    Cafe Arab'ella has great coffee, and bagels, and eggs, and more.

    The chess is organized by Glenn Wilson (that's me), United States Chess Federation Correspondence Chess Master and Chess Expert. I have helped thousands of people have fun and become better chess players through lessons, coaching, my chess web sites and chess related software including the free KnightVision Pawner mobile chess app for practicing how the pieces move.
