Chess in the Park, Denver

  
Looking for an al fresco chess spot in Denver, Colorado?  Then come to the 16th Street Mall, between Arapahoe Street and Curtis Street.  Artists Doug Eichelberger and Susan Wick  created this group of tables with two ceramic tiled chess boards separated by a mosaic sculpture. It’s a great spot to find a pick up game and do some people watching.
 

Game Cafe in Qubec City

  
While visiting Québec City I found La Ravanche,  a great place to play games. On 585 Boulevard Charest E. La Revanche  is not just a game cafe, but a game pub complete with draft beers and cocktails. 

Players can sip the beverage of their choice and choose a game from an impressive collection of games–mostly in French. If your French is a little rusty, the staff clad in bright yellow t-shirts will teach you the rules of the games you picked.

Bonne chance!
