New York Vietnamese Meetup Group Pages

Welcome to the New York Vietnamese Meetup Group!

In order to join the group, please fill out the questions posted in your profile and submit a picture. If you are shy about submitting your picture or have issues posting it, please send it to me personally so that I may recognize you when we meet. The goal of the Meetup is to "use the web to get off of the web." This is a social site where anyone can organize, attend, or alert others on Vietnamese events, but this is NOT a "Vietnamese Match/Lavalife/Zoosk/Tindr" dating site.

Our group meets once a month: We meet once a month formally but have lots of little meetups of different interests throughout the month. So there is something for everyone. There have been meetups in restaurants, billiards/games bars, like Fat Cat, the High Line and Chelsea Piers, for example. Members are invited to suggest and/or host a specific venue, if it is a restaurant, it does not necessarily have to be Vietnamese, but try to be specific about location, type and price. Many of our members like to have a Happy Hour before the event and then go to the actual event itself. Most of the time we will do something after an event to continue the evening.

We also go to cultural events. Past events include those sponsored by Vietnam Heritage Center, Columbia University, NYU, the Vietnamese church in Chinatown, the Asia Society and IVCE (Institute for Vietnamese Culture & Education) etc. If you know of any event you would like the rest of the members to attend, post it on the message board. You can be the "Event Organizer" so that people can RSVP and look for you! "Calendar" is the way to see what's going on and "Photos" is good to see what we have been doing.

Feel free to go through Discussion section and add any feedback that would be helpful to the group. It is a good forum for sharing ideas and thoughts, finding roommates or rooms for rent.

I myself like to try to practice speaking Vietnamese at these gatherings while having a great time. If you don't speak Vietnamese very well, let's try speaking at these events so that you can become better at it. Some of us don't speak Vietnamese well and we are attending the Vietnam Heritage Center Vietnamese School that the meetup helped start. If you are rusty at it, don't worry, we will help you and ourselves. Don't be shy about speaking the language, after all, that's what we are about!

Feel free to contact any of the organizers with any suggestions, questions, and concerns you might have. Looking forward to meeting you and hearing from you!

P.S.: As of October 2014, Meetup decided to make the "Introduction" section the last item after the three brief questions that we ask - which makes no sense. Please be patient as they figure out how to fix this error.
