Okay, time to get together for our next happy hour!
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the gift of cherry blossoms from Japan. To make sure the Tidal Basin is ready for the hundreds of thousands of guests it will receive this year, Japan-America Society of Washington DC will volunteer to help the National Park Service clean it up in time for the bloom. The money raised at this event will go to the National Park Service to help sustain the maintenance of the Tidal Basin throughout the Cherry Blossom Celebration.
Japan-America Society of Washington, DC... http://www.us-japan.org/dc ... is a non-partisan educational organization dedicated to promoting friendship and understanding between Japan and the six million people of the greater Washington DC area.... suggested $5 or $10 donation. Please note 80% of donations go to the National Park Service and 20% of donations will go to the 20s & 30s Asian Going Out Group to cover Meetup fees and expenses. Other groups that will be joining us:
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, Muse features 3 different levels, with 3 different DJs, PLUS a rooftop! Each floor is complete with plasma TVs. They've got a top 40 / old school / house floor, a latin floor, and a hip hop floor! 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 Gallery Place/Chinatown (Red, Yellow, Green Lines), 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.
