BIRTHDAY EXTRAVAGANZA for Our Very Own Organizer - Dinner and PARTY CELEBRATION!

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOO HONG!!!

 

Most of you have met Joo Hong.

 

Or rather, he's personally welcomed you with warm greetings and introductions into Asian Groupting.

But in case you haven't, you're sure to have a Joo Hong encounter in the upcoming events in one of his many endless cultural, foodie, and MIXER PARTY events.

 

 

Joo Hong is immediately characterized by his GENEROSITY and OUTWARD FRIENDLINESS to all Asian Groupting members.

 

He loves GOOD FOOD and FINE WHISKEY and RICE WINE which naturally goes hand in hand with his love to PARTY OUT.

So let's ALL celebrate together for this special birthday occasion with dinner.

And afterwards, let's go PARTY OUT!!!

Details on dinner and afterwards SOON TO COME!!!

But for now, just plan on coming out TO CELEBRATE TOGETHER!!!

Event Update: Due to strong demand, I have increased the reservation number to 40. Unfortunately, we are not getting our private room, but seating outside the hall, that could accomodate upto 40 people. Also, you are welcome to bring your favorite wine. The corkage fee has been reduced to $10/bottle. Please note that hard liquor is not allowed.

    Guys/Gals, thank you very much for coming out and celebrate my birthday. I had a lot of fun. Special thanks to Roger for bringing scotch, Michelle for bringing champagne and Craig for bringing gold leaf sake. I am glad that I shared the sake at the dinner. Also, I think I sufficiently entertain all of you during the birthday song. If you were not there, you missed out in my dance.

      Roger, thank you very much driving all the way from the Big Bear. Much appreciated for your presence and present. I know I will enjoy the scotch. Though you have missed out in after party. I bought a bottle of scotch for friends. I need to invite few friends out to show my appreciation. Stay in touch.

    After dinner, we'll continue our celebration at Busby's East that's pretty close by. There's plenty of free parking. There's a DJ and a large dance floor, places to lounge and sit, multiple bars, TV screens to watch sports games, and a game room for shooting pool and playing darts. For anyone that plans to join us after dinner, please RSVP now at http://www.meetup.com/AsianGroupting/events/112205412/. I need an approximate count on who's going. I'll provide more details very soon. But for now please RSVP if you want to drink, dance, and have more fun with us afterwards!

    I want to second Craig's sentiments and add that Joo Hong is a a true gentleman and 50 people wouldn't be enough to fully celebrate what a generous good hearted guy he is! Here's to a wonderful birthday and many more to come!

    1 · April 1, 2013

  • Craig

    Since so many who are new to the group have been leaving comments, I wanted to introduce you all to the finest host to any meet up group. Joo Hong (as he prefers) is always friendly, remembers everyone's name and is always making introductions ensuring you meet everyone around you. He always buys the first bottle so that he can share it with as many as possible. He hosts many events at museums and concert halls as this is one of his many passions. When hosting he tries to include as many people as possible making room for men and women alike when events get full. And he does this all with class and overflowing generous positive energy; I can think of no other who comes close. If you get an opportunity to give him a ride, buy him a drink, or simply spend some time with him you will understand more of what makes him incredible as a host and a man. I know that all who have met him cannot say anything different, he is the consummate host. Happy birthday my brother!

    • Joo Hong K.

      Wow, what a nice thing to say, thank you.

      March 31, 2013

    • JOHN G.

      Lets all make his special day full of joy & laughter along with our appreciation for all those wonderful events he hosted. 6 more days to go =D

      March 31, 2013

  • Lisa K

    30 ppl is not enough to celebrate Joo Hong's birthday! Hope there will be separate events in the other groups for the other ppl. I think almost everyone who is active knows Joo Hong.

    2 · March 31, 2013

  • Stella Z.

    Can I do the party only? Have other plans. Thanks

    March 20, 2013

      1 · March 28, 2013

  • Joo Hong K.

    I have made a reservation at the Sonagi, private room in upstair. I think they can accomodate about 30 people.
    @ Stella, this event is for the dinner event. You need to talk to Jay about the party after the dinner.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
