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 you are fortunate to live in the greater Bay Area, you are close enough to sign up for this worthwhile event with the wonderful Toby Salk presiding as the tournament director. Sign up now as this event sold out right away last year. To register and see more information on this wonderful event, visit this REGISTRATION LINK.
Whenever I hear from someone in the Bay Area asking me for a Mah Jongg teacher recommendation, my go-to – and only – person I send them to is my dear friend, Toby Salk. And now Toby has finally received the recognition she so deserves – she has been crowned as the Bay Area’s Mah Jongg Queen by Berkeley Hills Living, a private, neighborhood-focused magazine that serves the Berkeley Hills residents and Montclair and Piedmont Pines residents. The magazine’s mission is “to bring neighbors and businesses together with a positive, relevant and family-friendly monthly magazine, customized to meet the needs of the neighborhood.”
Read on about Toby and you will learn some of the reasons why I think she is the greatest!
I love receiving emails from my dear friend Toby Salk who lives in my once-upon-a-time home of Berkeley, CA. Her email photos always bring a smile and I thought you might enjoy a couple of her most recent pictures. And, by the way, if you live in or around the Bay Area then you are lucky enough to either take Mah Jongg lessons from Toby or join in her Sunday Mah Jongg brunches and other Mah Jongg events.
And don’t forget about Toby’s big yard sale TODAY, July 22, 2017, from 10am – 2pm. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for her address if you are interested in checking it out.
A ridiculous amount of fun is what Toby Salk promises you will have if you are signed up for one of her events held in the Berkeley, CA area.
Count yourself as one of the lucky ones if you live in the Bay Area and can be a part of Toby’s fabulousMah Jongg Brunches – brunch is from 11 am to noon and then Mah Jongg play goes until 3 pm. Toby makes it possible for you to enjoy playing Mah Jongg while making new friends at her wonderful monthly brunches.
