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.
From the brilliantly talented artist, John Davis, comes this wonderful vision of Mah Jongg palmistry:
BECOME YOUR OWN PALM READER!!!
Amaze yourself and your friends with this handy illustrated guide to the Ancient Art of Mahj Palmistry!!!
Simply compare your hand with others to unlock the secrets of your destiny!!!!
The very talented John Davis lives in Thousand Oaks, California. His fabulous Mah Jongg-themed art is available for sale and you can see it all on his website. I know you are going to enjoy his work and I can’t wait to read your comments about this amazing guy. And, much thanks to John for letting me blog about him and show you an example of his vision of our beloved game.
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 fabulous Mah 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.
And, on Sunday, February 7th, Toby is holding a Lunar New Year Costume Party. Brunch is from 11am – 12 noon and then Mah Jongg play from noon until 3 pm. Dim Sum/Chinese food will be served; wear an Asian costume or just wear RED! Click here to register in advance, which is necessary.
