Event description

Description

Want to learn to play games of mahjong like a Crazy Rich Asian?

What is mahjong?

Mahjong is a game commonly played with four players and special tiles originating in China during the Qing dynasty. Now played all over the world and most widespread in Eastern and South Eastern Asia, this skillful game of strategy is sometimes compared to rummy, the Western card matching game.

Become an expert in reading minds and faces using more than 100 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols. Draw or "rob" a piece from another player. Enjoy a Burmese meal, make new friends, or act quickly and buy out the whole table!

What to expect:

Join Toli Moli all Mondays in May for a special AAPI Heritage Month weekly game night. At each two-hour event, expect a full lesson and a supper social at the bodega. Start your evening with a mahjong lesson (beginner friendly, all levels welcome) where we break down the game from 5-6 p.m., and then from 6-7 p.m. enjoy some open practice and free play with a full meal from our Burmese kitchen!

Perfect for singles, pairs, or groups of four. So, bring your #bodegabae or just yourself and learn how to play this centuries old game in an environment that is entertaining, educational, and full of laughter.
