July 23rd

The Los Angeles Chess Social will be meeting tonight at the POP Champagne Bar! This will be our last time meeting at this establishment becuase it is closing on August 3rd. There is a lot of alcohol and food that the pleasant owner, Jeff Hauser, has to get rid of, and is offering an all night happy hour just for us! We decided to do it here again after the last time we met here becuase of all the positive feedback! Here are some notes about tonight and the next couple of weeks!

August 23rd:

I have a few questions that could use some member feedback:

1) I have a strong connection with the Seal Beach Yacht Club, they have a really cool view of the Alimitos Bay, and it is in Long Beach on the water. Is this to far for members to want to drive? It would be a one time only event.

2) Is meeting at a Private Residence more fun?

3) Are there any other themes that members would enjoy?

Please email us at [masked] to respond!

See you all tonight!
