    Is there a group that meets anywhere near Chinatown/financial district ever?

      Yes, on Monday evening, Adele Chang holds such a group for casual conversation in Mandarin. She is an ABC who grew up without a solid background in the language and culture, so she majored in Chinese language and culture and now holds that Monday evening social session. She charges for the event in order to pay for the cost of the facilities at BCNC, an organization devoted to the preservation of Chinese culture in the matrix of Chinatown.

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.
