    We will get there around 10:45 to watch the Lion Dance and Taiko drumming. Call me to meetup:[masked]-5734. See you soon! Note: the museum parking lot is where the event is being held, so leave a little extra time to find street parking in the area.

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.
