What we're about

Welcome to Philadelphia Asian Professionals! Join us to network, or to make friends, or to have fun.
...or all of the above!
We will attend a wide variety of events including happy hours, Film Festivals, cultural events, brunches, board games nights, karaoke, and more. This group is FREE to join and most of our events will be FREE to attend.

MeetUp is a terrific way to meet in person, but not always the easiest way to stay in touch with people you've met, so I have also set-up a Facebook group, "The Philadelphia Asian Professionals", and here is a link to the group:

see you soon!

Tea & Social at Kari's Tea Bar at The Bourse on Thursday!

The Bourse Market Philadelphia

Friends - Kari's Tea Bar has opened in the new Food Hall at The Bourse by Independence Mall, let's go there! We'll start gathering at 5pm (its OK to arrive late, join us when you can). Kari's Tea Bar stays open until 6:30pm, so try to arrive before that. However, The Bourse itself stays open later, so we can sit & socialize with our tea later than 7pm. Kari's Tea Bar only serves Tea. However, there are over a dozen spots where you can buy food in The Bourse, so everyone is welcome to mix & match their tea with all types of food, including: Indian, Egyptian, tacos, Belgian chocolates, Filipino food, and lots & lots more! Here is a link to The Bourse website: https://theboursephilly.com SPECIAL DISCOUNT ... Kari's Tea Bar has offered us a 10% discount on Thursday, but you MUST say you are with the MeetUp group when ordering to receive the discount. I will arrive early to save some tables for us. Ideally these tables will be in the center seating area, but if not please look for us. I will have MeetUp signs or call me if you don't see us - David[masked] This is a FREE event to attend, but everyone will have to pay separately for their own tea & food purchases. Everyone is welcome to bring friends, the more the merrier! see you there, David[masked]

Isle Verde Soiree

Isla Verde Cafe

Isle Verde is hosting a free salsa night Wednesdays, with instruction care of my friend Maestro Flaco. He is also a Latin dance sensei from whom I’ve learned a lot & continue to educate myself - in the ways of navigating salsa rhythms. Located at 2725 N American street, the menu offers good Cuban food as well as affordable brick oven pizzas (with pizza dough made fresh on premises). By 8 p.m., the tables will be cleared from the main floor to create space for the lesson. So come out, dance and celebrate the passing of another hump day. Huepa!!! There is free street parking in front of the restaurant.
