Happy Hour at Eden!

  • Aug 22, 2013 · 6:00 PM

*** 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 Kollaboration DC... www.kollaborationdc.org... a nonprofit organization and movement produced by young Asian and Pacific Islander professionals and students, volunteering their time and skills to celebrate the vast talents of our community and hopefully bring us into the mainstream.... suggested $5 - 10 donation. Please note 80% of donations go to Kollaboration DC 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, Eden is dressed up with wood walls, waterfalls, and loads of green LEDs.  It looks like something out of Avatar.  In fact, some of the plants were actually sourced from the same folks who sourced plants for the movie! 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 Farragut West (Orange / Blue lines), I suggest Metro / cabbing it (especially 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.

    Thank everyone for supporting Kollaboration DC at the Happy Hour last week! I just wanted to give a heads up for another cool event that we're holding in Columbia Heights tomorrow night. There will be live music from local Asian American artists as well as a first look at this year's Kollaboration DC music video! For more details, check out our FB event page http://www.facebook.com/events/228945237253822/

    Thanks again for the support, I hope to see some of you tomorrow night!

      I will text you tomorrow and if you want to meet prior to the event, that sounds good to me. I think the event begins ta 6:00 so are you sure you do not want to meet before 5:45?

    Like many others, it seems that this will be my 1st 20s and 30s Asian meetup. I do not think my European heritage will effect my future involvement and since I have spent so many years in East and Southeast Asia, I believe I will be very comfortable in this setting. I am really looking forward to meeting new people from the area since I have only been living in Alexandria for a month now and have not met many people outside of work. See you all there!

    I am still new to D.C. and lacking people to join me for Eden but hopefully, events like this will solve this dilemma. I will be there and am looking forward to my 1st event with the 20s and 30s Asian Group meetup

    August 6, 2013

  • Phil

    Next meetup is Aug 22...that's nearly a month (plus I'll be at my new job so I won't have much free/flexible time) . Anyone else want to just do a small HH before then? Just hit me up.
