What we're about

Calling all chess players!! Join local professionals downtown on the first Thursday of every month for an evening of chess, good beer, and amazing nachos and appetizers!

All skill levels welcome, our only ask is that you bring your own chessboard (BYOCB)! A group of us have been meeting for a number of years now and we’re always looking for new members. Games are casual and fun and you can also build your professional network while engaging in a fun after-work activity.

If you're new to chess, feel free to come hang out and simply check some games out before playing your first game.

Rook no further, you’ve found your local chess knight - Come for a laugh and stay for a game!
