Beaverton Chinese Mah Jong

Solace & Fine Espresso

Several members live closer to Beaverton, so I'm starting up a new game near Highway 217 and Farmington at Solace & Fine Espresso from 1pm till 3pm. We have tables reserved. Experience levels from none to a lot are welcome! No outside food or drink. Even though Mah Jong is a gambling game, we will not be playing for money. Fun only :) Thank you to Encorepreneur Cafe for sponsoring our game! I will bring brochures for their organization. They help retired people start businesses.
