Bard & Baker Board Game Cafe Comes to Troy
The Capital Region Chamber along with Ambassadors, patrons, family and friends welcomed Bard and Baker to Broadway on Thursday, October 11th. Bard and Baker is a unique cafe in that it holds almost 400 different board games for guests to play at their table. From the classics to new modern games, the theme of the cafe is to “unplug and play.” Something we all need to do from time to time.
