Houston, Texas (PRWEB) October 17, 2014
For well over a decade, Where the Winds Blow has been one of the foremost Mah Jongg companies in the Houston area, providing residents with variants of the board game that originated in China. Recently the company decided to join forces with The Inn at El Canelo for enthusiasts interested in organizing Mah Jongg getaways.
Usually played among three or four people with a set of 144 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols, Mah Jongg has existed in China for centuries. However, it took a visit from American civil engineer Joseph Park Babcock and his consequent book, Rules of Mah-Jongg, for the game to take hold in the West, particularly in the United States. Today, it is quite a popular hobby, and individuals, groups, and organizations host Mah Jongg tournaments all over the country.
Where the Winds Blow is now teaming up with The Inn at El Canelo to provide a venue for people to host tournaments. Located in Raymondville, which is deep in southern Texas, El Canelo provides a vast ranch, complete with a relaxing atmosphere. With the appropriately-themed "Mah Jongg Get-Away at El Canelo Ranch," visitors can stay for at least two days playing Mah Jongg with friends, while enjoying gourmet food and champagne margaritas. All meals, snacks, and beverages are provided by the El Canelo inn during the course of the two-day getaway. Additionally, the host, Monica Burdette, happens to be an avid Mah Jongg player.
The Inn at El Canelo provides five spacious guest rooms, each of which has two double beds and a private bath. Three of the rooms have an additional single bed. The ranch provides the playing tables and table covers, while visitors bring their Mah Jongg sets complete with cards, coin purses, cameras, and binoculars. A complete itinerary awaits each visit to El Canelo.
