Video: Learning how to play dominoes on Calle Ocho

If you’ve ever sauntered down Calle Ocho in the afternoon, you’ll hear the distinct click-clack of dominoes drifting from the dozens of tables scattered through Maximo Gomez Park.

Dominoes are way more than a way for abuelo to pass the time. They’re about method and strategy and that trash talking you hear is a polished skill.  We wouldn’t dare challenge one of these guys to a game ourselves. Instead, we asked longtime Little Havana resident Corinna Moebius, who is also a tour guide and founder of LittleHavanaGuide.com, to walk us through how it’s done.
