*** It's a great day for happy hour! See you tonight! ***
UPDATE #4: Drink specials are $4 Coronas, $8 20s & 30s Asian Superstar drinks, and $6 house wine until 8pm!
UPDATE #3:The following APA organizations have also joined us (for a total of 13 groups): OCA DC, The Social Tea House, Team CosLove, TAP-DC. Come join us as we socialize, network, and drink for a great cause!
UPDATE #2:Per my email, I need volunteers to help sign people in with name tags and to meet / greet folks! This is a great way to meet people, and help kick start a friendly vibe to the event. I need volunteers to fill 30 minute slots (which goes by very fast) on the hour. If you can help, please send me a “message” (go to my Meetup profile, and click “Message”) letting me know which top three time slots you prefer, in order of preference (do not post a comment on the event posting)!
UPDATE #1: Looks like this will be a good one! Tell a friend, come on out, meet new people, and help support a good cause! And again, I encourage everyone to have a GOAL OF MEETING 3 NEW PEOPLE!
Okay, time to get together for our last happy hour of the year!
Our happy hour will benefit the Mayor's Office of Asian Pacific Islander Affairs Toy Drive, a program which delivers, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. MOAPIA’s mission is to improve the quality of life for District Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders through advocacy and engagement. Please bring an unwrapped toy, or a $10 donation. Let's get in the spirit of the holidays and help make a child's Christmas a little warmer! apia.dc.gov/page/about-moapia Please note 100% of donations go to Toys for Tots.
The following APA organizations will be joining us:
• DC Asian Pacific American Film
• Korean Waves
DJ Saam will be spinning beats for us. Our happy hours typically bring out 100 - 150 folks... and I wouldn't be surprised with a similar turnout this time around (Note: I've been getting this question a lot lately, but please know our 20s & 30s Asian Going Out Group's RSVP numbers are not inflated due to signups from a previous "rotating" or "recurring" event).
If you haven't been there before, Asia DC is a premier nightlife and music club! Before it became a regular stop on the music circuit, it was an Asian fusion restaurant. 21+
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. To help do this, for an icebreaker, we'll put your name in a jar as you walk in, and then give you someone else's name from the jar. Also, 20s & 30s Asian Rockstars, please help make all the newcomers feel welcome to our group!
Metro and Parking
Closest Metro is Farragut West (Orange, Blue, Silver lines) and Farragut North (Red line). I suggest Metro / cabbing / Ubering it (especially during rush hour). I also recommend using wmata.com for travel plans. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage. I recommend using parkopedia.com for garage parking planning.
Most people will be coming from work, so business casual will be the norm.
If you have any special needs (e.g. wheelchair, dietary for events with food included, etc.), let us know in advance (a week or more before the event) and we will do our best to accommodate (message me through my Meetup profile). If you let us know the day of the event, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to help. Thank you for understanding and we appreciate the courtesy of a heads up!
When & Where
20s & 30s Asian Going Out Group
We are the 2nd largest Asian Meetup group in the world! This social group is for Asian-Pacific Americans (or anyone who appreciates and enjoys being part of the APA / API community) mostly in their 20s and 30s who enjoy dancing, dining, karaoke, clubs, dim sum, outdoor activities, road trips, and other local activities (APA films, dragon boat, lunar new year).
This group is for married people, single people, new-in-town, and people who have been in the Washington DC area for a while and are simply looking for a new group to go out with. Membership is FREE, and you only have to be friendly and fun to join!
We have a regular happy hour where we raise money for various local Asian charities (all voluntary donations).
