Monthly Mandarin Mixer Meetup
大家好! Let's get together to chat in Mandarin and mingle! We meet in the lobby/bar of the Hyatt Hotel downtown. Go up the escalators and you will see the lounge area. We will be BEHIND the bar, where it is usually empty and can accommodate our group. For newcomers, here's a brief intro to the Monthly Mandarin Mixer Meetup: - Members gather together to chat in Mandarin, sip drinks, snack on some appetizers, and make new friends! We usually stay on our feet, instead of sitting, to promote mingling and interacting with more members. - The "official" start time at 6:30PM but feel free to come and go as it suits your schedule. I can't be there until 7:00PM, but our regular members are there to help meet up with the early comers. People stay until as late as 9pm. - We try to speak Mandarin only, but please don't be shy - all levels and nationalities are welcome. There will be a diverse range from beginning language learners to native speakers. - Please order at least one menu item to support our venues. Remember that the continued success of this meetup relies on our ability to find good venues who can generously accommodate a large group! Also don't forget to tip our servers, who have to juggle all of our orders. I look forward to meeting you all - see you soon! Rachel

What we're about

Dajia Hao!

Come get your Mandarin on with our super cool Mandarin Mixer Meetup. We have been around for about 10 years now and are the largest Chinese language Meetup in San Francisco. We hold a variety of social events that promote speaking Mandarin, meeting and mingling with new people. Here is what to expect:

- Mostly a Mandarin-only atmosphere (occasionally we hold "Mandarin optional" events, so keep an eye out for that if you don't have the skills yet to hold a conversation)

- More than half our attendees are Chinese native speakers, the others are advanced or intermediate, and some are beginners. ALL levels are welcome, and people are super patient with learners.

- Our main monthly Meetup is the first Wednesday of the month. We meet at a large venue and people mingle, speak in Mandarin and sip cocktails. These events usually have around 65 people show up, are Mandarin only events, and are super fun and social. We stay on our feet to promote mingling.

- Every other month or so we hold smaller sit-down events, such as lunch/dinner, a trivia night in Mandarin, karaoke or other events that promote socializing in Mandarin in smaller groups.

Do you have an idea you would like to share? Please let me know. I also welcome any assistant organizers who can add variety to our calendar.

Xiexie,
Rachel
