Lunar New Year Party!!

*** GUEST LIST IS NOW CLOSED.  GREAT NIGHT FOR SOME FUN, SEE YOU TONIGHT!! ***

***  Guest list closes at 4:30pm Friday...  NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR...  so make sure to sign up before then!  ***

UPDATE #7: To help expedite getting in, PLEASE PRINT OUT YOUR TICKET (click the link at the top of the event posting) and bring with you.  If you don't bring a printed ticket, please note your name on the list will be under the name of the Paypal or credit card account used to make payment.  Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license.  If you have an "American" name and an "Asian" name, more times than not, it will be your "Asian" name...  so please use that name when checking in.  Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your Paypal or credit card account that way.  Feel free to bring a printout of your ticket payment as a backup.  See you there!

UPDATE #6:  Also, a couple of notes about Eden... this place has a serious sound system. That means it WILL be loud. The best time to talk and meet people will be between 9 - 11pm when we have the ROOFTOP to ourselves. After that, it's pretty much time to, yes, party! Also, keep in mind it is a club, so it WILL be crowded. And while we have our own line, with the large number of people coming out, logistically it may take 10 - 15 minutes for them to get us all in.  Come on out, and let's let loose with a night of dancing, music, drinks, and fun!

UPDATE #5:  For our group only, I've secured VIP ROOFTOP access with drink specials to include $5 Amstels, $6 20s & 30s Asian Superstar drinks, and $6 20s & 30s Green Dragon shots from 9 - 11pm.  So make sure to sign up, otherwise you'll be unable to join us ON THE ROOFTOP!  Dress code is in full effect! Suggested attire for men: button up collar shirt with slacks, hard-soled dress shoes. Suggested attire for women: classy and sexy.

UPDATE #4: The early-bird price has now ended and the ticket price is now $10. Looking forward to seeing you there!

UPDATE #3:  Due to unforseen circumstances, we're moving the event right next door to Eden.  Which is even better, because unlike the last time we were there, they've guaranteed us the heated and enclosed VIP rooftop all to ourselves!  And of course, we'll still have lion dancers performing...  because a Lunar New Year party without lion dancers, is well, just another typical party!  Looking forward to letting loose with a night of dancing, music, drinks, and fun while celebrating the year of the Dragon! 

UPDATE #2:  We've been able to extend the $5 early bird price!  The first 200 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before Thursday, January 19th (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, the ticket price will go to $10. See you there!

UPDATE #1: The price will increase from $5 to $10 before Friday, January 13th. To be fair to those who want to join in and are ready to make payment, I'll be removing those that haven't paid by Thursday, January 12th.  So make payment to *truly* lock in your spot.

Ok, it's time to celebrate the year of the Dragon!

While the year of the Rabbit was characterized by calm and tranquility, the year of the Dragon will be marked by excitement, unpredictability, exhilaration and intensity! It's time to let loose and celebrate so I have reserved the rooftop at Eden on Friday, January 20th for our group only! Ages 21+ only. Cover is normally $20, but that is INCLUDED in our ticket price (until 11:30pm)! Not only that:

  • We get our own drink specials on the rooftop 
  • We get our OWN line (ask for the Meetup line)
  • We get our own meetup wristbands and glow bracelets, so we can easily identify each other!! =)

From 9 - 11pm, we'll have drink specials. We'll also have our own DJ spinning lively beats to get you dancing! Not to mention, I've secured lion dancers for us as well.

Space is limited, so sign-up early! Last year, we sold out quick with over 350 folks in attendance and a 4.64 / 5.00 star rating!  We've got an early bird special for this event of $5, yup $5!  The first 200 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before January 13th (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, it will go up to $10.  Secure your slot by rsvp'ing yes *and* making payment!

Also please know that your RSVP is not guaranteed unless we receive payment. When you pay, your online receipt is confirmation that we have received your payment.

So tell a friend, come on out, and let's let loose with a night of dancing, music, drinks, and fun while celebrating the year of the Dragon! Also, 20s & 30s Asian Rockstars, please help make the newbies feel welcome! =)

And in case you missed it, check out photos and comments from our Lunar New Year party last year!

Metro

Farragut West (Orange / Blue Lines) is the closest metro. I suggest metro / cabbing it if possible. I also recommend using wmata for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro and traffic delays.

Dress Code

Dress code includes no hats, no athletic gear, no baggy clothes, no t-shirts, no sneakers / tennis shoes, no flip / flops, no timberlands, no jeans. Suggested attire for men: button up collar shirt with slacks, hard-soled dress shoes. Suggested attire for women: classy and sexy.

Payment Instructions (Paypal account not required):

  • Select "Count Me In" button above
  • Enter the number of guests coming, agree to the refund policy, and click "Ok"
  • Verify correct dollar amount for number of people you're paying for, click "Pay Now" button
  • If you don't have a Paypal account, click "Pay with a Debit or Credit Card"
  • If you have a Paypal account, simply log in, and pay as you normally would via Paypal

Refund Policy

Since we paid in advance for this event, all sales are final unless the event is cancelled or rescheduled. Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend. Work out payment between yourselves, and send us an email letting us know who will be taking your spot.  Thanks for understanding. =)

For those that don't know, the lion dance is a traditional dance, in which performers mimic a lion's movements in a lion costume... and is used to drive away evil spirits or bad energy, as well as to summon luck and fortune.

    Would've preferred the original venue as I know there would've been easier access to seating and perhaps a bit less loud for easier conversation. The lion dance troupe did offer some cultural flavor to the event.

    Had a great time! It's great that the place was packed with folks, but not much room to dance.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
