9 Queens is dedicated to empowering individuals and communities through chess by making the game fun, exciting, and accessible.
“I became interested in chess when I was about four. I like chess bc you get to have fun and learn some things. You get to be more patient. You get to focus and concentrate. ”
What is Tuesdays for Tucson? It’s La Cocina’s way to give back by hosting non-profits to celebrate and share their mission with the community of Tucson. 10% of the evenings proceeds will help support 9 Queens continued commitment to provide the benefits of chess to our amazing community of Southern Arizona, in particular girls and under-represented communities.
La Cocina is nestled in the heart of the historic Presidio district in downtown Tucson amongst the charm of the Old Town Artisans plaza and is home to one of Tucson’s most enchanted courtyard patios. Enjoy a game of chess next to the centerpiece fountain and Koi pond, invent new moves to the music of our guest Dj, enjoy a delicious Baja Tucson meal under the stars and dazzling lights of one of Tucson’s most delightful patios or bring home a prize from our 9 Queens raffle. Invite family, tell friends and come join us for community, music and chess! How Fantastic, see you there!
