Asian American Professionals / Friendship Archway Alliance Monthly Meetup

Join Asian American professionals and people of all backgrounds interested in helping to build One City. EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED!

Through face-to-face conversations over lunch on how we can be helpful and supportive of each other, we are bridging cultural, digital and other divides.

This is a monthly networking opportunity to connect people interested in Asian topics, Asian and Pacific Islanders, Asian Americans and others. You will enjoy networking conversations over lunch (self-pay) on the 3rd Sundays of each month from 12:30PM to 2:30PM. There is a round of self-introductions so you will know who you may wish to followup with. This community event takes place at the same time and location each month: at Burma Restaurant at 740 6th St. NW, 2nd floor, Wash. D.C. (one block from Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro, red line).

Meet with local Asian professionals, business owners, consultants and people of diverse backgrounds interested in building Washington D.C. as One City as well as building better US-China relations, a better Chinatown DC, and a friendlier, happier and healthier local and global community of allies and friends.

More info, see,

Burma Restaurant is one block from Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro station, red, green, yellow lines. Follow signs to exit at Chinatown, walk on H street to 6th, turn right, it is middle of block on right, look for small door to 2nd floor in between 2 restaurants. Paid parking entrance also next to restaurant.

We appreciate the excellent work of the Mayor's Office on Asian and Pacific Islanders Affairs. Mayor Vincent Gray played a critical role in shaping the future of DC's Chinatown by his legislative leadership and action in designating Chinatown as a DC destination for Asian American businesses. Come and network with Asian Americans who are holding this vision!

    I have gone to several Asian American Professionals meetups and as always this one was great. It is well-organized and efficiently helps people network. I have gained 5 clients for my online English tutoring through one person I met at this meetup some months ago. Today I focused on networking with people for other causes and I met several people who share my interests. Thank you meetup organizers!

    Another really great meetup. I go to this meetup every month and it never fails to produce great connections and an enjoyable atmosphere. I made two great contacts that have a lot of potential. I also set four sample sessions with potential clients. I also, love the food. Especially the Curry Chicken. I highly recommend this meetup to anyone who is looking for friends, clients, contacts, or just a good time.
