If you're in New York and a bridge player, then you must visit the Mahattan Club. Although the Club has three owners, Jesus Arias ("Zeus"), Jeff and Barbara Bayone, only the first was in town when Sharon and Roger stopped to visit.
The Andersons report back that "Zeus was wearing his many hats." Prior to the game, he engaged in a one-on-one with a player and gave a lesson to about 20 299ers. Following the competition, Zeus conducted a post mortem with roughly six players who lingered. Oh - and, by the way, during the game, Zeus played, too!
One player commented, "If we could unleash Zeus in the public school system, our young player programs would be flush."
During a break, it was Sharon's pleasure to meet and greet the players.
Ron Haack and Sharon strike a pose, both flashing big smiles!
