The AAJA-Asia Seoul subchapter is having its annual holiday party on Saturday, Dec. 3, from 6-9 p.m. at Bennett’s Bar in Itaewon.
FOOD: We’ll be indulging in a buffet lineup of traditional American fare, from ham and turkey to mashed potatoes. Did your family’s holiday table have lumpia or sashimi instead? When you RSVP by Nov. 25, you can send us your menu requests. Bennett’s is open to ideas. They will also offer a select discount cocktail menu until 9 p.m.
GAME TIME: When we’ve had our fill and the holiday drinks are flowing, we’ll kick off our second edition of Korean news trivia. It’s been a wild year of scandals, exploding electronics and political absurdities, so study up!
MUSIC: After trivia, the acoustic band 2Much, with AAJA’s own Peter Daley, will be playing all the cover tunes you could desire.
OUTREACH: We will be collecting warm clothes and other items for the local homeless, as well as old towels for animal shelters, to get them through the harsh winter. If you’d like to join the teams to deliver these gifts or have ideas to do even more, let us know.
YOUR VOTE: You have one more chance to make your vote count this year. You can still sign up for our Elective Posts and Non-Elective Posts until Nov. 16, and for the next two weeks we’ll put the board nominations to a vote. These are the people giving your membership the bang for the buck, so encourage the best candidates for the job to step forward! We’ll announce AAJA Seoul’s new leaders at the party.
RSVP: The price is 30,000 members/35,000 nonmembers* early bird until 11/25, and 40,000 at the door. To RSVP:
1. Send your payment to this account: Woori Bank 1002 039 230288 (이경은). In your transfer memo, put something unique like your name – NOT something generic like “AAJA” or “dinner.” (For payment issues, email email@example.com.)
