We are pleased to be able to offer this event in May, during Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. According to Wikipedia, the US Congress chose the month of May for two reasons: On May 7, 1843, the first Japanese immigrant arrived in the United States. And more than two decades later, on May 10, 1869, the “Golden Spike” was driven into the First Transcontinental Railroad, which made heavy use of Chinese labor. Since its inception, awareness of AAPI Heritage Month has grown considerably, with more events taking place this year than ever before.

Beer & Guanxi

Wednesday, May 4, 2022 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM

Join us again for the popular Beer & Guanxi networking event that takes place every month (with some exceptions) at different venues throughout the region. Our goal is to provide a networking platform for executives and professionals to interact with each other and find opportunities from, with and within the Chinese business community.


Susana and Angela Wong of Oriental Wok will be hosting the official tapping of the brew on Wednesday May 4 at both of their locations.  We will have raffle prizes from 4-6pm.
