Happy Hour at Current!

*** It's a great day for happy hour! See you tonight! ***

UPDATE #3: Drink specials are $4 Corona Lights, $5 20s & 30s Asian Superstar drinks, and $6 house wine until 8pm!

UPDATE #2: Per my email, I need volunteers to help sign people in with name tags and to meet / greet folks! This is a great way to meet people, and help kick start a friendly vibe to the event. I need volunteers to fill 30 minute slots (which goes by very fast) on the hour.  If you can help, please send me an email letting me know which top three time slots you prefer (in order of preference)!

UPDATE #1: Looks like this will be a good one! So tell a friend, come on out, meet new people, and help support a good cause! And again, I encourage everyone to have a GOAL OF MEETING 3 NEW PEOPLE!

Okay, time to get together for our next happy hour!

Our happy hour will benefit Asian Pacific / Islander DVRP (Domestic Violence Resource Project)... www.dvrp.org... an organization providing services to survivors of domestic violence in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia.  Their mission is to address and prevent domestic violence in API communities... suggested $5 or $10 donation. Please note 80% of donations go to DVRP and 20% of donations will go to the 20s & 30s Asian Going Out Group to cover Meetup fees and expenses.

DJ Saam will be spinning loungy groovy beats for us. Our happy hours typically bring out 150 - 200 folks... and I wouldn't be surprised with a similar turnout this time around.

If you haven't been there before, Current was recently completely renovated and offers a sophisticated retro-chic feel with a sleek lounge atmosphere.  You should definitely come check it out! 21+

To help continue the friendly tone of this group... I'd like to again encourage each person to have a GOAL OF MEETING 3 NEW PEOPLE at this event. To help do this, for an icebreaker, we'll put your name in a jar as you walk in, and then give you someone else's name from the jar. Also, 20s & 30s Asian Rockstars, please help make all the newcomers feel welcome to our group!

- J.T.

Metro and Parking

Closest Metro is Dupont Circle (Red Line) & Farragut North (Red Line), I suggest metro / cabbing it (esp. during rush hour). I also recommend using wmata for travel plans. Don't forget to account for Metro and traffic delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage.

      Hi Rick,this group is very open and friendly. People do bring friends but there is also a good mix of first timers and those looking to meet new friends. See you there!

      Hi Grace, do me a favor and send me an email, or respond to the email I sent requesting volunteers. I have so many events and groups, it's the only way I can properly track everything. Thank you!
