Unplug and Play Mah Jongg
Saturday, March 8, 2:00 - 5:00 pm, Rinder Chapel
Unplugging from technology, relaxing from work and spending time with friends are the most important principles to enjoy the ancient Chinese game of Mah Jongg, intergenerationally loved today thanks to our bubbies who popularized the movement long ago.
Mahj Club and Congregation Emanu-El are hosting this Mah Jongg Drop-In for Reboot’s National Day of Unplugging. Join the renaissance and pull up a seat at the introduction table or bring your 2013 National Mah Jongg League card to get your Mahj On.
Meet other players, learn Mahj tips from your neighbors and have fun! This is a FREE event and you can help us by RSVPing ahead at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan on attending, bringing a MJ set, or bringing a snack for our nosh-luck.
