Chicago event: Marbles Amateur Crossword Tournament

I'm pleased to announce that Chicago has an upcoming crossword tournament. A downtown store, Marbles: The Brain Store, is hosting the Marbles Amateur Crossword Tournament on Saturday, April 18th, at 1 p.m.

Registration is only $20 ($15 if you sign up by April 11—call 312-494-7769 to RSVP), and the proceeds will be donated to the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. The contest crosswords will be the Monday through Thursday New York Times puzzles. (Many thanks to Will Shortz and the Times for supporting this charitable endeavor.)

I hope to see you there!
