I will be embarking on a ~3000 mile road trip:
Although I won't be playing any tournament chess I plan to visit a few chess cafes etc. (Washington Square)
Toronto - Street food (Tandoori Chicken) at the South Asian festival in Little India, Gerrad Street
Ottawa - Parliament Building
Montreal - 1976 Olympic Stadium
I sat down at one of the tables. The guy started with small talk about Anand, since he thought I was from India. He then wanted to play a game with no conditions to see where I stood. I didn't play that well and resigned when I lost a piece. I was ready for a money game now, but he refused to play me. He probably thought that I threw the game!
