    Then both those places would be easy for you to get to.

    Ah, so that's why you posted the thread about the Canadian open.

    Never heard of Louisa - are you talking about the Mexican place in Crown Hill, or the coffeehouse on Eastlake?

    I don't know how the poor little coffee shop would cope with a bunch of rowdy chess players though.

    Anyway, i've always thought that small time coffee shops (ie not Starbucks or Seattle's best) are an ideal place for a few games of chess.

    Indeed, not Starbucks! The tables are too small for one.

    Seattle's worst has shops? Glad I haven't been in those.


    A couple of us in Spokane are talking about turning the Rocket downtown into a chess cafe.
