Mahjong Play Day Unites Fort Worth’s Power Players in Support of Tarrant Area Food Bank

(Photo by/Sharon Ellman) Have lunch at any Fort Worth club and you will see well-dressed ladies playing Mahjong. To say the tile-based game — whose origins experts typically agree are found in China during the mid-to-late 1800s — is a popular hobby would be an understatement. As a result, tournaments take place all over town, from Colonial to River Crest. Six years ago, Elizabeth Ray and Mary Ralph Lowe channeled their Mahjong obsession into a charitable event for the Tarrant Area Food Bank. This year, they served as Honorary Chairs for the 2021 Mahjong Play Day alongside Roz Rosenthal, where they set the stage for another highly anticipated event.

Ten Burritos in Dallas-Fort Worth You Need To Eat Right Now

I’m rather particular about burritos. (If you are too, this list is obviously for you.) Being a California girl—on my non-French maternal side—I’m fond of all the Golden State styles. I love a Mission-style burrito, from my days dwelling near San Francisco, when I prowled Dolores and Mission to handle the heft of overstuffed blimps wrapped tightly in foil. I’ve dallied deeply with L.A.’s style, purchased from food trucks or fancy Silver Lake coffee shops, and with the iconic San Diego-style, melding meat, beans, cheese, and potatoes (later, French fries, which you know as the Cali). In Texas, I’ve come to love the heftier, stick-to-your-ribs, meat-and-potatoes or guisado styles hailing from Northern Mexico, from whence our flour tortilla tradition comes.
