THE BRIDGE GAME
The Bridge Game started out as a class taught by member Nick Garin, which quickly evolved into a duplicate bridge game twice a month, on the second and fourth Thursday of each month, at 7pm.
The Game is competitive, but not overly strict with rules since there are players with quite different skill levels. There is still a teaching component, so anyone who wants to learn (or re-learn it if they grew up on Goren) and join in is welcome. There are delicious refreshments that seem to appear out of nowhere each time the Game meets, and the company is fantastic.
