Okay, time to get together for our next happy hour!
Our happy hour will benefit Kollaboration DC (http://kollaborationd... (http://kollaborationdc.org/)) and Sulu DC (http://www.facebook.c... (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=155388419558)) ... Kollaboration DC is a nonprofit organization and movement produced by young Asian and Pacific Islander professionals and students, volunteering their time and skills to celebrate the vast talents of our community and hopefully bring us into the mainstream... Sulu DC is an underground, grassroots network for Asian American and / or Pacific Islander American (AAPI) artists... suggested $5 or $10 donation. Please note 80% of donations go to the Kollaboration DC and 20% of donations will go to the 20s & 30s Asian Going Out Group to cover Meetup fees and expenses.
DJ Saam will be spinning loungy groovy beats for us. Our happy hours typically bring out 150 - 200 folks... and I wouldn't be surprised with a similar turnout this time around. Other groups that will be joining us are:
The DC/MD/VA Taiwan Group (http://taiwan.meetup.com/cities/us/dc/washington/)
AsiaRoom DC Professional Group (http://www.meetup.com/AsiaRoom-DC-Professional-Group/)
If you haven't been there before, Gua Rapo is a sleek lounge with international flair, hookah pipes, and "guarapo" (meaning sugarcane juice) cocktails, for which the place is named after.!
To help continue the friendly tone of this group... I'd like to again encourage each person to have a GOAL OF MEETING 3 NEW PEOPLE at this event. Also, 20s & 30s Asian Rockstars, please help make all the newcomers feel welcome to our group!
Closest Metro is Court House Metro (Orange Line), I suggest metro / cabbing it (esp. during rush hour). I also recommend using wmata (http://www.wmata.com) for travel plans.
