恭喜年僅22歲的Richard Han奪得冠軍,我們也很高興看到麻將這一國粹在美國的華人年輕人中得以傳承

A big thanks to all those have participated in the competition. 
We have held this tournament in hopes to promote Mahjong as a fun and wonderful strategic game, which was invented long time ago and is still very popular with the Asian Community to this day.


This is our seventh year countdown at the Yes Plaza.  As were previous years, thousands of visitors joined us for the spectacular night! This year was marked special by the Mayan legend.  It is a true testament of optimism beats all that we are going to celebrate, laugh and leave 2013 behind whilst welcoming the New Year!

Can't find parking? No Problem! For every 15 minutes, we have arranged special shuttle from Seasons place to the Yes Plaza.
