PETREA BURCHARD and Boz Books are now at petreaburchard.com
What a great place to relax, out back of a fabulous food emporium, surrounded by flowers (albeit in buckets).Not so sure the guys are relaxing, though; they're concentrating so hard their tongues are sticking out. Great photo, Petrea.
I had a photo of them where they were smiling and pretending to play but I like this one better because by this time they'd forgotten about me and were playing their game.
They do look really at ease, very unposed. Very nice slice of life.
now I understand why I've struggled so much with dominoes and tri-ominoes----tongue placement! I've always tried to keep my Westridge roots and "be a lady". Slam that, I'm sticking my tongue out next time I play!glad they all get along so well at work that they can take a break and play together! not many workplaces are like that!
They seemed to be having a good time. I also admire the business that gives them this comfort zone and this time.I almost didn't take the picture. I was with Donna Chaney and she encouraged me. I'm always afraid to ask people but these guys were fine with it, so I snapped away.
Oooh man, they're serious with the chips.
I don't remember how to play Dominoes but the pace was fast.
Is the game of dominoes just an activity for Hispanic men, or do women play, too?
This has reminded me how much I enjoy dominoes. It's a short but interesting game, and you don't get stuck in it for hours as with Monopoly. I never knew this place was called The Kitchen for Exploring Foods, even though I've eaten there. Their ready-prepared meals are very good. I think they make most of their money from high-end catering to the expensive fund-raising parties that seem to happen all the time in the gently rolling hills of West Pasadena.
Speedway, I don't think it's a Hispanic game. I used to play with my dad, and we have northern European roots.People call it "The Kitchen" for short, Bellis, but there's a restaurant in Old Town with the same name. This one's the fancy caterer and I understand they're fabulous.
there is a version of dominoes called "mexican train" which is the set of rules one usually gets with a standard set around these parts. but there are many variations, not just south of the border. I believe it originally was based with dice and started in China, but I'd have to look into it for more info.and Patrizzi is right, chips and betting mean they are serious!
Mmmm... now I'm hungry too. Fun photo. I love the intent expressions on their faces.
