Slice of Life: HP Domino Scene in PW

From an article in the most recent edition of Philadelphia Weekly:

A national pastime in several Latin-Caribbean countries including Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Cuba (which plays a nine-chip instead of a six-chip game), dominoes is very much alive in North Philly as well.

“Soon as the weather breaks you'll see people bring out their tables,” says 55-year-old City Councilman Juan Ramos. He says sidewalks, backyards, senior centers, rec centers and “wherever there's baseball”—Norris Square and Hunting Park especially—come alive with the dotted chips.
