*** It's a great day for happy hour! See you tonight! ***
UPDATE #5: MAUVSA has garnered the support of the National Organization of Vietnamese American Leader (NOVAL) and media coverage by National Vietnamese Radio (NVR)! See you there!
UPDATE #4: Drink specials are $4 Corona Lights, $5 20s & 30s Asian Superstar drinks, and $6 house wine until 8pm!
UPDATE #3: In what began as a fundraiser for MAUVSA, the tragic events surrounding Typhoon HaiYan that has affected the Philippines and across South East Asia has prompted MAUVSA to graciously donate half of their proceeds to aid the HaiYan relief through the Philippines Red Cross. So please come out and support. See you there!
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 MAUVSA (Mid-Atlantic Union of Vietnamese Student Associations)... www.mauvsa.org... a non-profit alliance of college-based cultural organizations from D.C., Maryland, and Virginia, seeking to unify the student community, facilitate communication and cooperation throughout the region, empower and develop young leaders, foster cultural awareness and education, and promote social justice... suggested $5 -10 donation. Please note 80% of donations go to MAUVSA 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, Josephine is a sleek and modern lounge featuring lavender lights and multifaceted mirrors with embedded LEDs everywhere you look! 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!

Metro and Parking
Closest Metro is McPherson Square (Orange / Blue lines), I suggest Metro / cabbing it (especially during rush hour). I also recommend using wmata.com 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.
