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!
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.
