Bridge and Games


Welcome back to in-person


Please note that the first time you visit us you’ll be required to show proof of complete vaccination.

Bridge and Games is at 87th Street and 3rd Avenue. It will be our home for in-person Bridge, Canasta, Mah Jongg, Scrabble, Backgammon, Chess, Scrabble, and Euro-style board games for the next several months.

We now offer four duplicate bridge sessions a week. Two 18-board games on Tuesdays, one 24-board game on Thursdays, and one 24-board game on Fridays.
Reservations, a must, can only be made by email and only through Fran or Betsy.

Fran will be taking reservations for our Tuesday and Friday games. Betsy will be taking Thursdays’ reservations.

Light refreshments will be served, along with coffee, tea, soda and seltzer. We will limit our per-session table count to 16 tables.

Even when the pandemic is just a bad memory, masking will not only be permitted, but encouraged, especially during flu season or whenever there is an outbreak of colds within our community. We have learned much from the pandemic. In order to help mitigate the spread of any viral or bacterial air borne disease, weather permitting, we will leave our windows open and our three ceiling fans running. In addition, we have three state-of-the-art, powerful Hepa filters to aid in sterilizing and circulating the air up to four times an hour. This will be especially important when we have to switch to air conditioning.
