If you work or study downtown, swing by and visit us in Federal Plaza at Dearborn and Adams streets this Thursday and Friday, May 23 and 24, from 9 AM to 4 PM. We'll have chess tables set up and volunteers ready to play a game, teach the rules or demonstrate tactics to any and all comers. We'll also be talking about our mission and, of course, soliciting donations to help us open our doors. Bring a friend along and help us spread the word about Chicago's soon-to-be newest civic and educational institution. The more guests who visit, the more likely we'll hold more events like this one in the coming months.
Update, May 23, 11:30 AM: We said we'd be in Federal Plaza rain or shine . . . we didn't bargain on the wind. When it picked one of our tables up off the ground and flipped it over, we decided to call it a day. Come visit us tomorrow, when the weather is supposed to be much nicer!
