For the very first time, the Coalition of Asian/Pacific Americans will be hosting their APIA month festival celebration in Chinatown on Saturday, May 18th, 2013. Calligraphers, martial artists, music bands and even balloon makers will be present for a one day event at Confucius Plaza. The best part? It’s free!
Bring your family and friends to celebrate APIA month and learn about Asian culture!
Full schedule is provided here.
If you’re looking for something new to check out this Saturday, head over to the Sirovich Center on 331 East 12th Street between 1st and 2nd avenue at 6PM for a night of traditional Chinese dance.
The director, Margaret Yuen, has been teaching traditional Chinese dance to the community from her private home studio right on East Broadway! Who knows, maybe she can teach you how to dance – with a sword! Suggested donation of $5 will benefit the Center for Balance Living.
Who says Asians and Asian Americans aren’t political? Join the Friends of John Liu next Monday 10/22 at Red Egg for yummy drinks, snacks, and good conversation before, during, and after the final Presidential Debate. Issues on the table for the evening include equal pay, immigration reform, and help for the middle class–all pertinent to the Asian American community!
Admission is free with cash bar, drink specials and Asian Fusion appetizers. See you on Monday night!
When: Monday, October 22 from 8:30pm to 10:30pm.
Where: Red Egg, 202 Centre Street at Howard Street in SoHo.
