UPDATE #5: 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! 

UPDATE #4: NoVA Japanese Language and Culture Group, Washington Area Japanese Culture, and the Association of South Asian Professionals - DC will also be joining us! So tell a friend, come on out, meet new people, and help support a good cause!

UPDATE #2: In light of the recent Japan disaster, we will be re-focusing our fundraising efforts for this happy hour to help provide emergency assistance to the earthquake and tsunami survivors in Japan.  We will move our fundraising efforts for BPSOS to a later date.  Please come help support the immediate and longer-term needs of earthquake and tsunami survivors!

UPDATE #1: Pasha Lounge has changed their name to Argana Lounge.  Please take note!

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

Our happy hour will benefit MercyCorps' Japan Earthquake Response... http://www.mercycorps.org/... a non-profit organization that provides emergency relief services to those afflicted by conflict or disaster... suggested $5 or $10 donation.  Please note 80% of donations go to MercyCorps' Japan Earthquake Response and 20% of donations will go to the 20s & 30s Asian Going Out Group to cover Meetup fees and expenses

Our happy hours typically bring out 150 - 200 folks... and I wouldn't be surprised with a similar turnout this time around. Other groups that will be joining us are:

If you haven't been there before, Argana Lounge features palatial lights with state of the art decor, custom wave walls, and dramatic mosaic tiling!  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. Also, 20s & 30s Asian Rockstars, please help make all the newcomers feel welcome to our group!

- J.T.

Metro

Closest Metro is Dupont Circle (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.

    It was awesome. Tony and I had to come early because I volunteered to stand at the front to collect donations. I also met up with old friends and some new ones as well. I had a great time!

    If you show up GQ, nobody's going to care. If you show up "hobosexual" as in you look like hobo, there might be some problems.
