Asian American Professionals / Friendship Archway Network 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 sharing how we can be helpful and supportive of each other, we are bridging cultural, digital and other divides and building community Spirit!

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!
