Mah Jongg is not just a game. It has become a part of my life that allows me to entertain my Mah Jongg-playing friends, cook great meals to serve to them and test my mental skills during our game play (which, hopefully, is often).
If I ever happen to be in Sacramento, and this is enough to make me want to go there, I am heading straight to Ma Jong’s Asian Restaurant. Check out their website – the pictures of their food are nothing short of fabulous! I wish they delivered to New York!
Good friends of mine sent me this information about a tournament out on Long Island. I suspect this will be lots of fun – if you live on the Island, think about attending this tournament – breakfast, lunch and a Mah Jongg tournament with money prizes – all for $45 and a good cause, at that? What could be better?!!
Yesterday was our weekly Mah Jongg game and this time it was K’s turn to host with Roxie greeting us as we came in. My hostess gift was for Roxie – an antler – which she seemed to truly appreciate. As always, it was a wonderful day of food and fun. The only thing missing from the day was S who is still in California – and it’s not the same without her!
My call out for Mah Jongg teachers throughout the United States has been met with phenomenal success. Every few days I will post some more names and contact information about teachers in different areas of the country. If you are a Mah Jongg teacher – or know of any – please send names and contact information to me. It’s more fun if you have some great pictures to send along with names, email addesses and phone numbers.
Today I want to introduce you to Peggy Kolkey who teaches in Beverly Hills and on the Westside of Los Angeles. You can reach Peggy at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 213.840.3869.
Here’s Peggy, victorious after winning on the very difficult 2013 hand from the NMJL‘s 2013 card:
