TAPpy Hour and Donation Drive in Chicago

May 14, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Taiwanese American Professionals – Chicago (TAP-Chicago) for our May Happy Hour/ Mixer. Spring is in full bloom, and as temperatues rise, so does the Chicago social scene. Come out and network with new folks, or get reacquainted with old friends at Vinyl Social Food and Drink. Located at the epicenter of Chicago’s River North neighborhood, Vinyl is the premier place to enjoy a comfortable and casual atmosphere, designed to please all of your senses. TAP-Chicago will takeover the downstairs lounge space which features a full bar, pool tables, dart boards, & TV’s.

-Complimentary appetizers will be provided
-Drink specials include: $6 Tito Vodka cocktails and $5 Fireball shots

As part of the mixer, we will be running a school supply donation drive, and accepting brand new school supplies for The Franklin Fine Arts Center. Not all of the Chicago Public League Schools can afford programs which support the fine arts. The Franklin Fine Arts Center provides a foundation for progressing to higher levels of achievement by ensuring all students a rich Fine Arts education. They accomplish this goal by providing a challenging educational program: encouraging students to work collaboratively; focusing on individual learning styles; developing life and social skills; and promoting respectful behavior toward peers and adults.
