, and the staff are always welcoming our group back, and many times if we are still in games when closing time comes they let us stay after and wrap up, completely stress free environment at both of the cafes we normally play at.
Hope to see you at our next meet up!
Act now and get 50% off.
Until February 1.
