In an exclusive special, TAP-NY presents our very first Stoplight Party at Mission, the hottest club in K-Town! With a subtle nod to Valentine's Day and our upcoming speed dating event, we’ll be distributing three different colored glow sticks that signify your relationship status.
GREEN: “Hey, I’m single and totally ready to mingle.”
YELLOW: *Sigh* “It’s kind of complicated…”
RED: “I’m not interested, but just want to make new friends!”
We will have exclusive access to the space beginning at 7 PM, so come early to grab some drinks with your favorite TAP members and kick off your weekend with a bang.
Asian American Arts Alliance
Lunar New Year Celebration - February 25, 2019
Join us as we welcome the Year of the Pig with a special Lo Hei dinner, drinks, and entertainment!
Lo Hei (or Yusheng) is also known as Prosperity Toss and is a Cantonese-style raw fish salad popularized in Singapore and Malaysia. (We’ll also have a non-fish version available.) For this communal ritual, each Lo Hei ingredient is introduced with a saying symbolizing a wish for the new year, culminating in all participants shouting wishes and tossing the ingredients with chopsticks—the higher your toss, the higher your fortune’s growth. Emcee Kate Rigg (Slanty Eyed Mama) will lead us through the ritual in a fun and festive performance. Learn more.

Hapa Mag is a publication by Hapas, for everyone.
Here at Hapa Mag, we believe that the word Hapa celebrates our unique identities. Throughout its history, "Hapa," has taken on different meanings for different people. It originated from the Hawaiian pidgin word for "half," and for many of us, it has come to mean that you're part Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, and/or Asian.
To be Hapa is to be a part of a diverse and growing community with many perspectives. We hope to capture these mixed stories and experiences within each issue of Hapa Mag. Read all about it here.
