The northwest corner of Fifth and Market Streets has been home to a vibrant street chess scene the past two decades or so. It’s just like regular chess, but with a few bons mots (like “en passant, bitches“) thrown in. And you actually have a chance of winning this Find the King game of chance, as opposed to any Find the Queen or Three Card Monte game you might encounter at Fisherman’s Wharf.
So many tables, so few tourist suckers to win money off of…
And please remember, No Wagering!
See you there.
